A hefty helping of The Marvelettes – a set that not only shows why the trio was one of Motown
's best groups of the 60s, but which also unearths a wealth of previously-unissued material too! The core of the package are a quartet of sublime albums by the girls – The Marvelettes, Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom, and The Return Of The Marvelettes – great "second chapter" work that shows the trio really stretching out in the best Motown
modes of the mid 60s – hitting grooves that complicate things nicely from the early days, with vocals that are even tighter than before, yet still packed with a hell of a lot of soul as well! Production is wonderful – equally tight, yet never too polished – and the set not only features all tracks from the albums, but also 10 more bonus tracks, and additional full mono LP versions of The Marvelettes and Sophisticated soul – both quite rare! And, if that's not enough, CD 4 features 24 previously-unissued tracks – all Motown
vault material from the 60s, with more than enough tracks to make up two more full records by the girls – a huge discovery in 60s soul music, and essential listening, even if you've got their records on vinyl. Unreleased titles include "Johnny Do Right", "Queen Of The Fools", "From Now On", "Three Months", "My Baby Won't Come Back", "Dance A While Cry A While", "I Can't Wait Till Summer Comes", "Why'd You Do It", "Change Of Heart", and "The Train That's Bringing My Baby". 4CDs, 119 tracks, and wonderful packaging too!
