51 Years Ago Today: It was the 24th of July, 1967, when Motown Records released the song “Reflections.” After this song was recorded, the group’s name was changed to Diana Ross and the Supremes, something the other Supremes were not happy about. This was their first song to be released under that name.
This is one of the songs released during the Summer of Love, when the Vietnam War was raging. It was an appropriate choice for the theme song of the TV series China Beach, which was set in Vietnam during the war. The series ran on ABC from 1988-1991.
