    Shamefully, I know very little about The Three Degrees besides "When Will I See You Again"... the only song of theirs I've ever heard on the radio... and, I'm in the UK! Something to correct... soon

    That is shameful TT, but you're in luck cos their albums (including "Maybe" deluxe) are readily available on CD with bonus tracks in most cases. A great starting point would be their Live! album (from their Philly years) which captures their stage sound wonderfully. Saw their show 3 times back then and met Richard (Richie) Barrett at one of them who was their manager at the time. Here's a treat "Year Of Decision" on a later live performance with Fayette, Valerie and Sheila from (your) left to right as you view.

    Just one more? The entire show with interviews and solo performances - why not whilst I'm this nostalgic?




    Be sure to check out The Three Degrees singing "The Boss" on YouTube.

    Back to Diana Ross now!

    I hang my head with the shame of considering me-self a friend I echo MysterySinger and rather tend to beg you to start with the glorious, sanctified, amazing, bada$$ expanded Maybe. A killer and thriller of an lp if there ever was. Still have my LP, I do.

    Their version of Maybe. OMG. Valerie WENT IN!!! I heard that drag queens in the past used to lip to this song especially the speaking parts. I would die to hear them do this one day.

    Forme Jeanís voice with its sweet, soulful sophistication was spot on for the 70s Supremes.But Iím a sucker for Jeanís voice all day long.
    Ialso adore the Three Degrees but ironically, itís Valerieís funky, raw, sexyvoice that sold me on them with Maybe. Gives me gooseflesh every single time. Ilike Sheilaís voice and on TSOP the girls rival the Andantes (and THATís acompliment). Sheilaís great but a little TOO smooth for my taste. Hey, justimagine WWISYA led by Jean! Sorry, getting too fanboy now.

    A lot of people thought it was Jean Terrell with the Supremes singing When Will I See You Again. Remember they had not had a new record out for while by then. I thought it sounded like Jean, but I knew she had left the group the year before. Maybe the Three Degrees were attempting to approximate her sound with the Supremes?
