Format: Audio CD
I must take issue with the other two reviews thus far posted here, but not on the quality of the music. I have given this cd a 3 star rating not on the basis of the music,which is of course fabulous as the other reviewers correctly state, but on the title 'Definitive'. I am so heartily sick of record companies titling collections such as this as 'definitive',ultimate' or 'the very best' etc, etc,when quite clearly they are not. Sincere corporate claims such as 'New' and 'Improved' spring to mind.

The ommissions here are many, and of course Marvelettes/Motown fans may disgree on what should and should not have been included, but to call this 'Definitive' and leave out 'When you're young and in love' on an 18 track cd of only just over 46 minutes running time is just sloppy, sloppy work from the compiler/s and an insult to the buyer.

In addition, the sleeve notes fail to give release dates for the tracks, which is always annoying on historic compilations.

This cd does indeed have a slightly more polished sound than the 2000 US compilation 'The Ultimate Collection' but is a poor substitute in terms of value and material presented.

When will this wonderful, criminally underrated Motown act get the collection it deserves, because this most certainly isn't it. And as long as Universal is managing the Motown catalogue, given their track record thus far, I'm not holding my breath.

Format: Audio CD
Even if you think you have everything possible to possess by 'The Marvelettes', buy this CD.There are [unfortunately] many great tracks that have been missed, for example 'When you are young and in love' but..for once someone out there has put together a collection that has been sharpened. All too often this group has been at the mercy of a hastily thrown together compilation , muddy tracks, hurried notes and the worst possible photographs. This has great pictures and the quality of the sound is as it should have been..Motown at its most dance floor best. even the minor hits such as 'Forever' and 'Strange i know' are cleaner.The jewels in this crown are..A slightly different version of "The hunter get captured by the game' and a version of 'I'll keep holding on' which has got a different drum and piano track so it is crisp and pure northern soul dance around the carpet heaven.
If like me you have collected this type of music from the age of 14 you will hear the difference on many tracks included here..thank heavens at last we have been granted a good 'Marvelettes' package that sounds as good as the brand new records did. I hope you enjoy it .

I agree with earlier review, a good compilation - pity about the omissions but all of their well known hits are here.
I bought this for Beechwood 4-5789 (note to proof readers of Dionne Bromfields CD: not Beachwood!!) and I'm very glad I did as it contains very few fillers - maybe a couple of B sides could have been dropped.
Personal favourites are Too many fish in the sea, You're my remedy, I'll keep holding on, Beechwood 4-5789 and of course Mr Postman.
Worth buying if you like 60's TM sound or Northern soul genre
