5.0 out of 5 stars A Dozen Delectable Ditties From Motown Vaults. 25 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
Finders Keepers is the latest in a long line of girl group CDs from Ace Records and this time, it consists of Motown recordings.

Of the twelve new tracks, seven date from before 1964, which sets them nicely in the proto-Motown Sound days.

Looking at the gems from the vaults, I was surprised to see Sylvia Moy's name amongst the composers of Brenda Holloway's Don't
Turn Your Back On Me. I'd always assumed that this was a Lewis Sisters composition - it certainly has the feel of one of their quirky songs .

Like several other new songs on the CD, the Gladys Knight & the Pips song is known to Motown collectors (as Fare Thee Well) from home-made CDRs of unreleased tracks. It's one of the first Motown recordings by the group and it's hard to comprehend how something this good was over-looked previously.

The new LaBrenda Ben track is a Motown stomper and I'm waiting to learn if others hear the ghost of Motown standard I want My Baby Back recorded by a variety of male artists. It's a fabulous dance track and no surprise, given the incredible roster of talent behind it, produced by Norman Whitfield an composed by him with Brian Holland and Eddie Kendricks.

What a gem of an early Motown party record Thelma Brown's Dance Yeah Dance is. Thelma is a bit of a mystery singer yet she has a fabulous voice. Let's hope there are more tracks by her in them thar vaults.

I must confess that Carolyn Crawford has never been one of my favourite singers but Lover Boy is, without doubt, the best recording I've heard by her. I love that delicate waltz-type rhythm and those beautiful backing vocals. It's a Smokey gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of rare and unreleased Motown 26 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Ace/Kent series of Motown reissues has been going a few years now and, so far, every release has followed the same pattern: in-depth examinations of a single artist, complete with lavish liner notes and rare photos, often including a bunch of unreleased tracks. They've all been worth getting, and there are some real gems tucked away on each of them, but with "Finders Keepers" the recipe has changed.

Instead of just one artist, this is an overview of pretty much ALL Motown's best-known early-mid '60s female acts (only Tammi Terrell is missing, off the top of my head), but deliberately shying away from the big hits and well-known classics - every track is either previously unreleased, or very rarely heard. This approach allows the compilers to sneak on a few lesser-known artists where maybe it wouldn't be commercially viable to do a full single-artist anthology; Anita Knorl and Thelma Brown are the two real unknowns here, but there's also great material from people only hardcore Motown aficionados will recognise: the Andantes, LaBrenda Ben, Carolyn Crawford, Liz Lands, the great Hattie Littles. Along with those, we get rarities from all Motown's big-ticket female artists, including never-before-released tracks from Martha and the Vandellas and Gladys Knight & the Pips, the first official release for Brenda Holloway's much-bootlegged "Don't Turn Your Back On Me", and even a 'new' Kim Weston track which didn't appear on her Anthology CD set. Plus, there's a sprinkling of long-forgotten album tracks and rare old singles that should be new to people who didn't shell out the big bucks for the Complete Motown Singles series - the Supremes, Mary Wells, the Vandellas again, the Marvelettes.

4.0 out of 5 stars All Keepers 8 Mar 2014
By Lozarithm TOP 500 REVIEWER TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ace have been the most recent label to access the plentiful vaults of unreleased material at Motown, following on from the British licensees Tamla Motown, and US-based Hip-O-Select. This release is the first mixed artist compilation of Motown recordings and concentrates on the girl singers and girl groups on their books between 1961 and 1967. Half of the tracks have never been released before, with the remainder being mostly album tracks or B-sides, or, as in the case of the Velvelettes, only released decades after they were made. Perhaps the best known tracks are the Supremes single, Buttered Popcorn, from the days when they were the "no hit" Supremes, and featuring Florence Ballard on lead vocals, and Mary Wells' What's Easy For Two Is So Hard For One. This was originally a 1963 B-side but was well known enough to be included on her Greatest Hits album after she had left the company, in 1966. The Miracles selection features a lead vocal from one-time member Claudette Robinson in place of their usual lead singer, husband Smokey.

A couple of selections that are well-known favourites from acetates and bootlegs get their first belated official releases, and sounding a million times better from original sources. These include an early epic Gladys Knight and the Pips outing from 1967, and a find attributed to the Marvelettes on acetate labels but that turns out to be a backing track intended for them that still has the demo vocal from one Bettie Winston. She was discovered by the track's producer Robert Hamilton, but left with him when he defected to Golden World a year later, and the track was then shelved.

The Marvelettes also provide the compilation's title track, Finders Keepers Losers Weepers.
