Mary Wilson is feeling pretty Supreme these days. Wilson, one of the original members of the Supremes, has been steadily performing classics by the legendary female R&B singers and other songs since the group (by then without Diana Ross) disbanded in 1977. But the spotlight has been shining more brightly on the singer in the wake of the furor over the doomed Supremes tour that was supposed to reunite Wilson and Cindy Birdsong with Ross.

It's easy to sample on CD the music of four of the five artists who will be inducted Wednesday into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: the Beach Boys, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Supremes. However, there is currently only one CD devoted to the fifth inductee, the Drifters--and that CD ("The Drifters' Golden Years") features only the post-1958 work of the classic R & B vocal group. That leaves unavailable on CD the Drifters' earlier, hugely influential tracks.

Where did their love go? In its concept stages, the reunion tour of the Supremes was seen as a sparkling opportunity to reassemble the most celebrated girl group in pop history. They would wear those dresses again, sing those songs again, and, they just knew, they would fill all those arenas again. Instead, the "Return to Love" tour is a supreme flop, pronounced dead in mid-tour on Monday by its biggest star.
