Description
(Finalist for the 2010 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards) With recollections from friends, family, and Motown contemporaries, this group portrait from Phil Spector biographer Mark Ribowsky charts the Supremes' meteoric rise and bitter disintegration. The book sheds light on Diana Ross's relationship with Berry Gordy and her cutthroat rise to top billing in the group, as well as Florence Ballard's corresponding decline. Ribowsky also takes us inside the studio, examining how the group's biggest hits were conceived and recorded on the Motown "assembly line." He considers the place of Motown in an era of cultural upheaval, explaining why Gordy's revolutionary concept of "blacks singing white" was essential to the modern evolution of music—and why not being "black enough" became a fierce denunciation within the black music industry.

"A dishy, insider look at Berry Gordy's making of the Supremes.... Ribowsky nicely intersperses some hindsight reflections by the main players.... This engaging, vivacious account ... energetically and thoroughly underscores the Supremes' significance as one of the first crossover successes."—Publishers Weekly
