In November 1969, Motown announced the split of Diana Ross and the Supremes. In 1970 both the Supremes and Diana Ross had two albums apiece; all four were good, much better than the concluding albums of Ross and the Supremes together.

They both recorded "Come Together" in 1970 (yes, apart they recorded "Come Together").

"Come Together" by the Supremes was on New Ways but Love Stays (with 1970 hair).

"Come Together" by Diana Ross was on Everything Is Everything.

Those are both better, and weirder, and longer, than I expected. I think I prefer the Supremes version, but I do like the outro jam in Diana's version. I wonder how much overlap there was in musical personnel?

I'll bet a lot.

It wouldn't surprise me to learn that the same studio band cut both versions in the same day.
