Don't Let The Cover Fool You... But "The Supremes" show why

"This cover is of the original Supremes at The Copa... which, of course, was Diana, Mary and Flo.
The DVD is of Diana, Mary and Cindy, recorded live in concert on 3/4/1968 at Gebouw Amsterdam.
Don't get me wrong,although I have a special fondness for the original Supremes,this is a GREAT show. It has been digitally remastered from the original black and white recording.
Diana opens the set walking down thru the audience towards the stage singing "With A Song In My Heart" while reaching out and touching audience members hands.And this was years before "Reach Out And Touch" was even written! It is a nice mixture of show tunes,a Beatles medley, and of course all of the Supremes standards.They change fabulous gowns several times, and I especiallly love the choreographed verbal interactios between Diana, Mary and Cindy.
Also included is an extra live recording from Carre Amsterdam on 10/14/1964 with "the girls" singing "Baby Love", "When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes",and "Let Me Go The Right Way".
So do yourself a favor, and buy this DVD. You will love it. I have played mine atleast 25 times, and I never grow tired of it!
Happy that I bought it from the UK

"Being a long time fan of the SUPREMES, and, since this DVD isn't available in America and probably never will be, I thought I'd take a chance and purchase it from the UK. I do have a multi region DVD player, as well as conventional NTSC DVD players and I'm happy to report that this DVD plays well on all of my machines. A pirated version of the 68 Amsterdam Concert has been available for years, but this DVD is far SUPERIOR any copy I've seen before. Yes, the concert is in black and white, but so what? It was taped nearly 40 years ago. It could've been digitally re-mastered, but the picture and sound quality is still fantastic and it's obvious that care was taken putting this DVD together. The bonus footage of Diana, Mary and Flo, from 1964, make this worth the price. The 68 concert footage with Diana, Mary and Cindy is essentially the same concert "The Supremes Live at Talk of the Town" that was released on vinyl and CD. It's a real treat to see this footage after hearing the live album for all of these years and it shows what made the SUPREMES so visually exciting. 2004 marked the 40th anniversary of the SUPREMES 1st #1 hit. Sadly, no one noticed, except for Hip-O-Select who re-released Where Did Our Love go with many previously unreleased tracks from that session. Get this DVD before it's gone. Wake up America, we're ignoring one of our national treasures! Besides, I respectfully point out, the SUPREMES were the only real competition the Beatles ever had during that time period, chalking up 12 number one hits and consistantly knocking the Beatles off of the charts. This DVD does show them as they were and why their artistry should be respected. The industry in general, and America in particular should recognize their artistry and respect their cultural contributions. They are, after all, SUPREME!"

"They paved the way for all the others that have since followed.....Diana and The Supremes were elegance, style, class and commerciality....This dvd from Holland, shows them a year before they were to break up as a group.....Having never seen a full supremes concert on dvd, nor any being officially available here in the u.s.a...this makes on hell of a gem to have. I wished though ,that is was in color as most of the visual appeal is lost through the black and white filming.....but considering it's age (shot in 1968 and looks very good in quality) and again it's rarity on dvd, this is an excellent collection to have....."
