The Supremes – Where Did Our Love Go (Album Review)


In this week’s post for CultureSonar I discuss a much forgotten 60s gem, The Supremes’ Where Did Our Love Go. I had known the girl-group’s hits for years and they have brought me a lot of joy, but it’s only recently that I sat down and listened to a full album of theirs. The consistency of it took me by surprise and its backstory captivated me even more. Hopefully it will do so for you too:

  2. The sad thing is that the best singer in the group, Florence Ballard was edged out by Diana Ross through her relationship with one of the major producers at tamle motown.

  3. Terrific book on that period – Detroit 67 by Stuart Cosgrove – covers Ballard’s departure from the group, along with the riots, John Sinclair and MC5, and a bunch of other stuff. Well worth reading. Great post! I’m listening to the album right now.

  5. Great article. I have to admit, I’m only familiar with the ‘hits’ via an old compilation tape that my parents had. As much as I love a lot of the songs I’ve heard, I never really thought to look for an album
