Best Of The Beatles Songs Sung By Motown's Greatest Stars

LP (Item 497013) Motown, 1960s — Condition: Near Mint-

(80s pressing. Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Finished Touch

Need To Know You Better
Motown, 1978. Very Good
A surprising lost disco charmer from 70s Motown – one of those records we passed by for years, but which we find out we love once we get the needle into the groove! The sound here is funky disco at its best – equal parts uptempo soul and bass-heavy club – done in a style that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1964. Very Good
It's only 1964, early in Motown's history, but Mary's managed to rack up a considerable batch of hits – no surprise since she was one of the label's best female singers of the early years! This set features 12 classics by Mary – including "You Beat Me To The Punch", "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross

Boss
Motown, 1979. Near Mint-
Diana Ross gets some great assistance on this set – the club classic team of Ashford & Simpson, who help give Diana a groove that's very much like their own great work of the time! Tunes are long and clubby, but never throwaway pop disco – and with Ashford & Simpson at the helm ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Supremes A Go Go
Motown, 1966. Very Good
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1985. Very Good+
A stone classic from that great early 80s run by DeBarge – that time when they were really reinventing the group soul sound for a new generation, finding a way to bring back older sweet soul modes, but with a very different twist! The record's as strong as its predecessors, although slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tops

Nature Planned It
Motown, 1972. Very Good
Why did Motown ever let the Four Tops get away? This album was their last for the label – and it's an excellent one, filled with soul, sweetness, and some of the best arrangements the group had in their later years! The soul component is super-high – with tight group instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

For You
Motown, 1974. Sealed Gatefold
Solid 70s work from Eddie Kendricks – still super-strong in the vocal department, but perhaps a bit less spectacular on the arrangements, at least in comparison to some of his other work at the time. The cuts are less in the boogie mode than in a complicated lush soul style – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Supremes

Touch
Motown, 1971. Very Good+
Post-Diana Ross work by The Supremes, but a really great little album – and one that possibly even draws more on a harmony style without the famous diva in the lead! The sound here is rich and full – arranged by Jerry Long and David Van DePitte – and produced by Frank Wilson with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Commodores
Motown, 1977. Very Good+
A classic self-titled set from The Commodores – not their debut album, but a record that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dazz Band

Hot Spot
Motown, 1985. Very Good
The Dazz Band are in a definite hot spot here – the group's final album for Motown, and a record that's filled with the kind of catchy crossover funk they did better than most! The set snaps into a groove right from the very first note – with that electro funk that Motown served up big ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gamble, Late 60s. Very Good
Great compilation of some of the biggest and best tracks from the early days of this Philly soul group. Groovy East coast soul cuts, with a nice late 60s roots of Philly sound to them. 10 numbers in all: "Cowboys To Girls", "Me Tarzan, You Jane", "Love Is Like A Baseball ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Omni, Early 70s. Very Good
A dozen of Blue Magic's finest harmony soul numbers: "Sideshow", "Stop To Start", "Spell", "What's Come Over Me", "Three Ring Circus", "Tear It Down", "Look Me Up (Remix)", "Welcome To The Club", "Chasing ... LP, Vinyl record album
