This 1965 album contains some of the Supremes best tracks the whole of side 2 of the original vinyl is great but the cover versions on side 1 "Yesterday" ," With a song" and " Without a Song ",spoil this collection their versions of "Unchained Melody " and " Stranger In Paradise " are not too bad but It does include one of my favourite Supreme's singles " My World Is Empty...... " I think this is the stereo version of this album but I couldn't swear on it . The remastered sound is really good .

As a big motown (and especially big Supremes) fan, I'm delighted they are slowly getting their catalogue remastered and re-issued with bonus tracks. "I Hear A Symphony", though not their most representative album (it's 50-50 soul-pop originals and American standards) it does showcase their versatility beautifully. The stereo mixes make those all-too-often drowned-out backing vocals finally audible (proving on songs like "Stranger In Paradise" that Flo and Mary WERE actually present in the studio) and makes soul stompers like "He's All I Got" and "Everything's Good About You" pack that extra bit of power-punch. Cannot wait for "Supremes A-Go-Go" and really hope and pray the long rumoured Florence Ballard-led "These Boots Are Made For Walking" isn't a myth after all. Top work to Hip-O-Select and Motown. And thanks to the seller for a great service!

Having the original on vinyl wanted a cd for the car. Can't fault the quality of the CD but I wonder why they fill them up with so many extra tracks which aren't needed. The record was a classic, that's all that was needed. They give a mono version (the original) followed by a stereo version on the same CD, then a second CD of some of the same with a few extras (I think maybe from a concert but I couldn't hear any crowd noise) I would have been happy with just the original.
