5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 4 of 12 looks at 1969 and 1970 14 Mar 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
As the sixties gave way to the seventies, Motown were still going very strongly as this collection shows. The oldest track is I can't help myself (Four Tops), which was only a minor UK hit first time around (although it was an American number one hit in 1965) but made the UK top ten when re-issued in 1970. The Temptations made the UK top twenty three times in the period covered by this volume - once with Diana Ross and the Supremes (I second that emotion) and twice by themselves (Cloud nine, I can't get next to you) although none of these tracks made the top ten. Although the Temptations now get the recognition they deserve in the UK, they were far more popular in America back then.
Apart from her collaboration with the Temptations, Diana Ross is represented here by Reach out and touch (a minor UK hit - her first solo hit) and her last hit billed as Diana Ross and the Supremes (Someday we'll be together) but this was really a Diana Ross solo record - it made the UK top twenty. The Supremes began their career without Diana by making the UK top ten with Up the ladder to the roof.
The Jackson 5 started their career with two UK top ten hits (I want you back, ABC). Other UK top ten hits here are Farewell is a lonely sound (Jimmy Ruffin), Too busy thinking about my baby (Marvin Gaye), Onion song (Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell - except that it wasn't Tammi at all as she was terminally ill and unable to sing - another singer took Tammi's place), Yester-me yester-you, yesterday and Never had a dream come true (both Stevie Wonder).
Only two tracks here failed to make the UK top ten - Do what you gotta do (Four Tops) and What does it take to win your love (Junior Walker) - but both came close.
This is a very strong compilation of some of Motown's classic songs that hit the charts at rhe end of the sixties and the start of the seventies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reaping Rich Rewards 27 Jun 2008
By David R. Bishop VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This one followed Volume 3 to the top of the UK Album chart. It was tucked between Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin in October 1970.

The hits were coming thick and fast for Tamla Motown. Wheras Vol 3 was nearly half re-releases, there was only one on here. The Four Tops' anthemic 'I Can't Help Myself', finally got UK justice with a top ten placing. Their version of Jimmy Webb's 'Do What You Gotta Do' made number 11. Motown and Jimmy had a win-win relationship. His first song writing royalty cheque came from a song he wrote on The Supremes' 1965 Christmas album.

The stock split of Diana Ross & The Supremes is catalogued here. In America, their final single together 'Someday We'll Be Together' was their biggest hit, selling 2 million copies. It stalled outside the top ten here. The (Jean Terrell lead) Supremes first single 'Up The Ladder To The Roof' was the only top ten hit here by any of them. Who would remember now that Diana Ross' first single 'Reach Out And Touch' stalled outside of our top 30. It would become a staple of her concerts for many years.

Stevie Wonder was going strong and getting ready to throw off the artistic shackles of the Motown sound, as was Marvin Gaye. 'The Onion Song' was Marvin & Tammi's biggest British hit. Due to Tammi's poor health, Valerie Simpson did the female lead on that one.

Jimmy Ruffin was proving more popular here than in America. He frequently toured here in the clubs of the North, which became the eastern wing of the chittlin' circuit.

The Jackson 5 began their phenominal run of success in 1970. Their first two American No 1s were also big hits in the UK.

The Tempts were finally getting something like decent UK chart placings.
