VINE VOICEon 30 January 2015
Three cute little girls in white gloves sit on high bar stools looking the very essence of 1960s sophistication. Who knew back then that they would become the most famous girl group in the world radically changing American attitudes to black music, bringing about major controversy and spawning a Broadway hit musical.

The girls do sound a bit raw on this recording but you can already hear the seeds of the vocal sensation they would become. Diana's "Minnie Mouse" voice would deepen ad broaden and Florence Ballard' soulful (and woefully underused ) voice is brought to the front here on a couple of tracks, though she would never have the crossover appeal of Ms Ross.Meanwhile the ever reliable, and longest surviving Supreme, Mary Wilson does what back up singers do best.

Take a listen to the witty gimicky "Buttered Popcorn" to get the full flavour of this earliest of early albums

So once more a huge thank you to Hallmark for making this album available in its original format

This re-released CD features the original and so called `mega rare' `Stool Cover With The Girls Sitting On Stools'.
If you have the original album with that cover you are sitting on a goldmine!!
Upwards of $1000 in the USA at the moment!

(If you do and I helped you realize it I am not averse to a small reward BTW)
Of particular note is the first track Your Heart Belongs to me which was penned by Smokey Robinson and was expected to be a massive hit for them at the time.
The lineup includes the fabulous combination of Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard.
Each of the latter takes a turn on the lead vocals with Mary on Baby Don't Go and Cindy on Buttered Popcorn.

BUT Amazon, at the time of writing, has not provided a track list.
So this may be of interest and use?

As always if you see any typos add a note and I will correct and credit you with the correction- just add a comment......

While the U K had an album wth a totally different sleeve and a few tracks changed to add what were the his singles of 1964 this is actually more important.
Hallmark has now issued around a dozen T M albums on CD-a first for many of them at around #3 each as they sell in markets.
Probably this was the original sleeve note as shown inside the folded leaflet but if so why does it talk about the Supremes as winners of talent shows etc when they were known as the Primettes and this was the name on their previous single Tears Of Sorrow made a few months earlier and the only one to include Barbara Martin as the group began as a quartet
