Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

THE SUPREME FLORENCE BALLARD

Excellent soul compilation of Flo's post - Supreme's recordings for ABC in 1968, rounded off by 4x 1961 Supremes tracks where she took lead vocals. Ballard was by far the best singer in the Supremes (Mary Wilson was no slouch either) - sadly Diana Ross was given the star treatment, and her weaker voice was the usual lead. (She was shagging Motown boss Berry Gordy so can you guess why?). Sadly Flo had a troubled life and died in 1976 from cardiac arrest.

More hassles right now - my main PC has a virus (hoping to have it reloaded Sunday...). Also Virgin broadband is down & I used my Tmobile monthly allowance in 2 hours !!! Currently @ me Dad's (20 miles each way) which is too much bother so please let the computer get fixed by the end of the weekend...

  1. This is a treat - a new side of the Supremes. By the way, made a very small donation (sorry, w/o job) to your very great blog. Thanks for these intriguing postings.
