NOT the real ELGINS

"For people wondering why hits like Darling Baby and Put Yourself In My Place aren't on this collection, well it shouldn't matter, since these are NOT the original recordings and this is NOT the original lineup that featured the fantastic Saundra Edwards.Most of the Elgins original recordings, including all of their singles, were made available on the Belgian label Marginal a few years ago as part of THE ELGINS VS THE MONITORS (another underappreciated Motown group that made some great recordings). Look for that out of print gem or purchase the Big Hits & Hard To Find Classics series (British imports) to get their hit singles (Darling Baby and Heaven Must Have Sent You on Volume 1, Put Yourself In My Place and Stay In My Lonely Arms on Volume 3, the non-hit single It's Been A Long Long Time on Volume 4)."
Lovely lead singer!

"This is a good collection - The Elgins have a fantastic lead singer in Yvonne Allen who has a wonderful, joyous voice, she's truly shining! There are several good songs to discover here - most are, however, kept in a retrospective mood, the 80s approach taken on the hook-loaded "You Got Emotion" and "It's Sensational" works better, and the result is indeed sensational, truly outstanding performances! Thank Motorcity for giving so many artists, underrated by Motown in the first place, a second chance to showcase their talent properly."
