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!
great remixed version of my world is empty without u with amplified backing vocals.an important point is frm in and out of love onwards mary and cindy rarely sang on and supremes singles with diana ross an interesting point however on love child and someday well be together both usa no 1s as these were credited to diana ross and the supremes did mary and cindy get royalties for tracks they didnt sing on

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.
