Spain: taping of the TV show “Tele-Ritmo” (TV show in Madrid), broadcast on January 30. January 17 is according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” and January 19 according to Billboard (February 3, 1968 issue) - a taping on January 19 would be in conflict with the Bamby Awards ceremony in Munich.

  Two weeks engagement at the Copacabana in New York (2 shows nightly at 8 and 12 p.m. and 3 shows on Saturday at 8 p.m., 11 p.m. and 2 a.m.).  
Ribowsky's book (“A Saga...”, p.326) erroneously states the Supremes are supposed to open their engagement on April 4.  Partially cancelled/postponed: see also April 4 and May 4. 
April 4
- Recording session for “Will This Be The Day” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but according to the CDs “50th Anniversary The Singles Collection” it concerns only the recording of the track and not the vocal (see June 18 for vocal session).

April 13-21
Engagement at the Eden Roc (in Cafe Pompeii) in Miami, FL, shows at 9 p.m. and midnight.
The opening date for this engagement is erroneously April 12 in most of the earlier newspapers (like the Miami News, February 9, 1968 issue; the Philadelphia Enquirer, December 17, 1967 issue). It's April 13 on an ad in the Miami News (April 10, 1968 issue) and in an article in the Fort Lauderdale News (April 12, 1968 issue). The February 9 issue of the Miami News also announces the end of the engagement on April 24, which would be in conflict with the engagement at the Latin Casino (April 22 to May 4), and most of the other newspapers give April 21 as closing date.
April 15
Recording session for “Some Things You Never Get Used To” according to the Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but the booklet of the CDs “50th Anniversary The Singles Collection” confirms it’s only the recording of the track
April 20
- Sweden: broadcast of the concert filmed at Berns in Stockholm (recorded between February 5 and 11).
April 22 – May 4
Engagement at the Latin Casino, Cherry Hill, NJ, 2 shows nightly.   
Note
that in an early ad in the Courier-Post (August 10, 1967 issue), the engagement is advertised from April 22 through May 5: actually the line-up from March through May from this early Latin Casino ad changed considerably compared to the actual line-up in 1968 and the Supremes engagement is shortened by one day.
Moreover, in an article in the Courier-Post (Camden, June 11, 1969 issue), Dave Dushoff, operator of the Latin Casino, states about this engagement: “…Diana had wanted May 5 off to do the Sullivan show…”, so early negotiations in 1967 for a 14 days engagement most probably conducted it to be cut to 13 days. . .

April 24
Recording session for “Touched By The Hand Of Love” (unreleased) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but it’s unlikely a vocal session because of the engagement at the Latin Casino in New Jersey.
April 26
Mayor of Camden Alfred R. Pierce proclaims "Cindy Day" in honor of Camden vocalist Cynthia "Cindy" Birdsong, while performing with Diana Ross and the Supremes in the Latin Casino. Club Magnificent Seven, a social organization headed by Camden Det. Louis Walls, arranged a day of activities: at 10 a.m. Mayor Pierce gives Miss Birdsong a key to the city, at 11 a.m. she visits Camden High School, and the Opportunities Industrialization Center at 11:45 a.m. At 1 p.m. she’s honored at lunch in Kenney's Restaurant.
April 29
Recording sessions for “Hey Hey” (unreleased) and “Honey Babe” (unreleased; according to Mary Wilson but the same title was used for a song in 1963 – see November 25, 1963 and discography for more information) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but it’s unlikely a vocal session because of the engagement at the Latin Casino in New Jersey.
April 30
Recording sessions for “Ain’t I Gonna Win Your Love” (unreleased), “He’s My Sunny Boy” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but it’s unlikely a vocal session because of the engagement at the Latin Casino in New Jersey.
May 4 – ?
- Beginning of the two weeks engagement at the Copacabana in New York that was initially planned on March-April and partially cancelled because of Dr Martin Luther King assassination on April 4. Also with Lewis and Christy on the bill.
Those dates are according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” who gives unsure dates that are in conflict with the engagement at the Latin Casino (which ends on May 4). It’s also in conflict with the benefit concert in Atlanta on May 9. If this engagement is really two weeks long, then it’s also in conflict with the Westbury Music Fair, May 13-18 and the Fisher Theater, May 20-26). Because the Copa engagement was partially completed (from March 28 to April 3), I suspect that the reprise was shorter than two weeks. There were 7 days that were remaining to be done contractually and May 5 through May 12 would fit in the Supremes schedule (except for the benefit concert on May 9).
- A “Hollywood Palace” is referenced in most biographies but it’s off season and it’s only a rebroadcast of the show aired on September 26, 1967 according to TV.com.
May 5
TV show “The Ed Sullivan Show” to salute Irving Berlin’s 80th Birthday.
Note: According to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” and Tony Turner’s “All That Glittered” (p.195), the Supremes performed “Some Things You Never Get Used To” but they actually never performed this song during an Ed Sullivan show. Moreover, the lead vocal for this song was recorded in studio only two days later.
May 7
Lead vocals on “Some Things You Never Get Used To”. Lead and background vocals on “A House Is Not A Home” (also with the Temptations).  
Note:
although Mary and Cindy were in the studio to record the background vocals of “A House Is Not A Home”, they didn’t record the background vocals of “Some Things You Never Get Used To” that were already recorded by the Andantes on April 27. 
May 8
Background vocals on “He’s My Sunny Boy”.
May 9
Benefit concert at the Civic Center in Atlanta organized by Berry Gordy to the Southern Christian Leadership’s Poor People’s Campaign, with Diana Ross & the Supremes, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Chuck Jackson, Yvonne Fair, Mrs. Coretta King, Father James Groppi. Berry Gordy and the Motown artists, together with Mrs. King, unveiled a plaque in the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King. 
The Baltimore Sun, May 8, 1968 issue, and Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, May 9, 1968 issue, announce the benefit concert on May 9, Billboard and Record World, both May 18, 1968 issues, give a report of this event dated on May 9, but it is erroneously held in June according to J. Randy Taraborrelli “Call Her Miss Ross p.194, and June 19 according to Diana Ross in “Secret Of A Sparrow”.

July 8
Background vocals on “Funny Girl”, additional background vocals on “If A Girl Isn’t Pretty”, “I Am Woman”, “Cornet Man”: these additional background vocals are most probably by the Andantes because of the engagement in Las Vegas and according to innuendos in the booklet of “Diana Ross & the Supremes Sing And Perform Funny Girl - Expanded”.
July 10
Additional background vocals on “Don’t Rain On My Parade”, “People”, "His Love Makes Me Beautiful”, “Sadie, Sadie”, “I’m The Greatest Star”: these additional background vocals are most probably by the Andantes because of the engagement in Las Vegas and according to innuendos in the booklet of “Diana Ross & the Supremes Sing And Perform Funny Girl - Expanded”.
July 19

July 23
Press conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York to endorse vice President Hubert Humphrey. 
July 24
Event at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, NY according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl”: is this the press conference they actually held on July 23, or a concert that would be in conflict with the engagement at the Garden State (July 22-27)?
July 25
Recording sessions for “Weak Spot”, “Double Or Nothing”, “Soul Appeal”, “Operation Teamwork” (all unreleased) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but it’s unlikely a vocal session because of the engagement in New Jersey.
July 26
Recording sessions for “It only Happens When Love Is Gone”, “The Girl That Was”, “I Feel Love”, (all unreleased) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but it’s unlikely a vocal session because of the engagement in New Jersey.
She also lists “This Is Where I Came In” for one session (another being on August 2) which is surprising because it’s also the working title of “You Can’t Hurry Love” (recorded in July 1966): is this another song?

July 28
Recording session for “How Long Has The Evening Train Been Gone” and “I Can’t Give Back The Love I Feel For You” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but for the latter it concerns only the track not the vocals (vocals recorded on July 31). It’s most probably also the case for “How Long Has The Evening Train Been Gone” as Mary Wilson mostly gives the recording of the tracks and not the vocals in the itinerary part of her book.

August 5
- Recording session for “You’ve Got The Love” (unreleased) and for I’ll Set You Free” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but they are unlikely vocal sessions because of the concert in Saratoga Springs and the booklet of “Lost & Found” confirms it’s the recording of the track ad not the vocal for “I’ll Set You Free” (see also September 2 & 5).
- Concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY (bill shared with Stevie Wonder and Shorty Long).
August 9
Recording session for “Those Precious Memories” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but the booklet of “Lost & Found” confirms it’s the recording of the track ad not the vocal (see September 17 & October 4).

August 23-24
- Diana Ross, the Supremes and the Temptations arrive in Los Angeles to rehearse and tape the TV show “TCB” at the NBC Burbank studios (broadcast on December 2). Recorded on two days according to the dated script of the show.
According to a Canadian press review of their following engagement (see August 26-28), Diana Ross & the Supremes flew from Hollywood on Monday were they were still taping a TV show on Sunday 25. 
According to Ribowsky (p.342 + p.344) at was a ten days rehearsing and taping but then it’s in conflict with the following engagements).

- Background vocals on “I’ll Try Something New”, “Sweet Inspiration” (see also August 30) (all with the Temptations). Additional background vocals on “The Impossible Dream” (with the Temptations) (see also August 27 & September 10).

September 6
- Recording session for “I Get Lost” (unreleased) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl”. 
- TV Show: “Dick Clark And A Cast Of Thousands”. This show is only referenced in Diana Ross “Secrets Of A Sparrow”. The only other tracks of a show of this name is in some newspapers in 1978, about a program to be aired on Wednesday September 6. It's most probably been mistaken in Diana Ross's book (1968 instead of 1978). The show seems to consist on a promotion of Dick Clark's new series “Dick Clark's Live Wednesday” and on a retrospective on his career and might only contain old video clips or interviews. Diana Ross is not mentionned as participant of the tv show.

December (-)
Most probably early in December (and maybe on the same day as the release of TCB – December 2): release of the LP “Love Child”. Date based on the booklet “Lost & Found” and the fact that the first review of the album is published in the November 30 issue of Billboard. The LP makes also its debuts in the R&B charts during the week ending December 7 (Billboard, December 7, 1968 issue). Less probable released dates are found in books: November 8 according to Mary Wilson and Diana Ross, November 13 according to Ribowsky, or erroneous ones, given that the LP was already in the charts: January 1969 according to Taraborrelli in “Diana” and December 14 in “An Unauthorized Biography”.
December 2

December 6
Recording session for “I’m So Glad I Got Somebody (Like You Around)” (third version) according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but the booklet of “50th Anniversary The Singles Collection” confirms it’s the recording of the track only – see December 28 & 31).

- A “Hollywood Palace” is erroneously listed by Mary Wilson and Diana Ross biographies. The episode broadcast on December 28 is a repeat of the January 21, 1967 episode.

- Lead vocals on “I’m So Glad I Got Somebody (Like You Around)” (version 3) and on “The Young Folks”.
- Recording session for “Are You Sure Love Is The Name Of The Game” and “The Composer” according to Mary Wilson’s “Dreamgirl” but the booklet of “50th Anniversary” confirms it’s the recording of the track ad not the vocals at least for “The Composer” (see December 29).
