    Meet The Supremes

    The debut album by Diana Ross' Supremes originally came out in late 1962, right after Motown's boss Berry Gordy signed them and changed their name (the group was previously referred to as 'The Primettes') and immediately before Barbara Martin left the band (which cost her being cut from the legendary 3 on the barstools cover, and the loss of any royalties from the album). Mainly a collection of their early singles, Meet The Supremes features pure soul gems like I Want A Guy, Buttered Popcorn, (He's) Seventeen and many more little classics recorded by this quartet of seventeen year-olds who, although still far from the international star status they would soon achieve, helped pave the road to the definition of the classic Motown Sound. A must-have in any soul music collection!

    Studio One Soul

    Studio One was modeled on the record labels that had their own crack studio house bands, labels and studios like Stax in Memphis, Motown in Detroit, Muscle Shoals in Alabama and Criteria in Florida, so it was natural that at Studio One versions of some of the most influential soul records would be reworked in a Jamaican idiom for playing on the powerful sound systems, sometimes with different titles and sometimes with different composer credits, too, and some of the very best are rounded up here.

    The Mamas And The Papas

    In their brief but eventful reign as one of America's hippest and most popular recording acts, the Mamas and the Papas-Denny Doherty, Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips and main songwriter/sonic architect John Phillips-created a uniquely captivating brand of smart, harmony-laden pop that was consistently inventive and innovative, yet effortlessly commercial.


    Although their hitmaking heyday lasted less than three years, these trendsetting California dreamers left a long-lasting mark on popular music, releasing a series of hit singles and classic albums that remain deeply ingrained in the pop-culture consciousness four and a half decades later. Now, Sundazed Music brings the Mamas and the Papas' much-requested, long-out-of-print second and third albums back to the marketplace in LP editions that preserve their timeless brilliance for the ages.


    These beloved '60s classics have been lovingly restored by Sundazed Music to their original glory, on high-quality vinyl LP. This definitive edition faithfully reproduces the album's iconic original cover art, while careful mastering from the original reels guarantees that it's never sounded better than it does here.


    Released in the fall of 1966, the Mamas and the Papas' self-titled second album remains one of the foursome's most enduring and popular releases, and contains some of the most appealing and accomplished music that they ever produced. Along with the infectious hits "I Saw Her Again" and "Words of Love," The Mamas and the Papas features such John Phillips-penned favorites as "No Salt On Her Tail," "Dancing Bear" and "Trip, Stumble and Fall," along with distinctive covers of Martha and the Vandellas' Motown anthem "Dancing in the Street" and the Rodgers and Hart standard "My Heart Stood Still."

    The Spinners Spinners On Numbered Limited Edition 180g LP From Mobile Fidelity


    Spinners' Silky Smooth 1972 Self-titled Record Birthed The Philadelphia Soul Sound: Includes Top 5 Hits I'll Be Around And Could It Be I'm Falling In Love


    Mastered From The Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity 180g LP Presents Groundbreaking Soul Album With Pristine Detail, Soothing Warmth, And Involving Emotionalism


    Sweeping Strings, Funk Rhythms, Brassy Rejoinders, Immaculate Harmonies, And Satiny Lead Singing Fill Thom Bell's Melodic Arrangements: Few Albums Sound Creamier Than This Watershed Effort


    The timeless music and expert arrangements are about the only things smoother than the powder-blue suits sported by the Spinners on the cover of their resplendent self-titled 1972 record. The band's first album for Atlantic after departing Motown, Spinners ranks as an all-time soul classic - a filler-free set boasting immaculate harmonies, sweet melodies, and impeccably matched vocals. Thom Bell's flawless production puts it all over the top. Yielding an ideal balance of lushness and grit, the collaboration between the Detroit-based group and studio veteran yielded a record that birthed the celebrated Philadelphia Sound. Now, you can finally experience it in audiophile-grade sonics.


    Mastered from the original tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180g LP of Spinners presents the quintet's magnum opus with pristine detail, soothing warmth, and involving emotionalism. Free of previously constraining ceilings, highs soar to their intended heights. Each singer's voice can be distinctly heard amidst the expert mix. Superb dynamics, soundstaging, and imaging highlight Bell's gorgeous orchestrations as well as the Spinners' pillow-soft mellifluousness. Backing instrumentation, ranging from rolling bass lines and punctual horns to swaying strings and crisp high-hat beats, unfolds with reference-caliber purity and transparency. Not many 1970s albums of any genre sound silkier, creamier, or more tonally rich than this LP.


    While the career-defining performances within the grooves cannot be overlooked, Spinners remains equally notable for its historical importance. At the dawn of the 70s, Motown still held sway as the dominant soul style. Yet the Spinners' decision to move to Atlantic - prompted by a suggestion by Aretha Franklin - and refashion their approach with Bell signaled a sea change that ushered in a smoother, sweeter variety of R&B punctuated with sweeping strings, jazzy flourishes, brassy replies, and funk rhythms. Few, if any, vocal groups mesh these traits more convincingly, pleasingly, and naturally than the Spinners on this watershed effort.


    Anchored by Top 5 smashes like Could It Be I'm Falling In Love, Spinners signaled the beginning of a partnership with Bell that lasted seven years and elevated the band to stardom. Indeed, even in spite of the four hit singles, the record remains defined by an artistic consistency, watertight focus, and collective unity that make everything here deserving of close attention. Flush with catchy hooks and pop accents, each song is treated as a potential anthem. Laden with depth and richness, Bell's savvy, wide-open arrangements frame the Spinners' satiny singing with sensual class and refined delicacy.


    Heaven-sent voices do the rest. Making his first appearance on record as a member, Philippe Wynne treats the carefully honed material as a breakout session for his dulcet tenor on tracks such as One of a Kind (Love Affair). Not to be outdone, the equally measured Bobbie Smith mesmerizes with his deft phrasing, reedy timbre, and sparkling clarity, never finer than on the million-selling I'll Be Around. Solo or paired together, Wynne and Smith's glorious leads run the gamut from upbeat and optimistic to sad and forlorn, forming the backbone of a masterwork that addresses romance (Just You and Me Baby), regret (How Could I Let You Get Away), and social ills (Ghetto Child) with consummate passion.

    Jerk And Twine Time

    Out of print in its original LP format for nearly half a century, this vintage '60s gem has been sourced from the original mono tapes and pressed on 180 gram vinyl, with complete original cover art.

    Jerk and Twine Time emphasizes the raw immediacy of the Knickerbockers' origins as a live band. Beyond the dance-craze anthem "Jerk Town" and the venerable R&B instrumental "Twine Time," the set offers a memorable mix of the British Invasion, R&B and Motown covers that dominated the band's live repertoire at the time, with memorable renditions of the Zombies' "She's Not There" and the Kinks anthems "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night." They also tear into the Kingsmen's garage novelty "The Jolly Green Giant," the Motown standard "Money (That's What I Want)" and the R&B classics "Land of 1000 Dances" and "The 'In' Crowd."


    Although the Knickerbockers hailed from Bergenfield, New Jersey, anyone listening to the radio in early 1966 would have sworn that they were from Liverpool. That's when the band's overpoweringly infectious signature tune "Lies" stormed the AM airwaves, convincing many stateside listeners that they were hearing a fab new Beatles single.

    Give It Away

    After nearly a decade of plugging away in the Chicago soul scene, the Chi-Lites finally reached the charts in 1969 with the effervescent Top Ten R&B hit Give It Away. Hot on its heels followed this debut LP, a strong one thanks to the composing/performing/producing dynamo Eugene Record as well as the steady hand of producer Carl Davis. 24 Hours of Sadness is a copycat of their first hit, but just as enjoyable a performance and just as sparkling a production, while Let Me Be the Man My Daddy Was is a sweet ballad that avoids the expected melodramatic pitfalls. The group's runthrough of several Motown nuggets (My Whole World Ended, I Heard It Through the Grapevine, I'm Gonna Make You Love Me) is also surprisingly successful, with Record's crystal falsetto on the former making for a nice translation of David Ruffin's original. The quartet got a little groovy for That's My Baby for You,.... the Chi-Lites' first full-length was a bright spot for Chicago soul.

    Wish It Would Rain

    The Temptations Wish It Would Rain is a 1968 album by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. It was the final release from the group's Classic-5 era, during which David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, and Otis Williams constituted the Temptations' lineup.


    Wish It Would Rain also marks the last Temptations solo album to focus on the classic Motown Sound, and the last to feature production from Smokey Robinson.


    Included on Wish It Would Rain are the hit singles I Wish It Would Rain and I Could Never Love Another (After Loving You), both featuring Ruffin on lead vocals and co-written by Motown writer Roger Penzabene, who committed suicide on New Years Eve 1967 because of the breakup described in these two songs. I Wish It Would Rain's b-side, I Truly, Truly Believe, is a rare solo showcase for Franklin, the group's bass singer.


    The third single, Please Return Your Love to Me, features Kendricks on lead, and was released in July after Ruffin's departure. The song's b-side, How Could I Forget (led by Williams), is not included here, because it was newly recorded on June 29 to accompany the a-side.

    What's Going On

    Ranked 6/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Marvin Gayes Whats Going On was a landmark recording and is considered one of the greatest albums ever made. Rolling Stone named it Album Of The Year when it came out and, in 2003, it was ranked number 6, the highest for a non-rock album, in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Originally, the title cut was recorded as a single, and Motown chief Berry Gordy refused to release it, citing that it was too personal and political. What's Going On became Motown's fastest-selling single at that point, going to the number one spot on the R&B charts for five weeks and number two for three weeks on the Pop listings, which lead Gordy to request a full album's worth of material.


    What's Going On, the single, was recorded in June of 1970. The remainder of the album was recorded in March-May of 1971 and was released on May 21st of that year. It was produced entirely by Marvin Gaye.

    I Was Made To Love Her

    This album was rushed out to capitalize on the success of the title song, which was Stevie Wonder's biggest pop hit since Fingertips, Pt. 2, and would not be bettered until Superstition in 1972. There are several contributions from the Stevie Wonder team at Motown, covers of other Motown hits, and stabs at sounding like Ray Charles, James Brown, and Otis Redding. At 17, Stevie Wonder was becoming both a remarkable mimic, and an original talent on his own.

    I Want You

    The thirteenth studio album by American soul musician Marvin Gaye, released March 16, 1976, on Motown-subsidiary label Tamla Records. Recording sessions for the album took place throughout 1975 and 1976 at Motown Recording Studios, also known as Hitsville West, and Gaye's personal studio Marvin's Room in Los Angeles, California. The album has often been noted by critics for producer Leon Ware's exotic, low-key production and the erotic, sexual themes in his and Gaye's songwriting. The album's cover artwork adapts neo-mannerist artist Ernie Barnes's famous painting The Sugar Shack (1971). I Want You consisted of Marvin Gaye's first recorded studio material since his highly successful and well-received album Let's Get It On (1973). While it marked a change in musical direction for Gaye, departing from his trademark Motown and doo-wop-influenced sound for funky, light-disco soul, the album maintained and expanded on his previous work's sexual themes. I Want You has earned retrospective recognition from writers and music critics as one of Gaye's most controversial works and influential to such musical styles as disco, quiet storm, R&B, and neo soul.

    Marvin Gaye 1961 - 1965

    Universal Music will release Marvin Gaye's first seven studio albums in a new vinyl box set titled 1961-1965.


    The collection kicks off with the soul legend's Motown debut The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye (1961) which is full of jazz/pop standards from the like of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, while the second album, That Stubborn Kinda Fellow (1962) moves into R&B with Gaye co-writing many tracks including the song that launched Paul Young's career, Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home).


    When I'm Alone I Cry (1964) is a product of Gaye's early battles with Berry Gordy over direction, with the singer again reluctant to embrace a soul/R&B sound and instead focusing on being a jazz vocalist. Together (1964) with Mary Wells was Gaye's first top 40 album in the US pop charts and the collection of show tunes and standards did provide a couple of top 20 singles. Hello Broadway was a third album in that year and a switch back to soul/R&B for How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You (1965) gave Marvin Gaye his first really big hit single, thanks to the Holland-Dozier-Holland penned title track. This vinyl box is completed by Gaye's Tribute To Nat King Cole which was released in November 1965 just nine months after Cole's death.


    Marvin Gaye expert Harry Weinger has overseen this set which sees many of these early records back in print on vinyl for the first time in quite a while.

    Albums included:
    The Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye (1961)
    That Stubborn Kinda Fellow (1963)
    When I'm Alone I Cry (1964)
    Hello Broadway (1964)

    4 on Numbered Limited Edition 180 Gram LP from Mobile Fidelity


    #1 1981 Album Teems With Hits: Urgent, Waiting for a Girl Like You, Juke Box Hero


    Foreigner's Most Consistent, Economical, and Cleanly Produced Record


    Half-Speed Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Sonics Open Window to Mutt Lange's Direct Production


    Be A Juke Box Hero: Sound Will Rattle Your Walls and Shake Your Windows!


    Want to be a juke box hero? Heres your chance. Featuring Mutt Langes spotless production, contributions from Motown legend Junior Walker and new-wave icon Thomas Dolby, no less than three huge singles, and Foreigners most economical performances, 4 is classic-rock nirvana, a model of crystalline pop-rock melodies and lighter-flicking balladry. More than six million copies later, the 1981 record is still rightly discussed as a front-to-back masterpiece of precision, power, and economy. Its an album that demands to be experienced in the highest-possible fidelity.



    Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys 180g LP presents 4 in a room-filling, stadium-big sound that simply crushes whats heard on all prior versions. Replete with energetic rockers such as Urgent, Night Life, and Woman In Black, the record benefits from a sonic facelift that opens up the previously compressed dynamics, expands the dimensions of the soundstage, dials in a clear path to the instrumental images, and erases the ceiling that pressed down on Lou Gramms superhuman vocals. For the first time, Langes obsessive, detail-oriented production can be enjoyed in all its splendid glory.



    Fresh off blockbuster success with AC/DCs Back In Black, Lange uses his magic touch on 4, pairing with guitarist Mick Jones who, armed with the best batch of riffs of his career, shared a the producers sentiment for discipline, efficiency, and cleanliness. And so, on crisp tunes like Break It Up, pianos and hard-hitting guitars share the same space without ever impinging on one another or overstepping boundaries. The winning formula also propels Top 5 hits like the wildly funky Urgent, sent to new heights by Walkers dazzling saxophone solo, and the touching Waiting for a Girl Like You, a crossover smash that introduced Foreigner to soft-rock and adult-pop audiences.



    Simply stated, 4 has everything: Rowdy frustration-releasing cuts, fiery rock n roll tunes, heartfelt torch songs, and synth-drenched pop numbers. The playing throughout positively smokes, as the one-two punch of Gramm and Jones lands with both emotional and musical impact every time. There's not a single wasted note. And, reduced to a quartet, Foreigner seems bent on making more with less, just as Lange does with the polished production. This is 42 minutes of hard-rocking bliss.



    Accept no substitute. Mobile Fidelitys collectible audiophile edition will rattle your walls and shake your windows. Be prepared to tap every reserve available from your amplifiers. And play it LOUD!

    This Old Heart Of Mine

    This Old Heart of Mine is the fourth album released by The Isley Brothers in 1966, on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album, their first with the seminal Detroit-based music label, yielded the Isleys' biggest hit in their early period with the title track. Other charted singles including Take Some Time Out for Love and I Guess I'll Always Love You. The album's cover was not controversial at the time, but was criticized years later by activists because it did not depict the three African American brothers, instead using a picture of two white teenage lovers on a beach. Defenders say this was/is totally irrelevant since it was an artistic choice only. The Isley Brothers are today considered another one of the seminal Detroit groups of their era.

    I Hear A Symphony

    Like no other, Motown's founder Berry Gordy knew how to market 'his' acts. The Supremes (later named Diana Ross & The Supremes) were his mainstream Pop offering, bridging the gap between Soul and popular music, while even incorporating Classic themes (like A Lover's Concerto was inspired by Bach).


    I Hear A Symphony (1966) contains some of the best tunes written by famed producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland, as well as great cover versions of popular songs like Unchained Melody and the Beatles' Yesterday.

    Talking Book

    Ranked 90/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    Stevie Wonder established an incredible precedent between 1971 and 1976, releasing six of the most groundbreaking, genre-blurring, genius albums ever made. Composed and written at a time when his marriage was his collapsing, the largely uplifting and eminently soulful Talking Book is arguably the best of those trailblazing records. Wonder manages to not only to restore faith in love, he also includes smart political commentary, personal-is-political messages, empowering statements, and exorcises the frustrations associated with heartbreak. Few efforts are more emotionally intense and consistently enriching.


    In addition to striking diversity and passionate reach, Talking Book continues to speak to listeners nearly 40 years later because of how much of Wonder himself is invested in the songs. With everlasting proclamations like "I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will be Forever)" and "You and I (We Can Conquer the World," Wonder transcends his excruciating pain and clung to the concept of love as a higher power. Similarly, he stakes an equal part of himself in fare that confronts woe head-on ("Tuesday Heartbreak") and reels off one of the most famous ballads ("You Are the Sunshine of My Life") in history.


    Musically, Wonder is clearly tapped into a spiritual plane, the arrangements encompassing an array of moods and styles: rocking and funky ("Superstition"), mellow and poignant, grooving and exuberant. Jeff Beck's guitar solo on "Lookin' for Another Pure Love" takes the song to a new level, and guests David Sanborn, Buzzy Fenton, and Ray Parker Jr. round out what's an almost impossibly perfectly unified album.

    1. You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
    2. Maybe Your Baby
    3. You And I (We Can Conquer The World)
    4. Tuesday Heartbreak
    5. You've Got It Bad Girl

    Innervisions

    Ranked 23/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    The sixteenth album by American musician Stevie Wonder, released August 3, 1973 on Motown Records; a landmark recording of his "classic period".The nine tracks of Innervisions encompass a wide range of themes and issues: from drug abuse in "Too High," through social anger in "Living for the City," to love in the ballads "All in Love is Fair" and "Golden Lady."


    As with many of Stevie Wonder's albums the lyrics, composition and production are almost entirely his own work, with the ARP synthesizer used prominently throughout the album. This instrument was a common motif among musicians of the time because of its ability to construct a complete sound environment. Wonder was the first black artist to experiment with this technology on a mass scale, and Innervisions was hugely influential on the subsequent future of commercial black music. He also played all or virtually all instruments on six of the album's nine tracks, making most of Innervisions a representative one-man band.

    1. Too High
    2. Visions
    3. Living For The City
    4. Golden Lady
    5. Higher Ground

    Continuing their commitment to celebrating and shining a light on classic and influential music from Detroit, Third Man Records is honored to be able to re-introduce the world to the undeniable importance of the Detroit Cobras.


    As one of the earliest salvos in the great Detroit garage explosion of the turn of the century, the Detroit Cobras Mink, Rat or Rabbit is a landmark album. Comprised solely of cover songs (as has always been the band's MO) the Cobra's spirited takes on Motown classics (''I'll Keep Holding On'' originally by the Marvellettes), garage punk laments (''Bad Girl'' originally known as ''Bad Man'' by the Oblivians) girl group Tear-Jerkers (''Easier to Cry'' originally by the Shangri-Las) and New Orleans soul standards (''Breaka-way'' originally by Irma Thomas) and the end result is nothing short of a staple that any record collection is empty without.

    The Essential Going Back

    Remastered by Nick Davis


    I decided to call this version of 'Going Back' 'The Essential Going Back,' Phil explained. In retrospect, I included too much music on the original version, and I believe that too much is not always a good thing. Hence this trimmed down selection of my favorite Motown songs.


    Originally released in 2010, Going Back was Phil Collins' first studio album since 2002 and saw him back at #1 on the charts. This album was a personal labor of love project that found him faithfully recreating the soul gems that played such an influential role in his musical life.


    This is one of the last releases in Collins' Take A Look At Me Now series. Each album in the series has been remastered by Grammy-nominated Nick Davis. Each album features a bold artwork concept in which Collins has recreated his poses from the original album covers with new photography that was shot in the present day.


    This will be released as 180 gram heavyweight audiophile vinyl of the remastered album.

    1. Going Back (2016 Remastered)
    2. Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue) [2016 Remastered]
