The Supremes - "Stoned Love"

With the exception of the anthemic "Someday We'll Be Together," the Supremes first few post-Diana Ross singles arew the best work of their career. And the best? Their funked-up #1 R&B hit, "Stoned Love." Song o' the day? Solid!

Diana's departure freed the remaining Supremes from the Hollard-Dozier-Holland formula, under inspired guidance from produced Frank WIlson. Apparently, Motown chief Barry Gordy hated this song. What the hell was Gordy thinking? The song has more rhythm and blues than the entire Diana Ross solo catalog put together (well, if you exclude the diana LP that she did under the care of Chic's Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards).
