I wanted to make a page for this iconic group. I apologize if there is a topic already created. Ive read 85 million records from a few on here. I think its very disrespectful for TLC to constantly brag about being the top selling female group when its not even true. It was also disrespectful for the World Music Awards to call DC the best selling female group. The Spice Girls are probably above both TLC and DC.

Top 10 Girl Groups Of All Time

NOTE: This ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart through the tally dated July 22, 2017. Artists are ranked based on an inverse point system, with a song's weeks at No. 1 on the weekly Hot 100 chart earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Each act's collected titles that charted over the course of their career were aggregated to determine the final ranking. To ensure equitable representation of the biggest hits from each era, certain time frames were weighted to account for the difference between turnover rates from those years.

1. The Supremes

Aside from being the most successful girl group of all time, the Supremes are among the most popular musical artists ever, with Diana Ross and co.'s songs sounding as timeless as ever. "Baby Love," "Stop! In The Name Of Love," "Come See About Me," "You Keep Me Hangin' On," "Where Did Our Love Go"… the list of Motown classics goes on and on, and although there have been many girl group smashes in the decades since the Supremes ruled the Billboard charts, no collective has yet to challenge their, for lack of a better word, supremacy.

‘Where Did Our Love Go‘ is the second studio album by Motown singing group The Supremes, released in 1964. The album includes several of the group’s singles and B-sides from 1963 and 1964. Included are the group’s first Billboard Pop Singles number-one hits, “Where Did Our Love Go“, “Baby Love“, and “Come See About Me“, as well as their first Top 40 hit, “When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes“, and the singles “A Breathtaking Guy“ and “Run, Run, Run“.

With the release of this album, The Supremes became the first act in Billboard magazine history to have three number-one hits from the same album.

It was also, at the time, the highest-ranking album by an all-female group. It remained in the #2 position for 4 consecutive weeks in January 1965, having been shut out of the top spot by the Beatles’ blockbuster Beatles ’65 album.

Of the 12 tracks featured from the album, two were written by Smokey Robinson. Eight songs, including the Supremes three number one singles, were written by (what would be) Motown’s greatest song-writing, hit making trio, Holland-Dozier-Holland.

Where Did Our Love Go remained on the Billboard album chart for an unprecedented 89 weeks. According to Motown data, the album ultimately sold over 3,000,000 copies. This album was also the first ever number one album on Billboard’s R&B album chart in January 1965. (Source: Wikipedia; All-Music)

1964 was The Supremes' breakout year, as the Motown legends landed their first three Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s: "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love" and, on this date, "Come See About Me."

Supremes ‘Holland-Dozier-Holland’ Expanded Edition
http://bestclassicbands.com/supremes-ho ... e-4-30-18/
by Best Classic Bands Staff

On June 15, in anticipation of the upcoming 60th anniversary of Motown and inspired by the album’s own recent 51st anniversary, Motown/UMe is releasing a 2-CD Expanded Edition of The Supremes’ 10th studio album, The Supremes Sing Holland-Dozier-Holland. The set includes 52 tracks, 28 of which are heard here for the first time via a number of updated mixes and alternate versions, as well as a score of live performances captured at the Copacabana nightclub in New York City in May 1967, the last recorded performance of the original trio: Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard.

The Supremes Sing Holland-Dozier-Holland, originally released in January 1967, was inspired by the production team of Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier and lyricist Edward Holland Jr. The album spawned a pair of #1 singles, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” and “Love Is Here and Now You’re Gone.” The LP also went to #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart, their fourth album to do so up to that point, while peaking at #6 Pop.

The expanded The Supremes Sing Holland-Dozier-Holland includes the original album in both its original mono and stereo mixes—with the mono album on CD for the first time—plus several rare and new mixes created exclusively for this expanded edition, including alternate versions and alternate mixes of the hits; the original film version of the #1 hit “The Happening,” which was re-cut for the single version; a version of “Love Is Here and Now You’re Gone” with a vocal previously available only on a Japanese release; a once-in-a-lifetime “duet” version of “You’re Gone (But Always In My Heart),” that includes lead vocals by Diana Ross and Gladys Knight; and a Motown mashup of the H-D-H classics “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” and “Where Did Our Love Go.”

Rounding out this collection is a rare recording from the Copacabana in New York, in May 1967, one of the last performances of the group with Florence Ballard. Also included in the package is a 32-page booklet with rare and never-before-seen photos plus an interview with Lamont Dozier. Also included is a bonus 24-page booklet that recreates the Supremes’ 1967 souvenir tour booklet.
