    I do think "Love" was probably the more commercial song, but it would have most likely ended up in the "flop" column because it seems like the public preferred the Supremes to stick to a certain...

    That would depend on whose idea it was. Did she come up with this, or did the producers of the award show conjure it up? If the producers did this, I'd call it a rip off. If Toni was behind it, I'd...

    Yeah, Flo was one singer out of how many? No record label gets it right with every singer. Look at Motown.

    Sup, I just looked through my booklet and I don't see that mentioned anywhere.

    Once I realized that Mary was singing Jean's part, I figured if solo versions do exist, that the reason why a full...

    Except it didn't. The very next single, "Floy Joy", was their best charting single since "River Deep". If any song or album killed the Supremes, it was "I Guess I'll Miss the Man" and the JW album....

    That version of "Touch" also seems to be possible evidence that the song was indeed recorded as solos and then put together, as rumored, because Mary sings a verse that Jean sings in the actual...

    When has a Christmas album ever not been the right move for a singer? It's one of the safest bets for sales, especially a singer of Diana's caliber and status. If Decca has spoken to Diana about...

    Maniac specifically said Diana said Decca has asked for a Christmas album, so I don't think there's room to speculate on it being something else.

    That being said, wouldn't the Harold Arlen album...

    Yeah, first thought would be Mary singing it, and I think it would have been good. [[Did she ever do it live? Seems like it would've been right up her alley over the years.) But Scherrie might have...

    Could have been any number of things that caused Jean to bounce in and out. For me the obvious one is just the need to perform, to have that creative outlet when you were bitten by the performance...

    Berry may have been pleased enough when he caught her performance to offer her a contract as a solo even if he wasn't in need of a replacement Supreme. Berry didn't stop signing female acts because...

    Yeah, there's all this speculation about Jean but we really need her to give us her side of the story. It's like everyone else is trying to tell the Jean Terrell story except the lady herself, which...

    I think because the song is such a classic, it's difficult to hear anyone but Dorothy singing it. I don't think it was really the group's style either, but it might have been interesting to hear how...

    Too many stories about the ugly side of the business to think Jean just didn't want to promote the album as best she could. Innocently, I can't imagine that A&M wanted her to do anything she hadn't...

    Jean was in the studio as part of a group of Supremes, not as a soloist, so she was recording what was being offered the group. Those Motorcity recordings were beneath the talent of nearly- if not...
