A rare live recording of The Supremes at New York City's famous Copacabana nightclub. Excellent liner notes from iSupreme: "This was recorded on the night of the 20th of May, 1967 only a few months before founding member and soprano of the group Florence Ballard was fired. This performance features very entertaining and funny interaction between the members of the group to the great delight of the audience. This performance also includes the infamous little part where Diana Ross boasts ...Thin is in!' and Florence Ballard replies '...and honey, fat is where it's at!' "
Those who know the history of The Supremes and the ultimate fate of Ballard, as well as readers of the recent The Lost Supreme: The Life of Dreamgirl Florence Ballard, should appreciate the significance of Diane's "joke."
