Supremes1968album2

Reflections is an album by Diana Ross & the Supremes. It was released on March 25, 1968 by Motown.

It was the first regular studio LP to display the new billing of the group formerly known as "The Supremes."

It contains the singles "Reflections", "In and Out of Love" and "Forever Came Today."

Also included on the album are covers of songs made famous by Martha and the Vandellas ("Love (Makes Me Do Foolish Things)") and The 5th Dimension ("Up, Up and Away").

Also present are songs written by other famous names, including "Bah-Bah-Bah" co-written by Motown songstress Brenda Holloway with her younger sister, Patrice, an original Smokey Robinson composition titled "Then" and "What the World Needs Now Is Love" by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, which Motown planned to release as a single in the spring of 1968, but cancelled.

It also contains a cover of Bobbie Gentry's song "Ode to Billie Joe" (whose original recording kept the single "Reflections" from peaking at the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1967 and it hit #2 on Cashbox.)
