`Full of classic images of the group's inspiring style' --Daily Mail
This spectacular celebration of the ephemera and performance costumes worn by The Supremes, one of the most successful groups of the sixties, traces their career from the early days when they were known as The Primettes to the glamorous height of their fame in the 70s. Only the Beatles had more number one hits than The Supremes and their success story helped change racial perceptions during the time of the American Civil Rights movement. A magnificent collection of dresses worn by Mary Wilson, Diana Ross and Florence Ballard for live performances, television performances and on album covers are featured alongside contemporary photographs and magazine spreads.See all Product description

Starts out with an interesting introduction from Mary Wilson.
Its not a work of great intellect nor does it claim to be.
What it has is lots of nice pictures presented alongside some interesting facts.
It captures something of the times and does throw some light on to what was - by all accounts - a time of very fast social change.
Its a book that can be read from cover to cover and also dipped into as and when.
The book is well made and feels good to hold.
I got this last year as a present for my 50th birthday and love it!
This is a mostly a coffee table type book of pictures and record/sheet music sleeves. If you are after gossip and different interpretations of who did/said what to whom, this is not one of those books, but there is plenty of that elsewhere, in-print and on the internet. However, this has great pictures and is nicely presented and I am glad to add it to the collection.
