Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Turner, currently road manager for the Temptations, tells a sometimes appealing, occasionally tedious story about the glory years of Motown and his association with the Supremes, particularly the late Florence Ballard. At age 12, following a chance encounter with Ballard, Turner was drawn into the lives of the Supremes; for a youngster from Harlem, it was a godsend. He was accepted by the singers and their entourage, becoming a combination mascot and confidant. Unfortunately, much of the book is devoted to Diana Ross-bashing which, while shedding some light on the dynamics of the group and their eventual breakup, is gratuitously mean-spirited. Interesting trivia is included: the recordings of ``Love Child'' and ``Some Day We'll Be Together'' were done by Ross and session singers--the Supremes appeared only on the label. Coauthor Aria ( Misha ) wisely has allowed Turner's street-smart style to remain essentially untouched, which gives the book a fast-paced, vigorous tone. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Befriended at age 12 by Supremes member Florence Ballard, Turner embarked on an odyssey that took him from his Harlem neighborhood into the jet-setting glamour world of one of the most popular black singing groups of all time. In colloquial, gossipy style, he relates numerous tales of his life as an unofficial aide-de-camp to the group, but especially to the talented but ill-starred Ballard. And a sad, depressing story it is. Turner's young eyes and ears took in all the bitter, behind-the-scenes machinations, especially those that brought about the end of Ballard's participation in the group, her plunge into poverty, and her untimely death. Motown mogul Berry Gordy, superstar Diana Ross, and third original member Mary Wilson are covered by anything but glory in this book which, despite a sometimes awkward writing style, will merit consideration by public libraries and comprehensive music collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, 6/1/90; see also Ben Fong-Torres and Dave Marsh's The Motown Album , reviewed in this issue, p. 90.--Ed.-- David M. Turkalo, Social Law Lib., Boston
