If you can ever FIND this anthology, please, get it!
Esmeralda Villarreal
The item is a good quality product and it had the songs that my album had.
Joseph Arnold
That makes this the best double-disc Supremes collection on the market.

Mr. Scott Brown (below) is exactly right. This 1986 release was the first substantially sized Supremes set put out in the CD-era. It exactly duplicated the 3-LP set of the same name from 1974 and, to take advantage of added room, it reached back further for "Your Heart Belongs to Me," then included a dozen obvious selections from the post-Diana Ross era. Certainly the '74 vinyl issuing was a big deal, but by '86 this was considerably less exciting. Some substitutions might have livened things: from "A Bit Liverpool," their sassy reading of "You Can't Do That" over "A Hard Day's Night," "Cupid" over "You Send Me" from "We Remember Sam Cooke," and the comic "Sadie Sadie" or "If a Girl Isn't Pretty" over "Greatest Star" from the "Funny Girl" album.
This set was subsequently reworked in 1995 and 2001 and, in my opinion the September 1995 version, if you can find it, is the best of the three CD versions. The 'outside' material was dropped for LP and B-side rarities: "Mother Dear," "He's All I Got," "Remove This Doubt," "Long Gone Lover" and the Phil Spector-produced "Things Are Changing," among them. Best of all, it was in mono and, for us 50-ish types, this took us back to the way we remember Supremes stuff when it was REALLY new. But I also bought the 2001 version even though it went back to stereo and restored the show tunes, because it also reached all the way backward to "I Want A Guy," and finally included "Whisper You Love Me Boy." Motown ain't stupid, and each re-working has included one or two new must-haves, so you shell out the money even though you've got 90% of the stuff already. (You bet, before it was a month old, the five-disc, crushed red velvet box set of 2000 got bought too, and "70s Anthology" awaits). Such is the lot of hard-core Supremes fans.

Don't let my rating and my title confuse you. The CD is great -- everything for a Diana/Supremes fan. Why I'm disappointed is that I took these reviews to heart and expected to hear vast differences in songs like "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart" or "You Keep Me Hangin' On". More of Flo and Mary and with some extended versions. Duh? Color me crazy but an extra five seconds on "YKMHO" is not an "extension" in my book. Nor do I understand how these people are hearing more background when the backing track is actually REMOVED from the end of this song. The girls appear in the very last verse, which is part of that extended 5 seconds, doing nothing more than what you hear in all previous versions: "Oooh, oooh, oooh". As for the 'new and improved' "LILAIIMH" --- yeah, I'm still waiting.

Don't get me wrong. As I said, the CD is great. The music is wonderful and the sound quality is first rate. But, if you want to hear some different versions of these songs, check out the instrumentals by The Funk Brothers on the "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown" soundtrack.

This is really a great collection of the Supremes 1960s recordings. It is perhaps a bit heavy on the pre-million selling songs and a couple of the choices in the "Supreme Stylists" section on CD2 are odd even for fans, but very complete overall.
It is quite an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable journey listening to how the group's sound matures from "I Want A Guy" to their last single "Someday We'll Be Together." There are several rarities (alternate mixes of "You Keep Me Hanging On", "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart", "Try It Baby", etc.) on both discs to make devoted fans, like myself, jump for joy.
My only real beef is that the remastering is not up to expected high standard. Most of the tracks sound as if they were run through a highly compressed FM radio signal. This is a surprise considering the great sound quality of the Supremes box set released in 2000. In spite of this, for us devoted fans, this is still an indispensible collection.
Now, how about a two-disc anthology of the post-Diana Ross (1970-1977) Supremes???

This album has been out since before Christmas. It's the FIFTH--count 'em--FIFTH Supremes anthology from Motown, not to mention countless hits collections and even uses the cover from a previous anthology, only reversed. This album is better sounding than its predecessors and has a better selection of songs. It also features rare versions of Supremes hits though many rare versions (the psychedelic original version of "Love Is Like An Itching") remain unissued. Here we get the THIRD version of "Buttered Popcorn" to appear on C.D., we get "Mother Dear" in the order it would have appeared as a single (at the last minute, after the Supremes introduced it on the Red Skelton Show, it was wisely replaced with "Nothing But Heartches") and there's the tracks from the nearly impossible to find Hollywood Palace album. There's leads by all the ladies and a splendid essay on the group, much better than a previous has-no-clue effort by a major author who found mystery in the group's history where there is none. Motown's ability to mine the same goldfield over and over is amazing; all they gotta do is stick in one unissued track and they've got a best-seller. There is, however, a TON of unissued material from the Supremes that still hasn't been issued and well worth hearing. As for the Jean Terrell-led Supremes, there's whole albums of music that never made it out, including the splendid "Promises Kept" and several live albums. Couldn't they at least release on C.D. the Supremes "Live in Japan" album? It's a crime Motown year after year after year, owner after owner after owner, simply ignores the possibilities.
