The Marvelettes are, arguably, Motown's most underserved artists. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on original albums of theirs, especially late-vintage Marvelettes (The Marvelettes '67, Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom, The Return...) you will hear wonderful, soulful vocals and some great songs and arrangements. This was more their "Smokey Robinson period", when he payed great attention to Wanda Rogers and her "country soul" voice, and it is gentle, soulful, and somewhat less polished (in a positive sense) music for Motown at this time.
I was excited to see this release, wondering if this more sophisticated period in their career was represented. What I've discovered is that none of their periods is particularly well featured, and their later period is almost non-existent.
Hip-O Select was rumored to be working on a box set of the Marvelettes, that would've included their first albums in their entirety (including their hard-to-find Sing album, as well as Greatest Hits). I was all excited, because I was hoping that then they might release a Volume II of the project, including all those late-era albums. But it seems as though all of these projects are a no-go, and all we have left is this skimpy assortment. They (and of course, we) deserve much better.
