Universal Records....universally bad quality control & pressings,
This review is from: The Motown 7s Box Set: Rare And Unused [7" VINYL] (Vinyl)
I was soooo looking forward to this release but to my mind it has been nothing but a debacle from start to finish.. I preorderd mine but when they arrived, as other customers have complained, I had 2 x Barbara McNair and 0 x Marvin Gaye. Got a replacement from Amazon, this time with the correct discs. Played through them....The Temps track jumps. No Worries thinks I, swap that disc with the set I hung onto just in case there was a problem. The Temps disc in that pack jumps as well. They are both going back......I can live without them !!
Universal should be ashamed of the quality control and of the quality of the pressing.
If, like many of the purchasers, you frequent the [...] forum you will see a thread on there with many many disgruntled customers. 396 contibutions last time I looked. I really wanted this box set, had looked forward to receiving it for weeks only to be disappointed twice. I know there are some purchasers who bought them immediately, such was the demand for this limited 2000 distribution, but then wrapped them up as Xmas presents. There will many disappointed "soulies" on the big day me thinks.
