Format: Audio CD
When A Cellarful Of Motown appeared in 2002 the general consensus was that it was astonishing that so many tracks of such amazing quality could have remained languishing unheard in an archive, lost and undocumented for so many years. Even the compilers registered their surprise and doubted there would be enough fresh discoveries to warrant a sequel of previously unreleased material.
Motown was on a phenomenal roll throughout the sixties, with the Hitsville studio in Detroit augmented by a second studio in the Davison area, and further recording and talent spotting operations setting up in New York, Chicago and especially in Los Angeles, where the company eventually relocated. Hitsville seemed to operate around the clock, like a factory, with songs being tried out with various groups and singers in a highly competitive and creative ferment, and an extremely discard rate.
A few tracks into Volume 2, three years later, having heard new classic cuts by Earl Van Dyke, Eddie Holland and Gladys Knight, any fears that quality control may have been lowered to fill another double-CD collection were blown away. How could any of these have been deemed unworthy of release at the time?
Sometimes a recording remained in the can because the song was released by another artist (often using the same backing track), but often both song and recording were consigned to oblivion.
Here, for example is The Boy From Crosstown in its original 1965 version by the Marvelettes, featuring Gladys Horton. A re-recording appeared the following year on an obscure compilation called Year By Year, and the song turned up on Gladys Knight and the Pips' 1968 album Feelin' Bluesy, but was never the single it deserved to be despite two other attempts featuring the Velvelettes, also unreleased at the time.

This second volume of Motown rarities is a wonderful companion to the initial one; in fact, it is arguably more interesting because a greater variety of artists are represented. Although there are no duds at all, standouts include Eddie Holland's "Take Me in Your Arms" (same backing track as Kim Weston's hit), Hattie Littles' "Love Trouble Heartache and Misery" (a really "tough" sound), Supremes' (Jean Terrell) "You've Got to Pay the Price" (what a voice!) and Blinky's rockin' take on Fontella Bass' "Rescue Me" (same producer as the original hit). With two hidden, bonus tracks and talk of Volume 3 in the liner notes, there's nothing else to say except "Get it"!

Amazing how much stuff the TM labels recorded and then dumped in the vaults! Were they doing it for a bet?.
Fortunately the CD Age came about and there was no reason to keep so much stuff hidden.
But their logics are more difficult to comprehend.They sign up a 9 year old girl Lisa Lewis whose mother was one of the Lewis Sisters.I mean great to revive the idea of the Hot Boppin' Girl but why not run with it?
TM were into signing up ex band singers like Billy Eckstine and Connie Haines.They signed up Sammy Davis Jr and they even signed up Pat Boone who cut 2 albums for their Melody sub.
Obviously aimed at collectors but so much here is better than some of what became the hits to my mind

This CD has some amazing tracks on it, and to think they have never been officially released. All the tracks are better than the vast majority of the rubbish being put out as 'Soul' or R&B today - and this is just the stuff Motown never even bothered to promote. Highly recommended.

Just a taste of some of the rare previously unreleased tracks at motowns archives to finnaly be released to the general record buying public. It is a welcome addition to my collection and I cant wait for future releases as this one is brilliant. It has tracks on it or artist that I myself have never heard of. It has prompted me to start reading again mainly sbout Motown.
