    Search Your Mind was perfect for the Jean era Supremes



    This song was recorded by the 70's female group the Fuzz but would have been perfect for Jean,Mary and Cindy.

    I think you are right ! And with Jean in the lead , I hear 'hit' in it!! From 1971 , kind of ahead of its time a couple years.
    ( is it me or is there some thing off-key in the vocals?)

    They also did a Motown cover:

    This sounds to me like The Fuzz had been listening to the Supremes Frank Wilson produced albums.

    I would have made a good Mary led song. It is clearly a departure from the Fuzz's earlier sound. This sounds like an imitation Frank Wilson production.

    Looking at the photo of the Fuzz on that CD reminds me a bit of the Supremes iconic afro photo on the album "New Ways, But Love Stays".

    Does anyone have any current info. on the ladies in this group? I thought I had
    heard one them passed away? Why was their career so short?

  8. #8
    Yes definitely can hear Jean and the ladies doing this one. I have the Fuzz's album and enjoy it very much, but admittedly I never paid much attention to this one. I am really feeling it!!

    Ooooooooh very nice, and yes I can hear the Jean-Supremes doing it too! Might have to try and get this album

    Barbara Gilliam passed away in 2008 (she lead on the cover of "Stand By your Man" as the Passionettes who became the Fuzz).
    The last I heard Sheila Young and Val Williams with Danielle Angelique Mims, performs for special one off events



    L-R Shelia, Barbara and Val




    Val, Barbara and Shelia (who was the main lead singer and who wrote their songs)

    i'd love to hear MJC work with Carole King and sing I feel the earth move. the whole Tapestry album would have worked great for the girls. i think that would have been an amazing match for an outside producer.

    Bobby Taylor did the sessions for It's Too Late and i think it's one of the stronger "promises kept" tracks. it's a beautiful song and jean is (typically) wonderful on it. and the backing track and orchestration is also well done

    they did a lot of work with Bobby during 1971. sometimes he was the sole producer and sometimes partnering with Frank Wilson

    Bobby only productions
    *What do you have to do (duet w Four Tops)
    *it's too late
    *Poinciana (duet w four tops)
    *Still water
    *Eleanor rigby
    *and i thought you loved me
    *good loving ain't easy (duet w four tops)
    *joy to the world (duet w four tops)
    *If (duet w four tops)

    I had no idea Bobby Taylor worked with The Supremes, that's great.

    Thanks, sup_fan. "And I Thought You Loved Me" is one of my favorite Jean vocals. It would have been great if Promises Kept had included that and other similar or equally good tracks. With Bobby Taylor on board, it might have leaned more R&B than Touch or Floy Joy.

    not sure why Bobby focused on so many cover tunes with the girls. the productions def sound good. and of course there's the age-old question of how many of the duets were initially intended as a duet. or were two leads combined

    here's what the girls recorded in 71. some tracks for the Touch lp were actually done in late 70

    Henry Cosby
    *If you could see me now (with four tops)
    *call me (with four tops)
    *let's make love now (with four tops)
    *chain reaction (with four tops)
    *if i were your woman
    *may his love shine forever
    *all i need
    *make it with you
    *I ain't got the love of the one i love
    *take your dreams back

    Ashford & Simpson
    *one more bridge to cross (with four tops
    *I'm glad about it (with four tops)
    *can't get you out of my mind

    Clay McMurray
    *i'll try not to cry (with four tops)
    *where would i be without you baby (with four tops)
    *you gotta have love (with four tops
    *i wonder where we're going (with four tops)
    *hold onto me (with four tops)
    *never can say goodbye
    *walk with me, talk with me
    *function at the junction (with four tops)
    *it's your thing (with four tops)
    *i ain't that easy to lose
    *Take a look inside

    Duke Browner
    *bring back your love (with four tops)
    *when i'm with you (with four tops)

    Johnny Bristol
    *i can't believe you love me (with four tops)

    Joe hinton
    *don't let me lost this dream (with four tops)

    Harry balk
    *gimme some lovin' (with four tops)
    *i had a dream (with four tops)

    Gloria Jones, Pam Sawyer
    *i'll let him know i love him
    *oh my poor baby

    The clan
    *chained to yesterday

    smokey
    *floy joy

    Frank wilson (aside from the stuff he did with Bobby)
    *tears left over
    *this is the story
    *here comes the sunrise
    *happy is a bumpy road
    *johnny raven
    *touch
    *have a lost you
