Product Description

CD Description

When, in 1961, the Marvelettes climbed to the top of the national pop charts with their first single, "Please Mr. Postman", they brought Motown with them, helping to establish the little label from Detroit. That first phase of the group’s career was thoroughly chronicled in Forever: The Complete Motown Albums Vol. 1, a thee-CD limited edition set that brought together the group’s first six albums and every stray single, B-side and rarity from the early era.

This new four-CD set is released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "Please Mr. Postman" becoming Motown’s first No. 1 hit. With 108 songs, this set collects the group’s highly sought-after, final four albums, originally released 1967-1970: The Marvelettes (a/k/a “The Pink Album”), Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom and The Return Of The Marvelettes and more of the non-LP singles, B-sides and rarities issued on various compilations.

Featured in the set are the group’s best-known songs from the era, including the chart hits "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", "When You’re Young And In Love", "My Baby Must Be A Magician", "Here I Am Baby" and "That’s How Heartaches Are Made", as well as fans' favorite album tracks. But that’s not all: the set also includes a disc of 24 "Lost & Found" Marvelettes tracks from the Motown vaults, featuring never-before-heard songs written and produced by Smokey Robinson, Norman Whitfield, Mickey Stevenson, Johnny Bristol and more. These "vault gems" are from the group’s entire career, 1961-70.

Other rarities include: an unreleased, extended mix of "When You’re Young And In Love", with a spoken intro; the long Anthology LP version of "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game"; a UK-only version of the LP track "I’m Gonna Hold On Long As I Can", with an extended intro; and various vault tracks, like "Love Is Good" and "Poor Little Rich Girl", found on UK CD releases in recent years. And, for serious fans, included are the extremely rare mono versions of the albums The Marvelettes and Sophisticated Soul; the latter was never issued commercially. All of this fabulous music featured in the four-CD Forever More: The Complete Motown Albums Vol. 2 is housed in a beautifully designed digipak in keeping with the look and size of Vol. 1, with a 40-page booklet stuffed with rare and classic photos, reproductions of the original LP artwork, detailed track annotations, and an essay by Motown chronicler Stu Hackel.

Format:Audio CD
Anxiously awaited by Marvelettes fans, Forever More, The Complete Motown albums Volume 2 is the final installment of this iconic vocal group's recorded output, as well as previously unreleased material uncovered in the legendary Tamla/Motown vaults. Picking up when the group had been whittled down to a trio consisting of Gladys Horton, Wanda Young and Katherine Anderon, this collection concludes when Ann Bogan replaced Horton.

Berry Gordy proudly proclaimed that the Motown sound was based on "rats, roaches, soul, guts and love." As his musical empire developed into the "Sound Of Young America" and entered the popular music mainstream expanding into upscale nightclubs and television, certain groups, notably the Marvelettes were left behind.

Arguably, even the Marvelettes album cover art and graphics were not as visually compelling as their label mates. The recording "Return Of The Marvelettes," actually only featured the voice of Wanda Young, displayed a cover portrait of three woman riding horseback, two with obscured faces. In Marc Taylor's "The Original Marvelettes Motown's Mystery Girl Group," Katherine Anderson stated "Smokey wanted me to do a photo shoot. I told them if I wasn't good enough to sing background on some of the songs, then I'm not good enough to do a cover shoot." The anonymous females were actually members of the Norman Whitfield inspired group, The Undisputed Truth. Ironically some of his unreleased tracks on the Marvelettees are to be found in this collection. As if to make up for past deficiencies, this four disc set is visually beautifully presented, featuring striking portraits of these attractive young singers in their heyday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant compilation 23 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having bought Volume 1 as soon as I could I placed an advanced order for this volume with the very highest expectations. Again, they were greatly exceeded.

The description on Amazon and the track listing are both accurate and comprehensive and I agree with every word of the other review. Anyone unfamiliar with the wonderful records can listen to samples on the album page.

The compilation completes the Marvelettes albums containing the tracks from The Marvelettes (the Pink Album - possibly my favourite of all their LPs), Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom and The Return of the Marvelettes. For completeness these these are supplemented by the mono versions of The Marvelettes and Sophisticated Soul, together with several tracks that did not appear on the US versions of these albums and, best of all, no less that 24 (two LPs worth!) of original, i.e. previously unissued, material! The non-album tracks span their career, e.g. "Three Months" dates from late 1961.

The quality of Marvelettes' recordings were consistent good throughout their career and I recommend this to anyone who loves 60s Motown or Girl Group records but get before the price shoots up, as with Vol. 1! If in doubt, listen to the samples.

4.0 out of 5 stars The end of The Marvelettes 4 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally the long awaited Part 2 of "The Marvelettes Forever More." It turned out to be a somewhat disappointing collection. The 1967 album "The Marvelettes" is here at last and well worth the wait. "Sophisticated Soul" & "In Full Bloom" are also in the good parts of this collection. (I cannot understand why "The Marvelettes" & "Sophisticated Soul" are also included in their entirity in the mono format - it doesn't add anything to the collection, except perhaps to the price!) The previously unreleased tracks from the early 1960's are also well worth the wait and truly display the girls early raw talent.
On to the less than pleasing other tracks. "The Return of The Marvelettes" is truly a disaster!!! How on earth could Motown release this under that title? (The sleeve art work should have given a clue as to how truly appalling this album is!!!!) Perhaps it should have been called "Wanda Rogers & The Undisputed Truth/The Andantes." The recordings show just how much Wanda's voice was "protected" by the other two Marvelettes; she never was a strong lead. (Gladys Horton was so desperately missed on all the recordings from 1968 onwards.) Her replacement - Anne Bogan - is a strong backing singer, but again I cannot work out why she was given several tracks as a lead singer. (Why was Katherine Anderson never given the chance to take a lead vocal?) As for the extended version of "When your young and in love" with a spoken intro by Wanda is nothing less than truly embarassing and cringe-making!!!! Sadly, the departure of the late & great Gladys in 1967 started the decline of the group into obscurity.
Historically the package is a very good record of the group and their recordings. Perhaps deleting the two mono albums would make it more reasonably priced. The accompanying booklet includes some excellent pictures and stories of the group.
