"The Best of the Supreme Ladies is a fantastic collection of music from the women who were members of the Supremes from 1970 until 1977. This collection gives each member a chance to shine in her own rite. These are solo recordings from the late 80's. Interestingly enough, the best songs on the CD come from LYNDA LAURENCE, a short-term member of The Surpremes. She replaced CINDY BIRDSONG in 1972 and left in 1973. Of the 18 songs in this collection, there are 7 songs from Lynda. Two of these songs are worth a repeat play. They are the soulful "TRUE LOVE CANT BE REPLACED" and "THE MAN IN MY LIFE", a great song that should have received radio airplay." Man In My Life" was the perfect late 80's pop record. "True Love" is a great romantic ballad that should be shared with someone special. Other songs worth noting from Lynda include "CRYING SHAME" and "OUTSIDE LOOKING IN". JEAN TERRELL who replaced Diana Ross in The Supremes in 1970, has two songs that show how versitle of a stylist she was. Jean starts off the CD with "EVERYTHING TO ME" a pop song with a jazzy, sexy sound. Jean has never sounded better. The other song from Jean, "TOO MANY MEMORIES" is a gem. I had to listen to this song three times before I realized that Jean was singing it. The reason for that is because she is singing in a higher register, something she was never allowed to do on the old Supremes hits of the 70's. Her voice is stunning, making "Too Many Memories" one of the best songs on the CD. It is truely a musical gem. MARY WILSON, who was with The Supremes from the beginning to the end also has two selections on the Supreme Ladies. Unfortunatly, one of these songs; "DONT GET MAD, GET EVEN" is the worst song on the CD. What were they thinking? The song sounds forced and over produced. You hear more from the back-up singers than you do from Ms. Wilson. "OOOH CHILD" is a much better song, showcasing Marys' rich, full voice. ! She make the song come alive. Its a nice song to listen to. SCHERRIE PAYNE, who replaced Jean terrell as lead singer of The Supremes in 1973 has some great moments on this all girl collection. "STOP, I NEED YOU NOW" is a great dance tune. Her remake of Diana Ross' "AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH" is wonderful! She makes the song her own, completely updating the tempo, while keeping the gospel feel of the original. This song is one of the best surprises from the CD. Scherrie has six songs on this album. Last but not least, SUSAYE GREENE. She was the final member of the 70's Supremes that Mary Wilson hired to replace Cindy Birdsong in 1976. She only has two songs on The Supreme Ladies CD, but one of them is the best song from this collection. "FREE", a song that she co-wrote is truely the most oustanding record from this collection. Her vocal performance is stunning, with jazz and gospel nuances. This song is a celebration of life and of great music. "Free" is reason enough to buy this collection of The Supreme Ladies at their very best!"
