Original Caption:

New York -- Mary Wilson, 35, has dropped the "Supremes image" as she calls it, and made her debut as a soloist at the new showroom of the New York-New York Discotheque. It has been a dozen years since the most popular female singing group of the 1960s, The Supremes, broke up. It was never the same for Mary, one of the three original singers. She has appeared over the last few years under the original name--but it no longer had the old magic. Her old friend Diana Ross, the lead singer of The Supremes was there to cheer Mary on. (1979)

I saw Mary Wilson 6 years ago at a Motown revival show. She still looks beautiful and she sang great. I always thought she was a better singer then Diana. Martha Reeves was also on the ticket that night, which made for one unforgettable evening of music.

Interviewed her and saw her perform only a few years ago myself. An absolute darling (to me, anyway) and not a trace of diva in her.

Saw Martha Reeves too (with Jr. Walker to boot) many more years ago. What a fabulous show. Walker slayed everyone (and died not too long afterward).
