    in the studio i think MSS might have slightly outshined MSC. both were excellent though. very strong 3-part harmony

    MSC probably had a slightly better blend, as C (who was typically singing the...

    very fair points. I agree that many of Flo's leads are not that amazing. nor do they support the POV that she was one of the most gifted/amazing singers and forced into the background.

    but we do...

    yeah in the LYG booklet, it lists out recording dates and she's on much more than just the 2 songs. or at least much more recording was still going on after she joined.

    it could be that the producers didn't want to just sit on the backing track. I'm pretty sure the producers paid for the initial sessions and were then reimbursed once assigned to and recorded by a...

    i agree that the backing vocals should have been higher on Reflections. especially on the chorus. the 3 part harmony is amazing on the track

    see i think Surrender is just a bit more in line with Mountain. it has a hugeness and power. yet it doesn't try to mimic Mountain. so IMO that makes it an ideal follow up. Remember would then be...

    I think DLMTW is much more of a gospel disco song (assuming they would have used the same production and track that Thelma got). LH is so different - the sensual slow intro and the steamy pounding...

    actually according to the Surrender EE booklet both Surrender and Remember were done around the same time. the tracks and demos were done by 9/12/70. and on 9/19/70 Mountain hit #1 on the charts. ...

    this is one of my fav DR ballads. just gorgeous. but i don't know 1) if it would have worked as a single and 2) as follow up to LH. had she never done LH, it might have been a good follow up to I...

    i'd love the hear a version of Symphony with all of the music and instrument tracks unmuted. see what they might have pulled out at different points

    for instance, there are the wonderful horn...

    it is a very interesting song, from a structure perspective, within the supremes catalog. It's essentially 3 large verses. there's a bridge between verse 1 and 2 and then the modulations during 2...

    it's a wonderful song. But i'm gonna go out on a limb here - i do not think it should have been the follow up to Mountain. I think they should have gone with Surrender first and then Remember Me. ...

    from what we've read, IHAS was cranked out in just a matter of days. The track was cut on 9/22, strings added 9/28, lead vocals added 9/29 and then released on 10/6.

    so probably in the interest...

    i appreciate the variety of the backgrounds. There's actually quite a bit of the hit records with backing harmonies

    Diana's talent, versatility, style, skill, work ethic and sensational stage presence put her in a category above and beyond any other artist at motown. the men or the women. she's simply in a...

    yeah i was meaning it should have followed Magician as single 2 from the lp. not #3. by then the interest in the album was waning

    one more thought

    if low background vocals were to blame for a song not going #1, then how do you explain You Can't Hurry Love? the single version is very hard to hear. they come up a little...

    Same can be said about Reflections. I thought that song should've at least been #1 and if Mary and Marlene's voices were brought to the forefront in the version that was released, it would've been...

    I agree that the big hits really needed to stay with Diana. but there's so much more within the albums they could have done. you easily could have M and F each do 1 lead song. also i think they...
