Priceless soul music - even if Tamla never felt so!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Motown Collection (Audio CD)
The comments in other reviews state correctly what great soul music sits on these two CDs catching in one swoop everything to release before its all too late, of Tamla's "missing" major white artiste.
The politics of Tamla are what one feels dripping out of this CD - the failure to promote her as shown by a rave concert appearance in the UK being an event that should have been a signal that was ignored but if exploited right could have produced a "new" star at a time when Tamla was beginning to recycle older acts. Put that alongside a number of these songs being great covers of contemporary songs (her second LP which was shelved till their impact had passed) or songs being taken and re-recorded by or with sections by other Tamla artistes ("Take me in your arms" being the most famous), demostrates what happened when you were not Diana Ross or did not have a strong producer such as Norman Whitfield.
This release is cause indeed to celebrate for a lady whose releases have always been sought after in the UK.
