9781851775521: The Story of the Supremes

A dazzling celebration of one of the most successful musical groups of the sixties, The Story of the Supremes presents the incredible wardrobe that created the group’s unmistakable style and the billboards, posters, and photographs that made it timeless.

 

From their beginnings as The Primettes to the height of their glamour and fame in the seventies, The Supremes’ career has been nothing short of remarkable. Here, acclaimed music journalist Daryl Easlea traces the history of a group that was second only to the Beatles in number-one hits and whose success story helped change racial perceptions during the civil rights movement. A joyful tribute to the queens of Motown, The Story of The Supremes is a magnificent collection of dresses worn by Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and of course, Diana Ross, in concert, on television, and on the iconic album covers that defined an era of music.
