3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing DVD September 27, 2012
Ross, Diana - Paris 1968

This is not the complete original show ... but I guess its better to have something than nothing. However for fans like me who have seen the original concert in bootleg form ... several questions come up immediately:

1) Why is there a 1970's Mahogany photo of a solo Ross on the cover?
2) What happened to the interview when the girls tell the host their ages (only 23 years old, believe it or not)and Ross speaks to him in French and talks about Tamla Motown?
3) What's up with the choppy "MTV" video editing at the end of each song?

And the biggest question of all... what's really the point of releasing historical archival footage if it's going to be altered?

All in all, its quite disappointing but the remastered sound and visual quality still makes it a keepsake.

This is a compilation of the incredibly successful European tour in 1968 of Diana Ross and The Supremes that produced the Top Ten (#6) ranked "Live at London's Talk of the Town" album. That album was remastered in 1994 to superb results. Along with their Stockholm date that produced an iconic television special, the ladies astounded The Olympia audiences in Paris as well. So London, Paris and Stockholm stood out as hugely successful dates on this tour. The ladies also taped a television special for France's M6 that was solely for the French audiences. Highlights include a rocking medley of their hits that opened the show, rising above your usually rushed medleys. The Funk Brothers were in their usual top form. Their Broadway leading ladies medley was also superb and different from the "G.I.T." television special.

As was customary for the time, the show was a lightning fast 30 minutes that wowed fans and colleagues like Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger along with French luminaries Johnny Hollyday, Claude Francois and None other than Charlie Chaplin!

The DVD also includes a few rare French television appearances.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off November 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you pay less than a dollar for this, you got your money's worth.
The description states that it's in color - it's not. It's a copy of an old TV appearance in Europe, and a very low copy. On DVD, all low quality aspects are very apparent.
This is not a "live concert" as stated. It's a staged TV show with a studio audience.
All "live" aspects are edited out, such as conversations between songs. Mostly because the host only speaks in French. He even comes out at the end and sings "Reach Out and I'll be there"...in French! He is disturbing! For the humor and historical value of backup dancers in white go-go boots, it's worth the dollar! You have the Supremes in beaded gowns, and then these go-go dancers show up behind them. Just tasteless French TV!

Even for die-hard fans (like me), this is disappointing. Mostly because the description is misleading.
- It's not a concert performance
- It's not in color
- Video quality can't get much lower

5.0 out of 5 stars A STAR IS BORN August 9, 2012
By T.
To the last reviewer stage7, I don't know if I would go so far as to say that without the Supremes there would have never been a DIANA ROSS. I actually think that without DIANA ROSS there would have 'NEVER' been the Supremes. Miss ROSS defined the sound of Motown and took the Supremes straight to number #1 on twelve different occassions. Ross was the only reason the Supremes became as successful as they did. I sometimes wish that Berry Gordy had just pulled Diana from the group before they started in 1960 and just made her a solo act from the start and just let Mary and Florence find a replacement and go do their own thing as the Surpemes so that Ross can stop taking all the blame for everything, because she never really needed them in the first place if you want to know the honest truth. This woman was DESTINED to become a star no matter what. She had the right sound, the right stage presence & charisma that was so captivating to hear and see, and I'm sure she would have made a much better solo act from 1960-1970 long before she actually went solo in 1970.

But with that said I do believe that this DVD should have been titled "Diana Ross and the Supremes" because of the year in which it takes place. Who knows, maybe these are actual never before seen performances of Miss Ross doing something alone as she was preparing for her exit as a solo artist just 2 years after. Nonetheless its hard to make any speculation about this DVD when none of us have actually seen the footage contained within at this point and time. ROSS is definitely a *S.T.A.R* in her own right, but lets not forget that 1968 is during the time of Diana Ross "AND" the Supremes and if they are featured on this DVD as well then I do believe they should also be given the credit.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money. November 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm a HUGE Diana Ross fan an expected so much more from this dvd. First of all it's way to short. It's advertised more as a Diana Ross concert dvd not the Supremes which it really is. Also the footage is of very bad grainy black and white quality and is edited poorly. I was very disappointed, you will be too... don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars for Diana fans only! October 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
Diana is in great form here.So are Mary and Cindy,unfortunately the sound mix is such that M&C can barely be heard.The full verson of Michele is rare as it was often presented as a medley wth Yesturday.Other DVD's feature almost all of these numbers and more from concerts around the same time at other venues.The other videos have better sound,and give better balance of the background parts ,in my opinion.

As always Diana Ross is a stunner but I was expecting a concert and this is clips of performances from TV shoes. Still in all, Miss Ross never fails to please.

Miss Ross and the Supremes are great as usual, but the video quality leaves something to be desired. That said, I'd do it again.

This is not a Diana Ross concert but undoubtedly a Supremes show. The picture quality is not good - the distant shots are bit foggy but the close-ups are ok. Read more
