Hugely successful female vocal group formed in 1961, after initially after being called The Primettes from 1959 to 1960. Their best-known and most stable lineup was Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson, in which configuration they became Motown's top act of the 1960s, though of that line-up only Wilson remained in the group by the time of the 1970s disco incarnation represented here.

The Supremes changed name in early 1967 to Diana Ross & The Supremes. Motown president Berry Gordy stated that the name change was done so that Motown could demand more money from live bookings, but rumors began to spread of an approaching Diana Ross solo career.

At that time member Florence Ballard had begun drinking and occasionally missing performance and, by June 1967, was replaced by Cindy Birdsong, a member of Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles.

In January 1970, Diana Ross & The Supremes gave their final performance and Ross began her solo career. Jean Terrell replaced Diana as the lead singer and thereby renaming the group back to The Supremes.

Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 (Performer).

Shout out to the last two Supremes efforts (i.e. High Energy and Mary, Scherrie & Susaye). If you're into disco-soul these are amazing. First three cuts on High Energy (the title cut, "Let My Heart.." and "Only You") are killers. "Come Into My Life" and "Love I Never Knew.." from Mary, Scherrie & Susaye bangs (and if your feeling extra gay and cheerful "Let Yourself Go" with it's proto-house rhythm). Recommended!
