Rare and well done

"This CD features songs by Motown artists that didn't have enough hits to have their own "Greatest Hits" album. The CD starts off with six pretty good "girl" songs, none of which were very big hits. Then we have the classic "Money", which was Motown's first hit record. Songwriter Eddie Holland's only hit, "Jamie", is next. Then we have two great songs by the great Isley Brothers. Two fun novelty songs by Shorty Long are next. The classic "Smiling Faces Sometimes" is next. That is followed by two pretty good songs by the rock group Rare Earth. Then there is a pretty good version of "River Deep, Mountain High" by the Supremes and the Four Tops, although it's not as good as Ike & Tina Turner's version. The one hit by one hit wonder R. Dean Taylor is next. They saved the three worst songs for the end of the album. "I've Never Been to Me" is probably the worst hit song ever released by Motown. "With You I'm Born Again" is a terrible duet. The Tom Clay "song" is a dated 70s plea for peace, love and understanding that features news clips about the JFK, MLK and RFK assassinations.
