Motown 50


  

The remastering is SUPERB. Largely stereo as well, which is personally to my taste.

Music-wise it really needs no introduction. All the usual suspects are here, the label’s biggest hits - “Baby Love", “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “What Becomes Of The Broken-Hearted “, “This Old Heart Of Mine”, “I Want You Back” etc.

What is a bit bizarre, is that, all of a sudden, on disc three, the monster hits disappear and are replaced by some frankly odd inclusions - a cover of “Jumping Jack Flash” by Thelma Houston, for example. Or The Supremes doing The Beatles’ “Come Together”. If you are going to include a Supremes track, why not use their big chart hit “Stoned Love”?

Small nit-picking though. Overall a great collection of superb remasters.


B+
