While Thereís A Place For Us had a track listing, most of the unreleased lps didnít. And in most cases we have more than enough tracks to make one. So what would u have released?

Ballad and Blues
1. This is it
2. He means the world to me
3. Iíve giving you your freedom
4. A breathtaking guy
5. Iím the exception to the rule
6. Long gone lover

1. Bye baby
2. Everyday Iíll love you more
3. Mr blues
4. Come on boy
5. My imagination
6. I idolize you

The tracks to what would have been the album are recognised in DFTMC - "My Imagination" shows, for example "unreleased; LP [[M): Motown MT610 Supremes Sing Ballads And Blues" so the track list is known.

Sing Ballads & Blues
The Supremes
Bootleg Motown CD

02 My Heart Can't Take It No More
03 Come On Boy
04 My Imagination
05 I Idolize You
06 Lazy Bones
07 After All
08 You're Gonna Come To Me
09 The Tears
10 You Didn't Care
11 Funny How Time Slips Away
12 Heavenly Father

It's a similar story for the Disney album for which the tracks are also recognised on DFTMC. Some pics of the bootleg here.

Yes that's unfortunate - and the catalogue number is also wrong at 659 [[which is the Rodgers & Hart album). Disney is 671. Otherwise, a beautiful piece of work.

In the WDOLG 40th expanded edition it lists a couple tracks but not 12. In none of the official published material has there been a listing of the full lp

But even w Disney and sing broadway to Hollywood the group recorded more than enough tracks. The lps would have been single disc and so only holding 11 or 12 songs. So the question still remains as to what our recommendations are for the releases

Well, we know the track list for There's A Place For Us. But what i wonder is if the mono masters exist and if they are any different than the stereo mixes. In 1965, Mono mixes were more often different than the same as stereo. So can we get the mono to complete that album?

interesting question! hadn't thought of that but given all of the other lps from this period, that very well could be

Also there's the Broadway to Hollywood set. in addition to all of the canned tracks from There's A Place, they'd recorded:

The Happening
All I Know About You
Beach Ball
Surfer Boy
Dr Goldfoot
If I Ruled the World
Strangers in the night
Sound of music
tender is the night
what now my love
Who can i turn to
More
Somewhere
Shadow of your smile
Fancy passes
On a clear day [[no lead recorded though)

That's a lot of potential tracks. The first five i listed all sort of fit one style - bright, bouncy, campy. the remaining 11 are more mature, MOR etc. and of course had they not released the R&H set, some of those could have been combined with these to make a solid set.

IMO the B2H tracks just aren't as strong as the R&H ones. some are really quite strong but others are just ok.
