Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The title is a bit of a misnomer: The Supremes are anthologized in more comprehensive fashion on Motown's three-volume Greatest Hits series, while this package is denser, and has a higher hit-per-track ratio. But if you'd rather pick up one collection than three, and if you want a good, thorough skimming of cream from the group's catalog, this is the better choice. All of the familiar songs are here, with no major omissions--and they're packed in with a liberal helping of second-magnitude hits. For a collection that samples only the extreme top end of the Supremes' output, there's Every Great No. 1 Hit, also on Motown. It's missing a lot, but it delivers exactly what it promises. --Gavin McNett

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! The Ultimate Collection from Diva Ross and her two Supreme sidekicks is just that....the ULTIMATE Collection! This is the best single-disc compilation on the market by the chirpy trio and features more than a plethora of hits. The world is a much better place because of songs like 'Where Did Our Love Go', 'Stop! In The Name Of Love', 'I Hear A Symphony', 'Baby Love', 'You Can't Hurry Love', 'The Happening' and everything else on this CD. There's 25 great tracks here that say more in three minutes than many artists entire catalog. It's soulful. It's melodic. It's brilliant. It's the ultimate collection. Universal.

I have seen a negative review on this CD which I don't understand. It complains of this CD's sound quality. This collection is a remastering of the songs as they were released as mono singles (the ORIGINAL hits) . These are the versions, that when current, we heard on the radio. These are the versions that we bought as 45's. The Supremes cuts that we've been listening to for the past 25 plus years have been the album mixes. As is noted in this CD's liner notes, the album mixes were sometimes completely different cuts of the same songs, including the vocals. Yes, the sound quality isn't as great as it is on the album releases but after sooo many years, I'm sooo happy to hear the songs as they sounded when I fell in love with them, oh, so long ago.

The hand claps...the shuffling, 6/8 time signatures...the tamborine played over the snare...the "baby, baby" background vocals...the classic Motown Sound is unmistakable, and still makes for some of the most earnest pop music ever recorded. No bandwagon-chasing, trend-following artists in search of a quick buck...just pure and honest soul sung with unbridled joy. And one of the most beloved and popular examples of it is Diana Ross and the Supremes, the quintessential Girl Group for the ages. "The Ultimate Collection" is exactly that, a generously thorough exploration of their legendary career.
With the possible exception of "Stoned Love," recorded after Diana Ross' departure, every significant Supremes track is included. Every #1 hit is here (with "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," and "Stop! in the Name of Love" still sounding as fresh and sunny as they did three decades ago) as well as some songs that are so well known and loved it's a wonder they didn't top the charts as well (such as the cheerful "When the Lovelight Shines Through His Eyes" and the psychedelic "Reflections"). We're also treated to a healthy helping of their lesser-heard material: some, such as "In and Out of Love" and "Forever Came Today," make for fine listening, but songs like "My World is Empty Without You," "Love is Like an Itching in My Heart," and "The Composer" are particularly strong tracks that were definitely robbed of greater commercial success.
So whereas the Supremes box set goes a bit overboard (post-Ross tracks are fine, but does anyone really need the group's Coca-Cola radio spot on CD?

No sense repeating the extensive reviews regarding how influential and entertaining this music is. It's truly astounding, and the music is brilliant.

However...

In remastering these recordings, the audio engineers have apparently done what I always call a "boost and compress," which reduces dynamic range, increases overall apparent loudness, and often increases distortion. Back in the 60's, the tendency was to mix songs with vocals much louder than the accompanying music, and with very little deep bass. Nowadays the tendency is right the opposite, with electronically generated deep bass notes, and vocals barely peeking over the music. To give the Supremes a more modern sound, they seem to have compressed these tracks to bring up the music, especially the bass. The result is distorted and unnatural vocals, and compressed dynamic range, especially on the older songs. It's really a shame.

If you can't tell the difference between mp3's and CDs, you won't care. If you're an audiophile, you'll be disappointed.

It's called 'The Ultimate Collection' and that ain't braggin'. And it's in glorious mono, not like the thinned out stereo versions on 'The #1s' set (do you get the feeling I really don't care for that ripoff?).
David Lee Roth once described VanHalen's music as being "shot from cannons". Well, I can think of no better way to describe this disc. All 25 tracks are nothing less than explosive. And that's because they're in mono. The sound is so in your face it cannot be denied. This is one of the most thrilling discs you will ever hear.
We all know the songs. My favorite one turned out to be not one of their biggest hits, but I think it's their best, "Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart". This may well be the most out of control Diana Ross has ever been. She sings within an inch of her life, she growls(!), she lives the song. Remarkable.
So, put aside all the Dreamgirl drama you've heard and pick up this set... and skip 'The #1s'!

Format: Audio CD
Between 1964 and 1969, The Supremes placed 25 songs in the Top 40 (including two hits with labelmates The Temptations: "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" and "I'll Try Something New")--and they are all here on one terrific disc.
While their first chart hit, "When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes," only reached No. 23, they followed that with a string of five consecutive No. One hits--a feat that wasn't duplicated until twenty-five years later when Mariah Carey did it.
Quite simply, the Supremes are the best girl vocal group of all time. With the writing team of Holland-Dozier-Holland (who wrote their first seventeen hits), The Supremes camped out in Billboard's Top 40 for five years with such memorable hits as "Baby Love," "Stop! In the Name of Love," "Back in My Arms Again," "I Hear a Symphony," "You Can't Hurry Love" and "Love Child."
Accept no substitutes--this is Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard (who was replaced by Cindy Birdsong in 1967). After Ross's departure, Wilson soldiered on until 1977, but none of those hits are included here. [They can be found on Motown's out-of-print two-disc anthology series if you're a completist, but The Ultimate Collection has the essential hits.]
Of all the Supremes collections currently available this is the one that delivers the goods. Forget Ross's upcoming Return to Love Tour with a regrouped Supremes. Ross will be performing with Lynda Lawrence and Sherrie Payne, whose only connection to the Supremes is that they both performed with Mary Wilson in the Seventies. Get this album instead and relive the Supremes' glory years. ESSENTIAL
