    Biography :

    The "New England" Supremes were a bunch high school kids who used to hang out near the Supreme Cleaners in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The Group consisted of Alex Rocker, Boyce Foster, William Perry, Ralph Murphy, Peter Lane and Javan Foster. In 1956, they waxed "Could This Be You " b/w "Margie" at Boston's Ace Studios. Ralph Murphy brought along his Uncle Lee - who at thirty was the old man of the group - to handle the Bass vocal chores. A handful of copies were pressed on the Kitten Label by local entrepreneur James Goren. It's unlikely that many escaped the immediate area. most of the Supremes disappeared from music first, and Lawrence second, wich is unfortunate for fans of their superb effort.

    Whenever I hear this song I think of this story. One day years ago I was loading a Roadway truck at Malden Mills in Lawrence. It was in the 80's.I loved singing Doo-wop's while I worked. I started singing this song in the trailer. The driver said " Wow,you know that song? "My name is Boyce Foster, I wrote it.He was a great guy. He invited me to his house a couple of weeks later to meet some of the Supremes. We sang all night. I think he passed away this year. We also met at some of Little Walter's doo wopp shows at the Hampton Beach Casino.
