Overview

The Supremes at the Copa suffers from its inclusion of numerous standards that predate rock & roll, likely in an attempt to appeal to the New York show's conservative audience. Compared to the group's own signature tunes and a medley of Sam Cooke songs, these others seem to fall very flat. Even the audience seems to react more enthusiastically to the opening strains of "Baby Love" and "Come See About Me." After listening to this recording, it becomes clear that they would have been crazy not to -- in this live setting the tunes take on an added ferocity and highlight the astounding songwriting and musicianship that were so central to Motown's success.

Disappointing. I expected somthing different. It's not the upbeat note they are known for: more traditional and flat/boring. There are a couple songs worth listening to again but not the whole CD. songs worth listening to again but not the whole CD.
