“Flo Ballard’s remarkable story is a personal Greek tragedy. In his wonderful The Lost Supreme, Peter Benjaminson tells it masterfully, with all the drama and empathy her life deserves. In Benjaminson’s talented hands, Flo Ballard earns the lasting stardom she was deprived of in life." —Gerald Posner, author, Motown: Music, Money, Sex, and Power
“Get to know the real Flo, from the beginning to the end. A must read.” —Otis Williams, the Temptations
“Peter Benjaminson has done a stellar job in capturing [Florence Ballard] and telling her story. Florence deserved a biographer with the skill and talent of Benjaminson. If this book were a record, it would top the charts.” —Al Abrams, publicity director, Motown Records, 1964–1966
“Provides details Ballard wouldn’t or couldn’t discuss.” —Onion
The Lost Supreme tells the real story of what happened to Florence Ballard.
