  1. Flo and Mary Not On Reflections per Eddie Holland

    I can't find the thread in which a lively debate took place a few months ago regarding "Reflections" and who is singing background, so I'll just start this new post. In the Hollands' book Eddie...

    Thanks for the info Tom and Reese. I guess Motown was serious about soundalikes, whether real ("I Can't Satisfy") or imagined ("1-2-3").

    I've been wondering if Freda's Motown recordings have ever made the rounds. Seems like it would've been a good selection for one of the Motown Unreleased volumes.

    Great vocally. I have a couple of their albums. I think I've only seen one live performance and they lip synced that, so I wasn't visually impressed. But I LOVE the lead singer's voice. She's...

    Talent wise, the 3D's were most certainly in the Supremes' league, not to mention all three were sexy as hell (like the Supremes), all three were capable lead singers (which JMC were not), and they...

    Actually, the 3Ds never had a #1 pop hit either on Billboard. "When Will I See You" stalled at #2. (Although it did go #1 on Cashbox.) Outside of that song and "TSOP" general radio seems to have...

    It has a pimp-esque quality to it, for sure. But that was the industry at that time. The Supremes were probably the rule and not the exception for women- or girls, as was the case when the Supremes...

    Pretty much everything Gordy did where his female artists is concerned, only worked because most of them were very young. Hell naw he wouldn't have gotten away with half the shit he did in the 60s...

    Oh hell no, Motown wasn't going to release anything with Flo singing unless she was bringing up the background. That solo release offer was what I mentioned earlier, with Motown signing Flo to keep...

    Since music history has taught us that the Andantes only replaced irrelevant people, if irrelevancy describes your siblings, I'm sure the Andantes could be persuaded to stand in during the holidays...

    Gman wasn't suggesting Flo wasn't fired, he was wondering about what would happen had Flo simply quit.

    Flo had no real power as a Supreme. None of them did. If Gordy had wanted to ditch all three...

    Absolutely. All of those folks were popular around my way. I'd add to that names like Taylor Dayne, Culture Club/Boy George, Expose, and Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine and some others. In the 80s...

    Aww man, you're no fun. Go ahead, argue something.:p

    I think the family thing is a myth. I think what all the Motowners feel is a bond through the experience of Motown in the golden age. So even though you might have someone like Martha Reeves who...

    If Gordy didn't bar Mary Wells or any other high profile act that left the company from recording again, he wouldn't have done so to Diana. And I would be shocked if he could legally bar anyone from...

    A lot of this makes sense. Like I said before, my thought was based on an assumption that Gordy still receives royalties from the royalties signed away from other artists. If he doesn't, then there's...

    If she quit and left the group in a bind, yeah she would've been in breech of contract, I imagine.

    Of the female groups of the 70s, the Supremes are tops for me, but the 3Ds nip at their heels. It's a shame that the group wasn't bigger. When I watch their performances from that time, IMO they were...

    George Michael was another one that got a lot of play on the r&b stations. I remember everybody loved him.

    Yeah I remember Remy getting some BET airtime late at night. JLo did too, but that wasn't out of the ordinary because she was Latino.
