|The Supremes chronology|
UK version with alternate title
As an indication of how hot they were at the time, the album just missed the Top 20 in the U.S. peaking at #21. While not quite as prolific as their pop counterparts at that time, The Beatles, The Supremes enjoyed 3 albums charting simultaneously in 1964-65. In an odd promotion strategy, they also performed The Beatles' "Eight Days a Week" on several television shows including Shindig and Hullaboola, though it didn't make the album.
For its release in the UK, the album was titled With Love (From Us To You).
- "How Do You Do It?" (Mitch Murray)
- "A World Without Love" (John Lennon, Paul McCartney)
