    As In and Out Of Love was peaking on the charts, Gordy was going crazy. HDH was on strike and a new Supremes single was needed. The girls were hot again with 4 No 1's and two top tens. The story...

    I think the year this came out was 1974 or 75. It was during the time the group was dormant. I remember Mary complaining about it in a fan club newsletter.

    I love High Inergy's body of work. Vernessa and Barbara were gifted singers. After the debut lp Motown seemed to peg them into teeny bop disco stuff. It was their last three lps that gave them...

    I'm sorry but the first time I heard this back in the 80s my first thought was...should never have come out of the vault. The song is clearly designed as a ballad and to disco it was a mistake to...

    The way I understand it, all of Motown's performers were signed as soloists, that way Motown had control on how they used them. In doing this, Flo was able to sub for a pregnant Wanda Rogers in 1962...
