Greatest Hits: Live in Amsterdam is a DVD by The Supremes released in 2006.

Background[edit]

In 1968 Diana Ross and The Supremes (Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong) made a lengthy European tour, playing to capacity audiences at prestigious nightclubs and theatres across the continent. Many of these shows were filmed by the local television stations and broadcast as prime-time viewing. The format of the show changed slightly for each country, but was basically the same as the live LP released later that year, Live at London's Talk of the Town. The concert is a fast-paced mix of the group's biggest hits to date, as well as a collection of showtunes and standards in medley form.

Cindy Birdsong replaced Florence Ballard in summer of 1967, as is featured on the main concert, while Ballard appears on the three bonus tracks
