Motown Does It Again!!!

"Another antholgy album!! The music is fresh as usual(but come on) how many more albums or collections do we need Baby Love on!! I love the Supremes but dislike what Motown is doing to them. Give us the original albums on CD. Release one or two a year bring the Supremes back to the top!!"
DIANA ROSS AT HER SPARKLING BEST!

"I am 21 years old and love hip, modern, pumping R and B music and have been in awe of Diana Ross for many years now even though these recordings were mostly made before i was even born but these recordings have a timeless appeal and is an important contribution to the history of soul/R and B. Her modern recordings are still unique but its these fine classics that she will be best remebered for. There are now so many compilations featuring Diana Ross and the Supremes best work that i think its time now for Motown to re release some of her origanal albums and let the younger generation appreciate this special ladys undoubted talents. Albums that i have such as DIANA ROSS 1970, SURRENDER 1971, DIANA ROSS 1976, BABY ITS ME 1977 and ROSS are just perfect examples that should be re released on CD as these represent her versatality as an artist, plus manyof the albums she did with The Supremes. This is however an excellent compilation to have if you don't already have these classics. It offers a vast range of The Supremes hits with Diana Ross which includes YOU CAN'T HURRY LOVE, STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE, THE HAPPENING, REFLECTIONS, LOVE CHILD and SOME DAY WE'LL BE TOGETHER all of which possess a great, infectious beat with Diana Ross' vocals sparkling and emotionally charged. These are just a handful of the classics featured on this compilation. The album also represents a great selection of The Supremes post Ross when lead vocal duties were taken over by the talented Jean Terrell where they scored more classics with UP THE LADDER TO THE ROOF, STONED LOVE, FLOY JOY, AUTOMATICALLY SUNSHINE and NATHAN JONES all of which can be found on here. It also inevitably gives an airing to Diana Ross' most magical years with Motown between 1970 to 1981 which includes the triumphant AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH, the beautifully smooth and soulful TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING, sultry disco classics UPSIDE DOWN, I'M COMING OUT, and LOVE HANGOVER as well as magnificent ballards such as the powerful Michael Masser track ITS MY TURN, ENDLESS LOVE with Lionel Richie, YOU ARE EVERYTHING with Marvin Gaye and THEME FROM MAHOGANY (DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO). Classic after classic, performances truly stunning and the music charged with fire and soul. EXCELLENT!!! So if you dont already have these classics - buy it!!!!! An important part of the twentieth centurys music. Remarkable! Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!!"

"Geeze, this thing has 'em all, you might think...problem is, without "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart" why bother! Wouldn't it be *brilliant* of the folks @ Motown (there is still a Motown, isn't there?) to remaster and reissue all the LPs from the "golden age", 1964-70? Seems like good business..."
