SupremesSupremes Sing Country Western & Pop ... LP
Motown, 1965. Very Good- ... $8.99
A strange twist for the girls – not really because the material's country, but because the tunes selected are the kind of country tunes that would often be done in kind of a deep soul mode. There's still a sparkling quality on the album – and the girls' approach to the tunes is less ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SupremesSupremes Sing Rodgers & Hart ... LP
Motown, 1967. Sealed ... $19.99
Classier than usual for the girls – as they move over to Broadway for a set of tracks penned by the Rodgers & Hart team, done up in a smooth Motown style that was probably designed to crossover, but which did so less than some of their straighter soul work. Still, even though the idea's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Heavenly soul from the lovely Sweet Inspirations!

SweetwaterJust For You ... LP
Reprise, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
The group's second album – and a really sweet batch of tracks that mix together rock and soul influences with touches of west coast hippy jazz, in a style that's almost an LA answer to Rotary Connection, but without all the baroque arrangements.

RCA, 1969. Sealed ... $23.99
