    Her and Florence seemed down to earth compared to Diana Ross. Ballard had her own issues with addiction, but Wilson seemed to be the most "normal".
    Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right you meet the same idiots coming around from the left.

        When someone mentions the Supremes, I always think of Diana Ross.

          She was the face, for sure. Florence Ballard had the strongest, best vocals of the three, according to Marvin Gaye.

            The first album I ever purchased was The Supremes Greatest Hits. Blue cover and the ladies were wearing white gowns. Fantastic music. RIP.

                        I love the old vinyl. I guess it's the nostalgic effect. It takes me back to a happier more carefree time. I have a modest collection of LP's and 45's and a component stereo system so I can listen to them whenever I wish.
