    Wow, they totally should have done "Sing For Your Supper." That's the problem with the Rodgers & Hart songbook, you have so many songs to pick from. Now I wish I had a time machine and slipped the...

    Sing Ballads & Blues - Poor idea to do a speciality album so soon in their career without establishing the girls as hitmakers and Motown was right to shelve it. I know several of the tracks would...

    I don’t believe those capes went with the red/maroon gowns from the Touch photo sessions. The colors clashed. They may have possibly gone with the orange beaded jacket and pants, but I can’t say...

    Mary has most of the gowns from 1968 to 1977. Aside from the 6 sets completely destroyed in the Mexico fire, there are a few 70s sets she doesn't have. I don't believe she has the floral ones nor the...

    Marv, that is something Mary and I haven't been able to figure out. She called me about this a few months ago and it was absolutely bizarre as she explained what happened. How her leotard ended up in...

    I think a lot of it had to do with giving HDH a break and allowing others an opportunity to do some work with them. HDH may have had a lock on them when it came to singles. A major team like HDH...

    It's not a problem to title it Michael Jackson & the Jackson Five when it has both Jackson Five and Michael solo tracks. I would have a major problem with it if it was all Jackson Five songs and they...

    They did record it. It was a song called “Love Love Love (You Know How Much I Need You).” It was cut sometime in 1971. I heard a rumor it was suppose to be a single.

    Actually it contains both Mary & Marlene and the Andantes' backgrounds. If you listen closely you can hear it switch back and forth between the two. For whatever reasons, they spliced them together....

    Mark Ronson is a perfect producer for her. He did Amy Winehouse's Back To Black album. He has the ear for a great mix between a throwback and contemporary sounds. I imagine what he would do with her...

    I think the proper title would be Levi Stubbs and the Andantes. There's no Vandellas on this with the exception of Martha's lead vocal at the end.

    HDH's departure caused a lasting damage to Motown that they never recovered from. It's true Motown had five singles in the top 10 in late 1968, but that doesn't mean the company ever regained what...

    Jukebox musicals never do well at the Tony's. People love them because they recognize the songs, but most of these shows lack creativity and a solid book. The Tony's like originality and shows of...

    “You’re Gonna Come To Me” was recorded, I believe, 5 times. Four versions have been released, one version is still unreleased.

    “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart” was recorded three times. The...

    Scherrie Payne was once told from people inside Motown that the label pressed DJs to stop playing “Walking” and push “Love Hangover” instead. Whether that was Motown not wanting the Supremes to get a...

    It should be noted that High Energy charted on Billboard's Top 200 LP chart at #42 and on the R&B chart at #24. This was their second highest charting album in the 70s behind Right On in 1970. It...

    High Energy is one of my favorite albums by the ladies. Certainly the best album of the Scherrie Payne years and up there with Right On and New Ways. I know a lot of people love The Supremes, but I...

    You’ve got this all wrong. He hated Mary’s work ethic? Where did he ever say that or is that just your personal assessment? I gather it’s the latter.

    She wasn’t allowed to sing lead when Jean was...

    In the same interview Dennis said he was signed to Motown with the plan as being a replacement for a Contour or a Temptation which ever came first. It’s rather interesting that in 1966, Motown had...

    Really? The public wouldn't like it and would prefer to see Mary in blonde wig and gold gown? Please.

    I didn't realize the addition of two women singing a song they performed every night in the live show since 1966 would cause that much disruption. There was no political undertones in any of this. It...

    I agree. I love this live version. I love watching the string section during this number and the Temptations take it home with that choreography.
