5.0 out of 5 stars Motown's Mystery Diva 7 Nov 2013
By scythe
Verified Purchase
After a number of anthology collections, at last we have an original classic album exactly as it was issued in 1968, all 16 fabulous tracks in glorious sound. Then, we get another 8 unknown tracks from the vaults, all of which are of a similarly high standard. I have owned the stereo LP since the early 1970s, and I still marvel at these wonderful performances. Ms Holloway's voice has huge emotional range and power, and you really feel that she can sing anything. Her own composition "You've Made Me So Very Happy" has pride of place at the heart of this collection, and I far prefer it to the hit cover version by Blood, Sweat and Tears - though it is interesting to note, from the accompanying booklet, that Holloway originally wanted to do it up-tempo as well, but Motown producers had other plans. I think they were right. The story of this neglected diva makes salutary reading - at this remove, she is evidently sanguine about the pressures on a small independent record company, with so much great talent on its books. All we can do now is sit back and enjoy this testament to a truly great voice. Artistry indeed. Five stars, no question, and well deserved. You go, Brenda!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moltown Legend At Her Best! 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This is the original 1968 album with added bonus tracks. Brenda Holloway was billed as Motowns next great female singer following the departure of Mary Wells in 1964. Her first album Every Little Bit Hurts is also a must, this set contains a few tracks from that album, this album contains all of Brenda's A sides made up to this point at Motown and some other tracks which so easily could have been singles. She left Motown in 1968-69 and recorded, along with her sister Patrice, for the Holland Dozier Holland label Invictus she released a few gospel albums in the 1980's and only returned to performing in 1992 after the death of her friend Mary Wells. She released her last album in 2003 "My Love Is Your Love", but her best days were at Motown. She has a wonderful soulful voice and should have enjoyed greater success. This album is a must for all Motown fanatics and lovers of female voices.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Am Fed Up Now! 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase
I love this lady and would happily pay good money to hear her sing the telephone directory while in the bath but........the re are an awful lot of companies bringing out product now that is a repeat of something else and I am fed up with being conned. KENT are brilliant when they bring out the old stuff and for me it was strange to hear the original album in stereo as my own vinyl copy was glorious mono. Let's face it we all bought it solely for the bonus tracks but the only one of any note was one which had been freely available amongst fans for years and the others, although 'interesting' and something new on Brenda, were easily identified as ones that you could see the reson for remaining in the vaults unissued! Maybe I have just been spoiled what with the previous almost 'totally unavailable before' offering from KENT and a relatively recent 2 disc Motown collection with unissued tracks and ore than her fair share of unissued tracks popping up on Motown Compilations. But let's admit it, if you are reading this then you have heard of Brenda Holloway and you will therefore love this album, as I do.
