    Take a closer look at me

    In Mary's book supreme glamour she states that Jean recorded take a closer look as a solo artist for possible supremes release and we added our vocals to these tracks later. I know t andantes did a lot of backup work on that lp right on but were Mary and cindy on that track it's a great song and Jean was superb on lead vocals

    As we know the songs that Frank Wilson produced Mary and Cindy sang on them. Plus You Move Me and Then I Met You.

    The backing vocals always seemed to me to be Mary and Cindy. I do love the track -

    This track always sound like just The Andantes, but Mary and Cindy could certainly be in the mix somewhere. I'm always pleased to find out when M&C are on tracks I assumed were The Andantes.

    I agree with you, Thornton. I always figured it's only the Andantes on this track. Great song btw. One of my favourites.

    Henry Cosby produced Just Take A Closer Look at Me and Al Kent did You Move Me. Jimmy Roach did Then I Met You

    Frank did Ladder, Loving Country, Everybody, but i love you more

    the BG vocals for Take A Closer Look were recorded on 1/20. my guess here is that it's only the A's [[or whatever studio singers). It is certainly possible that there were multiple recording dates for backing vocals but it's not listed on anything. we have dates of multiple Jean lead dates for this song. but if we assume just that 1 recording date then it's most likely just the studio singers

    that's right! i knew there was a fifth one!

    i'm also guessing that frank was the Exec producer so he would have had a hand in selecting which tracks were included

    thanks for t enlightenment I think Mary and cindy would have sounded great on that record alone but t A's did a good job.

    It is possible that Mary and Cindy might have added their vocals seeing that it was after the farewell show and before their Ed Sullivan debut. They had a full month for recording and rehearsal

    absolutely. there's basically no info on the track Baby Baby but then other songs have lots and lots of recording dates noted. like when lead was recorded, when additional lead was recorded, when strings were added, etc.

    So it is certainly possible that we just don't have the info

    "Take A Closer Look At Me" is a dynamite track! Jean and the back-up girls soar! I think it would have been an excellent follow-up single to "Up The Ladder To The Roof". "Everybody Has The Right To Love" was a pleasant-enough album track, but it lacked hit-single potential. [[The 45 mix always seemed too slow to me, whereas the LP version was a tad more uptempo.) Either way, "Take A Closer Look At Me" had the hit-record spark.
