Supremes – Produced & Arranged by Jimmy Webb

LP (Item 28513) Motown, 1972 — Condition: Very Good

An overlooked moment of 70s genius from The Supremes – and from the great Jimmy Webb as well – given that the pop studio genius wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! Jimmy had plenty of famous work under his belt by this point in time – including his famous collaborations with 5th Dimension – but the sound here is something completely different entirely, and very different than Webb's own records, as he was starting to find a voice of his own. Instead, the man is more than happy to let the vocals of the Supremes flow forth in this really heavenly way – with Jean Terrell now in the group instead of Diana, but never missing a beat in the lead – as she soars out in this sophisticated mix of strings and soul that's completely sublime! The songs are very fresh territory for the group, and the use of mostly Webb material on the record makes for a very unified set – almost the Supremes' answer to Minnie Riperton's fantastic first album with Charles Stepney, Come To My Garden. Titles include "Once In The Morning", "Cheap Lovin", "When Can Brown Begin", "Beyond Myself", "I Guess I'll Miss The Man", "All I Want", "I Keep It Hid", and "5:30 Plane".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
