By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The full title of this beautifully presented set is:
"This Is The Story - The 70's Albums Vol.1, 1970-1973 - The Jean Terrell Years".
(Jean Terrell replaced Diana Ross as the new lead after Ross left for her solo career).
It's a limited edition of 5000 and was issued in December 2006 by Universal's premium label in the States, Hip-O Select.

PACKAGING:
5 full albums with previously unreleased material and rare sides fill the 3 picture-disc CDs, each of which is in a card leaf at the back of the set with a 44-page booklet preceding them. The booklet pictures each LP, front and rear, gives detailed track-by-track information, provides liner notes on each release and has interview contributions from all concerned. The whole thing is housed in an over-sized hardback silver book sleeve with three die-cut circles at the front to show the three Supremes of the period underneath - Jean Terrell, Mary Wilson and Cindy Songbird. The words "limited edition' are embossed in gold on the back. As you can imagine, the artwork in itself is a thing of beauty and gives the whole project an air of real class.

CONTENT:
Disc 1 (77:31 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are the US album "Right On", April 1970, Motown MS-705
Tracks 13 to 22 are the US album "New Ways But Love Stays", October 1970, Motown MS-720

Disc 2 (79:54 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 10 are the US album "Touch", June 1971, Motown MS-737
Tracks 11 to 23 are The "Promises Kept" Sessions, 1971.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, overlooked, top stuff 25 Feb 2007
By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Sixty-eight tracks!! WOW!. Here I recognize hits like 'Stoned Love' and 'Nathan Jones', as well as album tracks that I remember, and titles that I don't recognise that must be previously unreleased.

Many people forget or do not realise, that for a couple of years or so, after Diana Ross' departure, The Supremes were as popular in Britain as Diana Ross and The Supremes had ever been. I'm not going to get into Ross bashing. She is my past, present and future, but it is a pity and a waste to overlook later incarnations of The Supremes.

Jean Terrell's voice was similar to Diana Ross in some ways, light and nasal, but different enough for her to put her own stamp on the group, and lead them gently towards a slightly more soulful sound.

As well as the hits of those years, with five whole albums plus, the criminally underrated 'Produced and Arranged by Jimmy Webb' album is here. The quality of songs like 'Beyond Myself' and 'Silent Voices' is touching and timeless. Jean sang with an emotional engagement that few could match.

The lavish packaging is oversized, which makes it non-standard for storage. I keep mine where I can always see it.

This album is a must for Supremes completists, and anyone who appreciates good 70s pop/soul music. Looks like I've got a namesake in Manchester with similar musical taste. Spooky!!

David Bishop. Plymouth

5.0 out of 5 stars Glory days without Diana 25 Oct 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Jean Terrell had a more soulful voice than Ms Ross and that made for some tremendous songs. Even the rarities on these 3 CD's sound like they could have been hits. The first Cd opens with 'Up The Ladder' and includes one of their best singles 'Stoned Love'. Also standout tracks are 'Come Together', 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' and 'Na Na Hey hey'.
CD 2 includes 'Nathan Jones', 'Touch' and some interesting covers of 'Eleanor Rigby', 'Time And Love', 'Still Water(Love)', 'If I Were Your Woman' and Carol King's, 'Its Too Late'.
CD3 includes 'Floy Joy' and 'Automatically Sunshine' and lots of unusual but good rarities, closing with 'Bad Weather' and a worthwhile cover of 'Love Train'. With over 60 tracks there it is surprising how few are just fillers. Think this was my favourite period as a real Supremes fan. Worth every penny.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 10 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The material that the Supremes recorded after 1970 has been cruelly overlooked so it's good to see these albums finally getting a cd release.The quality of vocals and production values are extremly high and we can only hope that the final 3 albums from 1975 and 1976 are put out next. Even better would be the inclusion of Mary Wilson's Motown solo effort and the 'Partners' album fron Scherrie Payne and Susaye Green. All in all a truly outstanding collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supremes - The Jean Terrell Years 20 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At long last! The early 70's Supremes albums are available. Why has it taken so long to issue these gems? Terrell, Wilson & Birdsong are in fine voice - and some great unreleased tracks. A must for Supremes officianados - but the price is exorbitant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colin. London 8 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
In a word BRILLIANT.
This is the era of the group that I fell in love with.
Its about time these albums were all available on CD. (I can now put the vinyl into storage
Why is it that the 70's Supremes are always overlooked. They are far superior to the late 1967 - 1969 (In and Out of Love to Someday We'll Be Together)period in their history.
I thought Still Water was a bit short. Seemed to have ended before it got started if you know what I mean
Looking forward to Vol 2
Its a shame that (Mary) the lady who was the main stay of the group does not get more recognition
