Not worth the money

"When the Supremes brought out the album A Little Bit Of Liverpool at the height of the British Invasion, I like many other teens of that time would buy anything that resembled the music of the Beatles, Dave Clark Five and so on. I was also a huge Supemes fan, so I bought the album. Although, nowhere near the quality of the originals or other Supreme's albums, I still enjoyed it. The record is now old and full of pops and cracks and so on. When I seen this CD which also included a copy of an album TCB which was a recording of a live perfomrance by the Supremes and the Temptations, I thought what the heck and bought it.
What a waste of money. The Little Bit Of Liverpool is the worst sounding CD I have ever purchased. It seems no effort was made to even make the CD sound good. Maybe, they just took an old tape and slapped it onto the CD without doing anything to enhance the sound. It is so bad, that I would prefer to listen to my old album, at least it has some bass. As far as the other album, TCB, it is not quite as bad considering it is a live performance, but the selection of music and the performance are below the standards a person would expect from two major groups.
My main complaint with this CD is not necessarily the material, it is the sound. The Motown Sound as I remember was based on a great instrumental background of driving drums, guitars, horns and so on. This is lacking competely in the CD. I think the engineering is poorly done and so I would not recomment this CD or any of the others in the series. Better to listen to the old album than this crap. It is easier on the ears."

"I remember so vivdly watching Diana Ross and the Supremes with the Temptations doing their first television special together called "T.C.B." (Takin' Care of Business). I was only 16 years old back then. Now I am 49 years young and still enjoy playing this TV soundtrack with its excellent CD sound quality. Diana's stirring dialogue in the song "Somewhere" is so heart-wrenching. As for the album "A Bit of Liverpool", it is not one of my favorites, but there are some great songs from the British Invasion here. Diana, Mary and Florence do them justice. This is also a must for any die-hard Supremes fan!"

"first up let me say it's really a great thing that their putting two albums on to one great cd.as rare as a bit of liverpoole is,it's very nice to find that rare recording by the fab supremes,but tcb was the show of all events that year.the girls were fab as usual with their one liners & medley of hits.the pure elegance will always be remembered as the grand ole days.but i have to say the main show stopper was in fact,when paul williams of the temptin' temptations sang lead on the classic,for once in my life.nobody will ever top that performance!then on to the grand finale of the impossible dream,with both groups callaborating together for one unforgettable show!just fabulous!everyone should see & hear this!!the soul philosopher,joey hoffman 52757"
