These are the rejects!!!,

This review is from: A Cellarful Of Motown! (Audio CD)
I only got this because I really like the Velvelettes and it was so cheap. But I'm amazed at the quality throughout. Only Motown could have thought these records weren't worth releasing.
Most of the recordings aren't obvious single hits so maybe that was why they were buried. The best tracks come from Motown's "second division" such as Brenda Holloway and Jimmy Ruffin, though the standout for me is Gladys Knight and the Pips' "If you ever get your hands on love".
Most albums dug up from the archives are just for completists (like me) but this should work for anyone who loves 60s soul.
