January 02, 2014 - Happy New Year!
For first #ThrowBackThursday #TBT of the 2014, we go back 45 years to 1969 and the week ending January 4th....DIANA ROSS had not 1, not 2, not 3 BUT 5, FIVE albums on the Billboard Top LP's chart!!!
#57: Diana Ross & The Supremes - Live at London's Talk of the Town
#55: Diana Ross & The Supremes - Greatest Hits
#48: Diana Ross & The Supremes with The Temptations - TCB, which jumped from 138 the previous week and went on to beat out all these other Supremes' albums, and the very hot Beatles at the time, to reach #1 just 4 weeks later!
#17: Diana Ross & The Supremes - Love Child
#5: Diana Ross & The Supremes Join The Temptations
Later in the year of 1969, Diana Ross left The Supremes to launch a "supremely" successful solo career and is still going strong. Ross went on tour in 2013 and performed at the Hollywood Bowl in August.
