It was 48 years ago Saturday (July 13th, 1965) that the Supremes recorded their third Number One hit, “Come See About Me.” The song, like its predecessors “Where Did Our Love Go” and “Baby Love,” was written by Motown’s hit-making songwriting and production team Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland.

Motown founder Berry Gordy sprang into action after hearing that a rival record label was issuing their own version of the song by singer Nella Dodds. Motown rush-released the Supremes’ version of “Come See About Me” on October 27th — even before “Baby Love” had reached the Top Ten.

Both versions of the song ultimately entered the Hot 100 the same week, but from the start it was clear that the Supremes had the hit. “Come See About Me” climbed into the Top Ten after four weeks, and two weeks later, on December 19th, 1964, “Come See About Me” hit Number One, staying there for two weeks.
