"It's really a crying shame that this compilation is not being sold new anymore, but for all thos considering buying it used, let me just tell you that it is a great compilation. I actually purchased mine used at "Newbury Comics". (Truth be told, I snatched it as soon as I saw it so that nobody else would even get a chance to see it!) The tracklisting opens up with their #1 R&B hit, "Jimmy Mack" and goes on to "In & Out Of My Life", before getting to the arousing "(Love Is Like A) Heatwave". The other featured songs, are "Tears On My Pillow", "I Love The Man", "In My Lonely Room", "To Think You Would Hurt Me", "I Should Be Proud", a cover of Smokey Robinson & The Miracle's "Mickey's Monkey", "I Promise To Wait My Love", and "Easily Persuaded". All in all this is a great compilation, because it's not just another re-release of all their greatest hits. What's more, it's a variety of different songs from a variety of different times. (e.g. "(Love Is Like A) Heatwave"(1963), "Jimmy Mack"(1967), "I Should Be Proud"(1970), "In & Out Of My Life" (1971). That's the good thing about these Motown Legends compilations, they provide you with the variety of greatest hits, non-charters, and album fillers. To all those who don't mind purchsing things used on Amazon, I ask you to go ahead with the long wait for a used delivery. In this case, it's worth it.
