Motown 1972 (Jan - June),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Motown Singles - Vol. 12A: 1972 (Audio CD)
This is the second last edition of this series and so far the worst. I have given it 4 stars because the other volumes in the series are 5 stars. This volume concentrates on the first half of 1972 when Berry Gordy moved Motown to Los Angeles its o.k. and there are a lot of "lost singles" in this volume but the best tracks are from the old faithful stars - Temptations with "Take a look Around", Michael Jackson's " I Wanna be Where You Are " The Supremes " Automatically Sunshine" and the Jackson 5 " Lookin' Thru The Windows". There is some good stuff from Rare Earth, The Undisputed Truth ( What It Is ) and a female group called the Blackberries who provide the 7 " vinyl single that always accompanies these volumes. Gladys Knight's version of " Help Me Make it.... " is here as is Jnr. Walkers " Walk In The Night " . Not the best in this series but a must for completists.
