Thank you for listening and sharing your enthusiasm about One Record these last six months. It’s been very personally fulfilling but it’s the next six months that are of concern.

Before the Marvelettes, the Vandellas, and the Supremes, it was Bobbie Smith & the Dream Girls who were onstage and on rotation in Detroit. The group’s lead voice and star-power belonged to a teenager named Elma Holman, soon known from the 20 Grand to the Apollo Theatre as Bobbie Smith. The Dream Girls cut nine singles between 1959 and 1962. Bobbie did two more on her own—most notably 1964’s magnificent “Miss Stronghearted”. Th...
