What's In A Name?
I intended to post one of Motown's earliest tracks that would be labelled as psychedelic soul, Reflections, however when I played the track on Saturday I flipped it over and after listening decided that the b-side was the one to post. This single was significant in more ways than one. Not only was this the first hit of this new sub-genre bringing the record label bang up to date, it was also the first release to be released as Diana Ross and the Supremes and sadly also the last recording of the trio to feature Florence Ballard. The struggle within the group is detailed in depth in Stuart Cosgrove's excellent book Detroit 67.
