    Wealth Of Soulful Treasures Unlocked On ‘Motown Unreleased 1968’ Collections
    The digital albums offer an astonishing 88 tracks from the Motown archives of 1968, all previously unissued.

    A veritable treasure trove of soulful gems from 1968, all of them previously unavailable in any format, has been unveiled on Motown Unreleased 1968, Volume 1 and Volume 2, out now on all digital platforms.

    The collections offer an astonishing 88 tracks from the Motown archives, 50 on the first set and 38 on the second, by a generous cross-section of artists signed to the company in the memorable year of 1968. Stars such as the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, the Temptations and Jr. Walker and the All Stars are joined by lesser-known names from the roster such as T&T, Debbie Dean, Suzee Ikeda, Paul Petersen, the Messengers and Willie Tyler.

    Among the items on Volume 1 that will fascinate Motown collectors and new admirers are Martha Reeves and the Vandellas’ version of Aretha Franklin’s ‘Don’t Let Me Lose This Dream’; a version of the Miracles’ ‘I Second That Emotion’ by the Utopians; a live recording of Jimmy Webb’s ‘By The Time I Get To Phoenix’ by Gladys Knight and the Pips; and the Four Tops’ early version of their single of that year, ‘Yesterday’s Dreams.’

    The treats on Volume 2 include Marvin Gaye’s first version of ‘It’s A Bitter Pill To Swallow’; his duet with Tammi Terrell, ‘Tears At The End Of A Love Affair’; the Temptations’ ‘All I Need Is You To Love Me’; Chris Clark’s reading of Bacharach & David’s ‘What The World Needs Now Is Love’; and a moment of Motown self-reference with Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers’ ‘Ode To The Supremes,’ produced by Berry Gordy.

    Don't listen to VMP. This is not the correct way to handle your records.

    Nice touch with the three Mo's though.

    If interesting to subscribe to youtube for access to buy Coachella tickets:

    The video platform’s Music service will also now serve as the exclusive playlist partner for Coachella.

    Nice. This song was a highlight from her Red Rocks set back in October, IMO.

    Excited for the new album. All three pre-released tunes have had a different vibe, IMO, but I've liked them all.

    Same here. This is an uncharacteristic new direction for SVE. Sonically it's bigger and darker. More keyboards and synths and she tackles an incredibly heavy subject matter in mental health. I'm all in!

    Following Bill on Twitter has been a very underwhelming experience so far.
