Editorial Reviews

A vivid portrait of the Supremes' final years (1974-77), this 3-CD set comes in a beautiful hardcover-book package full of reminiscences by Mary Wilson, Scherrie Payne, Cindy Birdsong and Susaye Greene plus Motown producer Brian Holland. Rare and unseen photos fill out the extensive liner notes, which join the LPs The Supremes and High Energy (which charted in '75 and '76) plus unreleased bonus cuts from the sessions, alternate takes with various lead vocals and, perhaps most compellingly of all, an original, alternate mix of the complete High Energy album. You'll hear the pop hits I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do the Walking and You're My Driving Wheel ; the R&B hits He's My Man; Where Do I Go from Here (multiple versions of all those); Let Yourself Go , and more. The supreme retrospective of the final chapter of a legendary Motown group!

5.0 out of 5 stars *Explosive* Combination! May 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The final three 70s Supremes' albums have finally dropped in LET YOURSELF GO: THE 70S ALBUMS, VOL. 2: 1974-1977 THE FINAL SESSIONS, 3-CD set, which featured the line-up of Mary Wilson, Cindy Birdsong, Scherrie Payne, and Susaye Greene. Not only does it collect the group's last three albums "The Supremes," "High Energy," and "Mary, Scherrie & Susaye," but the set generously includes alternate takes, extended versions, previously unreleased tracks, and different lead vocals (listening to the Greene lead on "I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking" and you'll swear you're hearing Deniece Williams).

But more importantly, the last three albums indicated a dramatic vocal styling change for the Supremes. Whereas the previous albums -- sans Diana Ross -- could've been called "Jean Terrell and The Supremes," these gems have the group sharing lead vocals and have closer and tighter harmonies. Wilson gets her time to shine in the spotlight, and Payne providing powerhouse-soulful vocals, took the group's sound in much more mature-sounding direction.

For some reason, I always found Jean Terrell's voice cloying, like a little girl's voice, even though I like the songs "Up The Ladder," "Nathan Jones," and "Stoned Love," and always felt that Motown/Gordy went looking for someone who sounded like Ross to replace her. On these tracks, you'll hear none of that. Wilson and Payne sound nothing like Ross (or Terrell for that matter), which is why I say that this group's incarnation was radically different sounding from anything that came in the previous shake-ups in the Supremes' past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! May 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
In this day and age when record stores are closing and companies like Collector's Choice and Rhino seem to be in limbo, it's comforting to see a beautiful set like "Let Yourself Go" be released. This is the second installment in Hip-O-Select's series of the '70s albums by the Supremes, after Diana Ross left the group. The first set featured the fabulous lead vocals of Jean Terrell, while this set features Scherrie Payne as the lead on many of the vocals, and she's a dynamic, powerful singer, as well as longtime member Mary Wilson providing her sultry, breathy vocals on many of the ballads. The '70s Supremes didn't have the backing of Motown like the Ross-led Supremes did, but they certainly didn't lack talent. The songs on this set are very good, and while there may not be as a consistent run of hits like the '60s Supremes, at least this set showed the Supremes were able to adapt to the changing music trends. Payne's voice was perfect for disco, and tracks like "He's My Man", "High Energy" and "I'm Gonna Let My Heard Do the Walking" demonstrate this.

Hip-O-Select has done a wonderful job with this set. Like a previous reviewer said, this set has a similar design to the first set, so it fits perfectly on your shelves with that collection. But this collection is much more colourful and flashy than the first set in terms of the colours and design.

This is a pricey set, but at a limited edition of 5,000 copies, it is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Reigning Supreme May 29, 2011
By Kenneth
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"The Girls," as they were affectionately dubbed by Detroit DJs in their Golden Era, had grown into a very sophisticated and talented trio from their early days as The Primettes through their various incarnations as The Supremes. Without a doubt, the later groupings never achieved the star power or chart success as when led by Diane Ross, but the group was never short on talent and this lavish 3-CD set proves that, even during the years when they were winding down they had some of the best production and talent they'd ever had.

Following Diane's departure, The Supremes were first led by Jean Terrell who, while much different vocally and stylistically than Ross, honed closer to a traditional Motown style. Her voice was strong and had color but tended to lack a range of emotion. Still, the hits came: the ethereal "Up the Ladder to the Roof," the prayer for peace "Stoned Love," the stylized "Nathan Jones," and others.

When Terrell was replaced by Scherrie Payne, the shift was much more dramatic. Payne was also an experienced singer, who had been one of two female singers in a quartet called Glass House. She had a more bluesy-jazz-showstopper style than either Terrell or even Ross. She could sing in a variety of types of songs, but excelled in high tempo dance numbers where it seemed she could outsing any orchestra no matter how much production there was going on in the mix.

This lavish set takes the three Payne-led Supremes albums and expands them with alternate takes, unreleased songs, and, in the case of one LP, an entire alternate mix of the entire album. Unless you followed the Supremes back then, the singles won't be familiar to you.

Finally it's here! This compilation as been a very long time coming. The music of the 70's SUPREMES has far too long been over-looked. Most probably thought that they would roll over & die after Ross left to go solo in 1970. Motown was probably counting on it. Far from it though. They actually started out of the gates ahead of her. "UP THE LADDER TO THE ROOF",their first song back on their own pulled in to a solid #10, well ahead of Ross' first solo: "REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEBODY'S HAND", HITTING #20. In fact, in only the first few years of the 70's they managed 4 million selling singles. Besides "LADDER" there was "NATHAN JONES", "FLOY JOY", & a second top ten; "STONED LOVE" hitting #7. And these songs could have even been much bigger had they had greater backing from their Record Company. "STONED LOVE" for example was selling out in the record stores but as word as it, they were not resupplying it in the stores to keep it selling. As time went on it became harder & harder for the group alone to sustain forward movement. 'Jean Terrell' got fed up with the lack of support & quit in 1973, along with 'Linda Laurence' who had only been there just one year.
Which brings us to 1975 & the first of their last 3 albums. 'Mary Wilson', the only original SUPREME left, had to re-form a new group. She got 'Cindy Birdsong' to rejoin & then also hired a new singer, 'Scherrie Payne'to the group. This new album compilation that has just come out, "LET YOURSELF GO...THE FINAL SESSIONS", covers those complete last 3 albums. 1975's "THE SUPREMES", 1976'S "HIGH ENERGY", & "MARY,SCHERRIE, & SUSAYE" in late 76. When 'Cindy Birdsong' left again in 76 then 'Susaye Greene' the very last 'SUPREME' joined the group, for what proved to be just one year.
