According to the booklet of “Meet the Supremes Expanded Edition, the concert was recorded on February 28, but an ad shows it was held on Saturday February 29. Was this “Battle of the Star” held both nights?

June 8
According to Mark Ribowsky’s “The Supremes – A Saga…” (p.155), the Supremes joined Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars (CoS) in Cleveland on June 8 but the first concert is actually only on June 26: if there’s any truth in this, what were they doing between June 8 and 26?
According to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” (p.144), the  Caravan of Stars tour begins on Memorial Day (May 25, 1964) through Labor Day (September 7, 1964)
 but the actual dates of the whole CoS summer tour are according to Cash Box (August 29, 1964 issue) and to Billboard (August 22, 1964 issue): June 26 through September 8. Note that the Supremes didn’t participate to the whole CoS summer tour.
The tour is 61 nighters according to Taraborrelli's "Diana" (p. 55) which necessarily includes concerts of that tour the Supremes didn’t do.
June 17
Single “Where Did Our Love Go” released.

Note: According to Billboard (June 13, 1964 issue) the Caravan of Stars is completed and begins to tour on June 26 erroneously in Boston.

July 10-16
Erroneous dates for an engagement at the Riptide Night Club in Wildwood (NJ) – those dates come from the reproduction of a poster circulating on the web and eBay. This poster is a fake one and the photo of the Supremes on it was taken in 1965. This engagement is incompatible with the Caravan of Stars tour.  
Nevertheless, several websites about Wildwood and the Riptide nightclub refers to the Supremes receiving $3,500 for a ten days gig at the Riptide (the poster indicates a 7 days engagement) and two shows per evening in 1964. This suggests that such an engagement might have occurred but then much later than July 1964: indeed, why would the Supremes have been paid such an amount before they had any real hit? (“Where Did Our Love Go” only appeared on the charts at that time – on July 11 it was at #77). No record of such an engagement in 1964 has been found yet. 
However, the most probable hypothesis is that those websites might confuse the year of this engagement with the ten days engagement that occurred a year later from July 9 to 18, 1965 which is also advertised in Billboard (July 3, 1965 issue), when the Supremes already had five number one hits.

(July – August)
Some CoS concerts are listed in Cash Box (August 15, 1964 issue), in an article about gross reports but without giving any precise dates for those concerts. All concerts from this list that are already listed on this page were concerts in July, but some others haven’t been precisely dated yet:  
- Raleigh in North Carolina (maybe on July 22),  
- Virginia Beach in VA,  
- Winston Salem in N.C.,  
- Dayton in Ohio initially at the Montgomery Fairgrounds but relocated in an auditorium because of the rain,  
- in Ohio city, (the CoS later returned to Ohio on September 6 at the Municipal Auditorium with Bobby Ridell and Johnny Tillotson as headliners, and on September 7 in Columbus for the Ohio State Fair but without the Supremes).
 
Note that the CoS returned to some of those locations for the 1964 winter tour. 
- the Caravan of Stars stopped 3 days at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City (NJ) in 1964 (exact dates unkown).

Aug 7 – Sept 8
Literature erroneously states that the Supremes left the Caravan of Star in early September. Actually, the Supremes left the tour much sooner and their last concert for the CoS tour was between August 2 and 6 (even though the last concert of the CoS  summer tour was only on September 8).
More on this: click below.
The Supremes are not billed anymore on the ads and posters of the Caravan of Stars starting August 7 to the end of the tour in September, although they were for the previous shows. In July “Where Did Our Love Go” was climbing the charts (it reached the top position on August 22) and the Supremes began to be really famous. Needless to say that if they still were in the tour, it’s clearly not logical not to put them on any ad. The Supremes are also erroneously credited as being part of the summer tour after August 6 on the blog http://rnrhistorian.blogspot.fr. Two other facts tend to prove that the Supremes left the Caravan of Stars much earlier than September: 
- I have an acetate of live recordings of the Supremes at the Twenty Grand dated August 7, 1964. 
- the booklet of “Where Did Our Love Go: 40th Anniversary Edition” states that the Supremes returned to Detroit in August and performed at the Twenty Grand.
 
The Supremes rejoined the Caravan of Stars for its winter tour on November 13. 

August 7
- Concert at the Twenty Grand (Detroit) (also with Willie Tyler & Lester as opening act).

Note: the Supremes had to be replaced by Kim Weston and the Andantes for a few days during the engagement at the Twenty Grand because of sore throats and fatigue.
August 21
Interview in the afternoon at the Daily Press office in Detroit (article in the Detroit Free Press, August 23, 1964). In this article, Mary Wilson tells: “We have sung at benefits for older people and have even performed in prisons”.
The date of the interview is guessed according to the date of the newspaper and the fact the author of the article writes “…arrived at the Daily Press office Friday afternoon during a brief stay in their home town.” But it could also have occurred on August 7 or 14.
The odd thing about this article is that it doesn’t evoke their engagement at the Twenty Grand.
August 22
The single “Where Did Our Love Go” hits #1 on pop charts.
August 31
LP “Where Did Our Love Go” (mono version) released. It reached # 2 on pop charts and #1 on R&B charts.

Canadian TV show “Saturday Date” from Ottawa. Interview of the Supremes during the promotion of “Where Did Our Love Go” but no precise information on date of broadcast. 
( - )
Concert at the Jubilee Pavilion in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
September 4-13
Engagement at the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn, hosted by DJ Murray the K. (5 to 6 shows a day). The Supremes share the bill with Marvin Gaye, the Miracles, Martha & the Vandellas, the Contours, the Temptations, the Searchers, Jay & the Americans, the Dovells, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Newbeats, the Shangri-Las, the Ronettes, Millie Small and Dusty Springfield.  
This engagement is September 4-13 according to the handbill and September 3-13 according to Cashbox (September 26, 1964 issue). It is shortened to an undated week only in the booklet of “Where Did Our Love Go 40th Anniversary Edition”. See also September 12-21.

September 12-21
Erroneous dates for the engagement at the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn, hosted by DJ Murray the K in Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” and “Supreme Glamour”. These dates are erroneous as Dusty Springfield who was also part of this engagement had a tour planned in the US out of New York from September 14 to 19 (her tour was partially cancelled at the last minute because Dusty collapsed in Tulsa on September 14 – Cash Box September 26, 1964). These wrong dates have been reproduced in Ribowsky’s book (p.174). See September 4-13.
September 17
Single “Baby Love” released.
Septmber (-)
The Supremes receive a “Fry’s Shooting Star” award from Jean-Pierre Aumont.
Note:
this award was given by Fry's Chocolates (now Cadbury) as a sponsorship trophy presented to the artist whose hit was climbing fastest up the charts on Radio Luxembourg's top 20 show. The Fry's Shooting Star Award was only in existence for a short period of time, less than 3 years between 1964 and 1966, to promote Cadbury "Crunchie."
This event most probably happened in August or September. The picture below was published in the Detroit Emergency Press in September 27, 1964.

September 18
Concert at the Circle Theater in Indianapolis, IN. The Supremes are part of Jackie "Moms" Mabley and her big all-star show, along with The Impressions and Glady’s Knight & the Pips. Two shows at 8 and 11 p.m.
September 24
Taping of the TV show “Steve Allen Show” in Hollywood. The Supremes perform “Where Did Our Love Go” & “I Am Woman”. They also receive the Billboard N°1 award for “Where Did Our Love Go”. Broadcast on October 7. 
September (-)
TV show “The Lloyd Thaxton Show”.
Exact date unknown but most probably between September 21 and 25 – definitely before the trip to England and in September according to the information in Cash Box, September 26, 1964 issue: “Hollywood… The Supremes in town for local TV and radio appearances”. The Steve Allen Show and the Lloyd Thaxton were both Hollywood TV shows. The Supremes surely performed “Where Did Our Love Go” and/or maybe “Baby Love”. Lloyd Thaxton planned and tried to release DVDs of his show. Unfortunately he passed away in 2008 before this project came to reality. It’s up to his heirs now…!
Sept - October
(Most probably between September 24 and October 5). TV show “9th Street West” (see TVgraphy for more information).
October (-)
Most likely between October 1 & 5: Recording sessions for the LP “A Bit Of Liverpool” in Los Angeles, including the unreleased tracks “I Saw Him Standing There” and “Not Fade Away” (unreleased until the “Lost & Found” cd). 
October 6
- Arrival of the Supremes at London’s airport at 8 a.m. for a ten days tour of radio and TV engagements.
The date of the departure from Detroit is erroneously October 7 in Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” and “Supreme Glamour”, and the duration of the tour is lengthened to two weeks in J. Randy Taraborrelli "Diana Ross: The Unauthorized Biography" p.101, the DVD "Reflections" and Mark Ribowsky "The Supremes A Saga...". The Supremes were actually back in the USA on October 16. 
- The Supremes record for the radio show “Pop Inn”, their first British broadcast, at 1 p.m. 
October 6 (or 7)
(most probably on October 6) The Supremes perform live at the Paris Theatre (at 12 Regent Street in London) “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love”. 
October 7
US: Broadcast of the TV show “Steve Allen Show” (taped on September 24).
October (7-15)
- Gigs at mod clubs on Fleet and Carnaby Streets in London (exact date unknown). 
- Gig at the Ricky Tick Club in Windsor, UK.
October 8
- The Supremes give an interview in their London hotel to the newspaper “Disc” (probably among others). 
- UK TV show “Top Of The Pops” (at 7:30 p.m.). The Supremes perform “Baby Love” in Manchester studio.
This date is according to TV.com and genome.ch.bbc.co.uk. The newspaper Melody Maker (October 3, 1964 issue) dates it on October 7 but “Top of the Pops” was broadcast on Thursdays and October 7 is a Wednesday.

So maybe it was recorded on October 7 if the show wasn’t broadcast live. Another problem is that the song is also listed last on TV.com and the last song on the show was always the current #1 hit. “Baby Love” hasn’t reached the Top 20 yet in the UK charts (and was #1 only on November 28) but “Where Did Our Love Go” was #2 on October 10 (and #6 on October 3). (see also October 15 and the note just below if that was not confusing enough…)
- UK radio show “Top Gear” on BBC (show at 10 p.m.) 
Note : “Top Of The Pops” is supposed to have been recorded in Manchester studio so either this one or “Top Gear” must have been pre-recorded unless the Supreme came back to London by plane (and even if it was the case, the timing was very tight). This adds some credits to the fact that “Top Of The Pops” could have been pre-recorded on October 7 as suggested in Melody Maker.
October 9
- UK TV show “Ready Steady, Go!”. The Supremes perform “Baby Love” and “When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes”. 
- Gig at the Flamingo Club (night club on Wardour Street in Soho, London). 
October 10
- Motown party at the EMI building in London where Berry Gordy and the Supremes meet the Tamla-Motown Appreciation Society. The Supremes perform “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love”. 
- UK TV show “Open House”.
- Appearance on the Radio Luxembourg show “Friday Spectacular”, probably recorded between October 8 and 10 in the Radio Luxembourg studio in London. During this show, the Supremes are presented a “Disc” award for over a quarter million sales of “Where Did Our Love Go” in England by Shaw Taylor.
October 11
October 14
- Arrival in Amsterdam for a one day only stay in the Netherlands organized by Pete Felleman. Press conference at the Schiphol airport.
- The Netherlands (Holland), taping of the TV show “Snip & Snap Revue” at the Carré Theatre in Amsterdam (Koninklijk Theater Carré). The Supremes perform “Baby Love”, “When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes”, “Let Me Go The Right Way”, Where Did Our Love Go”, “Run, Run, Run” (the show was broadcast a Sunday and before Christmas).
October 15
- UK TV show “Top Of The Pops”. The Supremes perform “Baby Love”. This is a repeated performance of October 8 but the DVD “The Supremes – Reflections –The Definitive Performances 1964-1969” states that Jimmy Savile hosted the show, which he did on October 15 but not on October 8 (hosted by Pete Murray). 
This segment was also repeated on the show on October 29, November 12 & 26 and on Christmas Eve in “Top Of the Pops ‘64”. 
- The Supremes meet Paul McCartney and Ringo Star, members of the Beatles, at the Ad Lib Club in Birmingham (this might be in conflict the TV show in Bruxelles - see below)
- (supposedly on October 15:) The Supremes record a TV show in Brussels (Belgium). According to Billboard the Supremes flew back to the USA from Belgium, so this show was probably recorded on October 15.
- The Supremes leave the UK according to articles in UK newspapers (Melody Maker and Disc, both October 17, 1964 issues) – see also October 17.
According to Billboard (October 24, 1964 issue), the Supremes flew back to the U.S. from Belgium. Note that according to Disc (October 17, 1964 issue), the Supremes “go back to America on Sunday” (Sunday, October 18) which would mean that the Supremes spent October 16 and 17 in Belgium, but in another article on the same page they write they “flew back to America on Tuesday”! These are unlikely as they were in Chicago on October 16.
October 16
- LP “A Bit Of Liverpool” released (recorded in October and released in November according to the booklet of “Lost & Found”).
- Closing of the Music Operators of America (MOA) convention with the banquet held at the Terrace Casino of the Morrison Hotel in Chicago and a show featuring the Supremes, Tony Bennett, Joe Williams, the Headliners, Sue Charles Dancers, Li’l Wally and the Harmony Boys, Ray & Roman Dance Team, the Four Tops, the Kim Sisters, Willie Restum, Junior & the Classics, Li’l Peggy March, the Back Porch Majority and the Frank York Orchestra.  
The Supremes are also presented a golden disc for “Where Did Our Love Go". 
Note:
in his autobiography “To Be Loved” (p. 205), Berry Gordy refers to a distributors convention held in San Francisco while “Come See About Me” was climbing in the charts. The anecdote is about a record store owner wanting the Supremes to sign autographs at his store. Before being #1, “Come See About Me” was in Billboard’s charts from November 14 to December 12, precisely while the Supremes were on the Caravan of Stars Winter Tour (November 13 to December 6 which is followed by recording sessions at least until December 14). Berry Gordy probably refers to the MOA convention and mistook its location.  
October 17
UK TV show “Thank Your Lucky Star” at 5:50 p.m.
This TV show was pre-recorded between October 7 & 15, otherwise it’s not compatible with the information given in the UK newspapers (see October 15), and the COA convention on October 16 in Chicago.
It is also probably erroneously announced on October 25 in Melody Maker (October 3, 1964 issue) : this show was broadcast on Saturdays and October 25 is a Sunday. 
October 24
Airdate of the radio show “Saturday Club” (recorded between October 8 & 15)  (Melody Maker, October 3, 1964 issue, gives October 17 as possible broadcast date but they are not on the program this day according to http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk).
October 25
Most probably an erroneous date of broadcast of “Thank Your Lucky Star” (see October 17).
October 27
Single “Come See About Me” released.
October 28 & 29
Recording of the “Teenage Awards Music International” (T.A.M.I.) (aka “Teen Age Music International” in some press articles) Show at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, CA, for theaters. The Supremes perform 4 songs (see TVgraphy). Two nighttime concerts and one afternoon show.
Note:
This is erroneously dated October 26 by Ribowsky in "The Supremes A saga...", October 27 and 28 in Cash Box (Oct 24 issue). October 28 and 29 is according to www.setlist.fm & the back cover of the DVD “The Supremes – Reflections – The Definitive Performances 1964-1969” and an article in the Los Angeles Times, (November 1st, 1964 issue). Mary Wilson dates it on October 24 which might be the arrival of the Supremes in LA. The producers added the second day to shoot both shows for theatrical release (see also November 14 & December 26 & 29 for release dates in the USA; also released in Europe - see April 1965).
October 30

CoS at the Cambria County War Memorial Auditorium, Johnstown, PA (show at 7:30 p.m.).

December (-)
The Supremes spend the first part of the month recording. They overdub vocals for “Beach Ball” and “Surfer Boy”. Tracks are cut for the album “More Hits By The Supremes”. Motown finishes tracks for “The Supremes Sing Country, Western and Pop”.
December 9
Lead vocals on "Any Girl In Love (Know What I’m Going Through)”.
December 10
Song “Surfer Boy” is recorded (track & vocals?).
December 12
Song “Beach Ball” is recorded (track & vocals?) (working title: “Bikini Party”). 
December 14
Vocals on “Come Into My Palace” (see also December 21).
December 16
Recording session for “Take Me Where You Go” according to Mary Wilson in “Dreamgirl”. This is the recording of the track and not the vocals as most of Wilson’s information concerns the tracks and is confirmed in the booklet of “More Hits by the Supremes – Expanded”. See January 13, 1965. 
December (-)
The Supremes sign for their first motion picture roles in “Beach Ball” in Hollywood. While in town, the Supremes are feted at a cocktail party at the Brown Derby (see December 19).
Note:
this is according to Cash Box, December 26, 1964 issue, and because of the Brown Derby event, it would situate the signature approximately around December 15-19. But the recording of the tracks (or vocals) of “Beach Ball” & “Surfer Ball” respectively on December 10 & 12, prior to the signing, is not logical unless the Supremes were in Hollywood during a much longer period and/or even recorded some of the songs (from December 9 to 14) in Hollywood instead of Detroit.
December 19
- “Come See About Me” hits #1 on pop charts.
- The Supremes receive gold records for their hits from Bob Cobb at the Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. During the event, Lloyd Thaxton called to ask the Supremes to appear on his show already under way.
- TV show “Lloyd Thaxton show”. The Supremes as surprise guests perform “Come See About Me” the day the song reached #1.
December 21
Second vocals session for “Come Into My Palace” (see also December 14).
December (20-24)
Motown's annual Christmas Party at the Greystone Ballroom in Detroit.
December 25
The day before the Supremes fly to New York they perform at the Fox Theater in Detroit as part of the Motortown Revue.
Note 1:
Four shows a day, shows at 1:30 p.m., 5 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m. on December 26 and at 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 10:15 p.m. on December 27 but those dates are without the Supremes. The shows (or those on December 29-31) are recorded and some Supremes songs were finally released on the bonus CD of the Supremes Box Set (2000).
Note 2:
this is mistaken with the Fox Theater in Brooklyn in Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” and Tony Turner’s “All That Glittered” (p.22) or with the September 4-13 engagement. 
December 26
- The Supremes fly to New York for the Ed Sullivan show which includes two days of rehearsal. They stay at the Warwick Hotel.
- see comment on December 27 & 28 about the Fox Theater.
December 27
- TV show “Ed Sullivan Show” (NY). The Supremes perform “Come See About Me” – filmed in b&w but the show is later colorized with a wrong color for their dresses which were originally light blue and not pink as on the colorized clip.
Note 1:
The only copy of those dresses remaining in Mary Wilson collection is a pink copy. In her autobiography “Dreamgirl”, Mary Wilson writes (p.160) that the Supremes were the “only act he (Ed Sullivan) let keep the special gowns from the production numbers”. That was certainly not the case for their first Ed Sullivan appearance and therefore the blue copy of the dress probably disappeared and only the pink copy (if it’s the same gown) could be exposed during Mary Wilson’s gowns exhibits.
Note 2:
This TV show is erroneously dated on December 26 in George "Where Did Our Love Go - the Rise & Fall of the Motown Sound" and in Ribowsky's "The Supremes, A Saga...", and on December 24 in Taraborrelli’s "Diana" (p.57).
Note 3: the Supremes are billed on the ads for the Motortown Revue at the Fox Theater in Detroit in the Detroit Free Press (December 26 & 27, 1964 issues): the ads are erroneous and must have not been changed for their few days absence of the Motortown Revue engagement due to the rehearsals and the taping of the Ed Sullivan Show.
December 28
The Supremes are advertised as an “in person” act for the Fox Theater shows of that day in the Detroit Free Press (this day issue). But depending on their returning flight from New York, their appearance at some or any of these shows (4 shows a day) is unsure and the ad can be erroneous as were the ones issued on December 26 and 27. According to the booklet of “More Hits By The Supremes – Expanded”, they performed only from December 29 to 31.
December 29-31
The Supremes perform at the Fox Theater in Detroit as part of the Motortown Revue.  Shows at 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 10:15 p.m. on December 29 & 30 and at 1:30 p.m., 5 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 11:30 p.m. on December 31.
