Susaye Greene, the final singer to join the Supremes in the mid-'70s, will release her debut solo album, "No Fear Here," on her own Zed Records label (not to be confused with the infamous Long Beach, Calif., punk record store and label). Described as "running the gamut from dance and rousing pop to alternative and R&B/soul, the set will be made available initially via the Internet, and later through a retail distribution partner to be announced soon. "I'm not just a one-genre singer," Greene said in a statement. "I want to impress upon people that there are all kinds of music to enjoy. And new and old Supremes' fans from around the world have been E-mailing me about wanting new music. So I decided to make this album." Greene -- who was a member of Ray Charles' back up singers, the Raeletts, and Stevie Wonder's backup group, Wonderlove, before replacing Cindy Birdsong in the Supremes -- appeared on the final two Supremes albums, "High Energy" and "Mary, Scherrie, and Susaye," before Motown retired the group's name following Mary Wilson's exit in 1977.
