"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

 Meet the Supremes is the debut album by The Supremes, 
released in late 1962 on Motown. The LP includes the group's earliest
 singles: "I Want a Guy", "Buttered Popcorn", "Your Heart Belongs to
 Me" and "Let Me Go the Right Way". The earliest recordings on this
 album, done between fall 1960and fall 1961, feature the Supremes
 as a quartet composed of teenagers Diane Ross, Mary Wilson, 
Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin. Martin left the group
 in early 1962 to start a family, and the other three girls
 continued as a trio. Martin is not pictured on the album 
because of her departure earlier in the year;

MOTOWN RECORDS 1962                                 MT-606 

Released     December 9, 1962
Recorded     1960 - 1962

COVER REISSUE 1965                         MS 606 

MT/MS-606 - Meet the Supremes - Supremes [3/65] The second cover had a 
single picture of the three Supremes together. The cover was bluish white
 with "meet the Supremes" in blue and pink. This album was released in mono
 and stereo in March, 1965 as MT-606 and MS-606, respectively. Same back 
slick was used as with the first version but with square Motown logo, so the
 record jacket back still omits "Let Me Go The Right Way" and lists
 "The Boy That Got Away" incorrectly instead of "Time Changes Things."
 The record label has the correct titles. Label is the 1965 label with red,
 yellow and green-grey lettering in the label name and the star to the left.
