Editorial Reviews

Every A- and B-side the Supremes released between their founding and Diana Ross's farewell. Along with the smashes, you'll hear fascinating flops (from the early days when they were known as "the no-hit Supremes" around the Motown office!) like Buttered Popcorn and Your Heart Belongs to Me plus alternate pressings, promo tracks, their theme to a cult film, foreign-language versions and more. As for the hits that turned them into pop goddesses: Where Did Our Love Go; Baby Love; Come See About Me; Stop! In the Name of Love; Back in My Arms Again; Nothing but Heartaches; I Hear a Symphony; My World Is Empty Without You; Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart; You Can't Hurry Love; You Keep Me Hangin' On, and more. 82 tracks!

So this is what we get from the Supremes'50th anniversary: a (fairly good) expanded edition of 'More Hits' and this singles collection - both distributed primarily via internet, not in the stores! No big gala shows, no TV features, hardly any response from the papers! Thus a year that could, should have gone out with a bang, especially with all the renewed interest in the group after 'Dreamgirls', has passed with as much as a whimper. It is beyond me that their label Motown/Universal seemingly does not have a clue how to market this truly remarkable event in the history of one of their biggest acts of the 60's.

Especially this box set is proof for the general lack of commitment on the executives'side. As far as I can tell, the whole set is merely a recycling of hip-os' 'Complete Motown Singles Collection', using the same mixes and adding next to nothing to the track infos available there, except the occasional error: For the forgettable 'Thank You Darling'(sung in German), the booklet offers a release date as late as october 65, while the single was advertised in German trade papers already in late spring and on the charts by summer that year. This is a mere footnote, of course, but the lack of recherche displayed here reminds me of the careless negligence with which 'This Old Heart Of Mine' was listed as the b-side of 'You Can't Hurry Love' on the 2002 Version of the Supremes' 'Anthology' - do the guys involved really know their product? Do they care about it? As long as people are out there who do, they should at least pretend to!

Sure, it is nice to have all the A's and B's collected on one set.

Okay, most hardcore Diana Ross and The Supremes and/or Motown heads have these tracks on one compilation or another. The special alternate versions especially are highlighted on the "Motown Singles" series. Not given the fan fare that say The Beatles 50th Anniversary would be like, this is probably the pinnacle of how Motown will celebrate the anniversary of a group that totally changed my life. So it is a must have in my opinion. It doesn't come by cheaply. And it shouldn't. There is a consistency of themes in the palettes of pink and fuschia similar to "The Supremes Box Set". In fact, on my little display, I am going to place "The 50th Anniversary" collection, the special tinbox that ugh Walmart sold a few years ago and "The Supremes" boxset.

I wished there was even more backstory on the singles but you do get ample information. For once, Billboard is NOT the begin and end of all chart rankings. They reference Cashbox chart positions quite often. "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" was a #1 single! As was "Reflections" (okay that is a bit of a stretch but as charming as it was for its time, who in hades remembers "Ode to Billy Joe", as anything more than a one hit wonder. "Reflections" may very well make it into the Grammy Hall of Fame. "Ode to Billy Joe" will not.

But, for me, this box set is less about the music and more about the total package. That's what I fell in love with that faithful summer of '64 (what a magical year in my life that one was....). Sure, I fell in love with the song first. But it was hearing and seeing them on shows like The Lloyd Thaxton Show (remember that one), Hullabaloo, Shindig, Ed Sullivan (okay I believe that is the only show listed here that they appeared) made the whole thing coalesce.

In the 1960's, I was a big Motown Fan, and a Big Fan of The Supremes, and a Big Fan of Holland-Dozier-Holland.

I always felt that the music coming from Motown was at least as good if not better than anything coming from England and so, there was no way that I was not going to buy this compilation, even though I already have most of these sides in Stereo on other compilations.

I wonder though, if this particular set was really worth the money. First of all, most of it is in mono (as were the most of the original singles); but it's a strange sort of mono, as if the stereo masters were used and mixed back down into mono. As the tracks begin, the first note is in stereo and then reverts to mono. I didn't like that effect. Why use mono when stereo is available? I've been spoiled by time and technology. I don't like mono and I don't remember mono as something good.

Yes, there were flipsides back in the day that were so good that they got plenty of play on the jukeboxes of the era, sides like "There's no stopping us now" and "Going down for the third time". Most of these are readily available on other compilations, if you want them that badly.

Here you also have the occasional rare track like the non-LP B-side "All I know about you" but that hardly justifies the lofty price. And there are unreleased bombs like "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini machine" and "Surfer Boy". I wonder if I'll ever play either of those last two tracks one more than once.

Does anyone whose native language is not German need to here "Stop in the name of Love" sung in an alternate German version as it is here? Again, it's not worth the expense.

I expected all of the above, but I thought they would do a better job with the picture sleeve scans and photography.

what? again?
There's obviously a market for them - some people will allow themselves to be hoodwinked into buying anything.

If you have the Motown singles boxes, or a good anthology of the girls, there's no need for this, completists be damned.
