This is a very nice collection of tracks spanning The Supremes recording career from 1961-1973, in other words the Diana Ross years (61-70) and the following Jean Terrell years (70-73). There isn't anything from the final years 1974-1977 which is, I presume, because those are the lesser-known years as far as the general public goes. That period didn't have any big hits although "He's my man" from 1975 just missed the charts and really should have been a hit. It would have been nice to have this or another track from this period, just so that the whole recording career was covered but that's a personal wish.( tracks from this period are on the 3-CD "let yourself go,the 70s vol.2 1974-1977-the final sessions").
The tracks on this CD are very diverse, as one might expect from such a long period of time and with different lead singers, and contains several huge hits including "Stoned Love", which is my personal favourite. This hit #3 UK, #7 US pop and #1 US R&B, the groups last #1 R&B hit and highest-charting 70s hit. For many fans this is the high-point of the post-Ross Supremes as it demonstrates clearly that Jean Terrell had as good a voice, if not better, than Diana Ross.Read more ›
The cover photograph shows Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong, but at least 7 of the tracks have nothing to do with Diana Ross at all - they are from the Jean Terrell years, and so of course, the sound from the "baby love" days, to "Stoned love" is different musically, but in particular, vocally.
For the typical Supremes fan, we will have all of these tracks numerous times, but there are some unusual tracks too "your heart belongs to me" which dates back 50 years now, to the very early days of Diana, Mary and the late Florence Ballard. 'Remove this doubt' is without doubt, one of of Diana's soulful tracks from the height of their career, when almost every record they made hit the US number 1.
One of my favourites on here is "it's time to break down" which Jean Terrell performs in such a splendid way, and is from the Supremes second album with Jean "new ways but love stays". It's a lengthy ballad, but a very powerful one, allowing Jean (in particular) to demonstrate her vocal ability.
The Stevie Wonder produced 'bad weather' is also featured, and it would be brilliant to hear all the other tracks he allegedly produced on the Supremes shortly before Jean left the group in 1973.
The CD closes with 'my favourite things' which sums the whole CD. It is a collection of 'my favourite things' that being the Supremes.
Will it be a major seller? It's certainly priced extremely well - and so should sell - and maybe if it sells to those without much knowledge of the Supremes vast catalogue, it may generate a whole new set of fans who love the Supremes music and will keep their name, and music, in the hearts of minds for many more decades.
