MANNERS

“I guess there are still gentlemen in this world”   A very nice lady said that to me on Tuesday when I held the door open for her as I was exiting and she was entering a bank. Has our society forgotten how to be polite?   I really don’t think so.   As this nice lady...

FLASHBACK: THE SUPREMES RECORD ‘COME SEE ABOUT ME’

It was 53 years ago today (July 13th, 1965) that the Supremes recorded their third Number One hit, “Come See About Me.” The song, like its predecessors “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love,” was written by Motown’s hit-making songwriting and production team Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland.

Motown founder Berry Gordy sprang into action after hearing that a rival record label was issuing their own version of the song by singer Nella Dodds. Motown rush-released the Supremes’ version of “Come See About Me” on October 27th — even before “Baby Love” had reached the Top Ten.

Both versions of the song ultimately entered the Hot 100 the same week, but from the start it was clear that the Supremes had the hit. “Come See About Me” climbed into the Top Ten after four weeks, and two weeks later, on December 19th, 1964, “Come See About Me” hit Number One, staying there for two weeks.

Holland-Dozier-Holland went on to write seven more Number One hits for the Supremes, including “Stop! In The Name Of Love,” “You Can’t Hurry Love,” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.”

Mary Wilson of the Supremes told us that a major part of the group’s success was due to the material Holland-Dozier-Holland hand-crafted for them: “First of all, we were very fortunate to have the writing team of Holland-Dozier-Holland. They wrote some great melodies. And those melodies are even still today still memorable, sing-able and they have lasted just like any great standard.”

Mary Wilson will next perform on July 28th in Trenton, Michigan at “Motown On The River” at Elizabeth Park.

Diana Ross‘ next show is set for September 28th at Hershey, Pennsylvania’s Hershey Theatre.
