Product 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.

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.

Owners of Forever - The Complete Motown Albums Volume 1 have had to wait several years for Volume 2 to complete their Marvelettes collection, but it finally arrived, albeit at a far higher price than Volume 1 had been on release. However, it was worth the wait with their final four albums and a complete round-up of the remaining unreleased completed recordings as of 2011, including those that had appeared on other compilations such as the Cellarful Of Motown UK series, 109 tracks in all.

On CD1 The Marvelettes was released in 1967 and included the hit singles The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game, later covered by Blondie and Massive Attack among others, and When You're Young In Love, itself a cover of Ruby and the Romantics. They were a trio by this time, with Wanda taking the lion's share of the vocals, supported by Gladys (with 5 leads) and Katherine. Disc 3 includes a mono pressing of the album, appearing in full on CD for the first time.

Sophisticated Soul, their 1968 album, shares CD1, and its mono mix is on CD3 (this was sent out to DJ's for radio plays on first release but was not released commercially in this form, and appears on CD for the first time). By this time Gladys had left and Ann Bogan had taken her place, and Wanda has all the lead vocals apart from the single I'm Gonna Hold On Long As I Can where Ann takes the lead. There were a number of superb singles on the album (You're The One, Here I Am Baby, Destination Anywhere), some having come out a year or two before the album, but only My Baby Must Be A Magician had made the US pop Top Twenty, with most of Motown's resources going on promoting the Supremes at the time.

In Full Bloom is on CD2, with the same line-up and Ann taking one lead, on Everybody Knows (But You).

This set covers the second part of the Group's stay with Motown. The quality of the music is excellent and the high standard of artwork and detail reflects this. A must have for true Motown Fans.
