The Record Breaking European Tour '68 of Diana Ross and The Supremes
on July 30, 2012
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.
