This autobiography recounts the story of the three girls--Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Diana Ross--who built the musical leagacy, the Supremes
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Wilson and her three Detroit high school friends had big dreams when they formed the Primettes in 1959, but it wasn't until Motown's Berry Gordy reduced them to a trio, suggested a name change, and insisted Diana Ross sing lead that things started to happen. By summer 1965, eight months after their first #1 single, the Supremes were Motown's biggest act. Success meant furs, limos, lunches with royalty; also jealousies and friction, especially after the ambitious Ross became the star. Today there is no love lost between Wilson and "old friend" Diana, who is presented as a bitchy, conniving prima donna. Too tame and boringly written to engage non-fans, this may be in demand in public libraries thanks to a heavy publicity campaign. Thomas Jewell, Waltham P.L., Mass.
