Editorial Reviews

The Best Of The Supremes on The Ed Sullivan Show collects 22 of the Supremes' greatest performances, including ones never before available on DVD. Included is the Supremes' very first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in December 1964, showcasing their No. 1 hit "Come See About Me," plus other timeless performances including "You Can't Hurry Love," "Love Child" and "The Happening." And, for the first time on DVD, this collection includes "Up the Ladder to the Roof" which is the only appearance by the "New Supremes" after Diana Ross went on to a solo career. This collection of performances truly showcases why The Supremes are one of Motown's biggest and most beloved acts.

There are no liner notes so here are the original air dates for each of the 13 full length performances included on this excellent DVD. Most include Ed's original intro as well as his shaking hands with the group afterwards. And the good news is there is no extra narration added (previous releases on VHS/DVD included narration).

1. December 27, 1964: Come See About Me. In black & white as originally aired. A previous release used a colorized version of their first appearance on the Sullivan show. All other performances are color.
2. September 25, 1966: You Can't Hurry Love. Flo & Mary add tambourine.
3. May 1, 1966: Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart. Look for Mary's reaction half way through the song to Diana's adlib line ("Go Mary") as they dance.
4. December 4, 1966: My Favorite Things. A holiday fav.
5. May 7, 1967: The Happening. Ed forgets the group's name and introduces them as simply "the girls." Florence Ballard's last time on the program.
6. May 1, 1966: More.
7. September 29, 1968: Love Child. A lip-sync but performed barefoot in street clothes and natural hair. They perform the song live just a few months later (both performances are included in the Motown Gold on the Ed Sullivan Show two DVD set).
8. May 5, 1968: Always.
9. May 11, 1969: You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You. Dedicated to Ed and he even joins the trio during the song. Mary & Cindy add some comedy during the performance.
10. May 11, 1969: No Matter What Sign You Are.
11. December 21, 1969: Hits Medley (ten songs) on final appearance with Diana.
12. March 24, 1968: Forever Came Today.
Bonus:
13. February 15, 1970: Up The Ladder To The Roof. Line up of Jean Terrell, Mary Wilson & Cindy Birdsong.

This is a steal of a deal for the price. I have been waiting forever for this DVD to come out. I remember as a kid watching Diana Ross and The Supremes on The Ed Sullivan Show. They were (still are!) my favorite group and this DVD looks to include some of their best songs and performances. Hopefully we will see more old Motown releases in the near future!

As a Supremes and Motown fan, I could not be more excited about this DVD. I can't wait to re-live their performances of "Baby Love," "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Love Child." So much to love!

Along with that, I'm excited for the bonus of "Up The Ladder To The Roof", which I have never seen before. The Supremes were a class act and I'm very excited to add this DVD to my collection!

In late 2006, the "Reflections" DVD is released and brings us a dozen or so Supremes performances from various sources. Now, Sofa Entertainment brings us this collection of 13 performances from 1964-1970 taken exclusively from The Ed Sullivan Show. We see these fair Motown City maidens morph from doing a demure shimmy in their little fringe dresses in black-and-white to their final performance as a superstar group in gold sweeping caftans before their leader branches off solo.

The video/audio quality is great on all of these performances though some are a little better than others. If you already own the "Reflections" DVD, the only repeats here are "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Love Child" (the 1968 lip-sync version performed sans wigs and makeup). "Come See About Me" is the original black-and-white version (not colorized), as it should be so the purists will be happy.

There are four non-hits/standards including "More" and "Always". We get to witness the girls' stage patter when they dedicate "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You" to Ed.

It's easy to see the group was a class act all the way as they glide around the stage in billowing pink chiffon during "My Favorite Things" or flash their bling and million dollar smiles during the exuberant "The Happening" (where, surprisingly, Mary Wilson occupies center stage). Cindy Birdsong looks positively regal occupying Flo's old place in "Forever Came Today". But they were also human, too. Watch for Mary's split-second reaction to Diana's "Go, Mary" before the dance solo on "Love Is Like an Itching In My Heart". It's as if she's thinking "Excuse me? Girl, WHAT are you doing"?.

This is my first review of anything ever. I, like most have the VHS tape of the Ed Sullivan shows. I have been waiting for this DVD release for, forever. Yes this is incomplete, but hopefully there is a VOL 2 down the road. My VHS tape of these performances is starting to look shoddy after almost 20 yrs. It has always been striking to me to watch diana grow into the diva that she is today while watching these performances. And watching mary turning into a pro while complimenting her...Priceless. Flo..Beautiful!I may not have purchased this if "Always" had not been included(my fav). Wish "the impossible dream" had been included(sublime). Overall i would recommend to all diehards. I have been a fan now for more than 40yrs. I would encourage those who want more DVD releases(TCB)to purchase this
disc to show that there are a lot of us out here that would support such releases.
I understand the media/merchandise play the Beatles and Elvis get. But why not the Supremes. They were just as important!
