Instead of breaking up, let’s do some kissing and making up

Last night I added the following images to the page “Baby Love” and The Supremes in Amsterdam and London, October 1964.

All of the photos were taken during the brief 10-day London tour, which included one day in Amsterdam, by The Supremes in October 1964, in the wake of the international explosion of their hits “Where Did Our Love” and “Baby Love.” The latter became the first #1 hit in the UK by a Motown artist. I’ve no idea why they are sitting beside a Christmas tree in October in some of the photos.

Among the albums seen in the image below are the following:

Baby Love (Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Edward Holland, Jr.)

(below) The Supremes lip-sync to “Baby Love” on an episode of Top of the Pops, originally broadcast on 15 October 1964. It’s the debut UK television appearance by the Supremes. Evidence suggests (see the “Baby Love” page) that the group may have worn the same dresses for the TOTP appearance (possibly taped 7-8 October), a performance at the Carré Theatre in Amsterdam on 14 October, as well as for Manchester Square and Christmas tree photo shoots.

Also, the following image and video were added yesterday to the page Motown: Holland–Dozier–Holland: selected songs, 1965.

Stop! In the Name of Love (Holland–Dozier–Holland)
