The Supremes take on the classy Copa nightclub – and really bring down the house with a stunning mix of warmth, charm, and soul – especially on this incredible expanded edition from Hip-O Select! The original album is perhaps one of the "livest" of Motown live albums from the time – done in a spread-out style that features a lot more songs than some of their other live records, really giving the full scope of the show at the club. Plus, there's lots of crowd noise, bits of speaking from the girls, and an overall approach that's fluid and natural – very much a concert on record! The folks at Motown and Hip-O Select clearly have the deep love and respect for set that it deserves – they really go all out here! Disc 1 kicks off with the original stereo LP tracklist, including "The Boy From Ipanema", "Put On A Happy Face", "I Am Woman", "Baby Love", their wonderful Sam Cooke medley, "Queen Of The House", and "Back In My Arms Again", "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You" and more. Those are followed by 10 bonus tracks: alternate mono mixes of standouts from the original album, plus some that were left out, including "Nothing But Heartaches" and "Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)". As great as the original album is, and as fully formed as it feels, it's not the compete show – and that's what you get on Disc 2 – all 21 tracks (more if you count the medley) and 61 minutes of it. Beautiful packaging and detailed booklet, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
