    Tony Turner [[and this is certainly not a perfect source) mentioned...

    no that's my point - the girls didn't do lots of big stadium style gigs. not sure if Diana did at the time either. did the temps? I know Stevie broke into that, especially during his tour with the...

    i think the idea of giving each Supreme a spotlight segment is great. I just think the material they selected and the women they selected lacks modern relevance.
