Album Reviews:

Q (Magazine) (p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Backed by horns, ringing hi-hats and tinkling pianos, 'Baby Love' and 'Come See About Me' sound snappy."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's one of the great Motown live albums....[With] Mary Wilson in full voice and Ms. Ross at her most soulful."

The Supremes at the Copa suffers from its inclusion of numerous standards that predate rock & roll, likely in an attempt to appeal to the New York show's conservative audience. Compared to the group's own signature tunes and a medley of Sam Cooke songs, these others seem to fall very flat. Even the audience seems to react more enthusiastically to the opening strains of "Baby Love" and "Come See About Me." After listening to this recording, it becomes clear that they would have been crazy not to -- in this live setting the tunes take on an added ferocity and highlight the astounding songwriting and musicianship that were so central to Motown's success. ~ Brian Egan
