Motown Legends - Polygram Special Projects CD releases.

Back in the mid-1990's Polgram Special Projects released a series of compilation CDs. I have two of them of to refer to for this inquiry. The Marvelettes [Beechwood 4-5780] and [Playboy]. The other group CD is Diana Ross & The Supremes [My World Is Empty Without You] and [I Hear a Symphony]. The Marvelettes has three *bonus tracks --- You're The One, Everybody Knows But You, and When I Need You. The Supremes also has three *bonus tracks --- I'll Set You Free, The Land of Make Believe, and Mr. Blues. Cary Mansfield was the compiler for both of these.

These rarely get any discussion. Does anyone know of a complete official listing of all that were released? Often I look at discographies of releases, i. e. Randy's Rodeo.com and they are not included in those categories he featured that include a picture of what the releases look like.

I think they are a great item to possess. What does anyone else know about this series and/or what do they think about them?

Paul Riser tribute

Did anyone beside me join this presentation today, wow it was remarkable. Had Ray Parker Jr., Paul Riser, Jack Ashford . Even had cameos from Bob Olhsson , Ed Wolfrum, Stevie Wonder and Richie Sambora and many more. Three plus hours of Motown history- remarkable, a once in a life time.

Songs with dances in the title

Mickey's Monkey
Twistin' Postman
Come On Do the Jerk
Can You Jerk Like Me?

All of the above songs were original compositions released on various Motown labels, and all contain the names of dances.

I know there are more. Can you name more songs released by Motown that contain the names of dances that are NOT covers?

My Guy - Miss Ray Pressing

Is anyone able to identify/confirm the bootleg copies of Mary Wells "My Guy" that were pressed up by Miss Ray?

There's a strong case for the white label copy below that has no promotional/demo/audition/sample copy text, weird catalog number formatting and typeface, slightly lower sound quality, and although it looks like an ARP press, no ARP stamp is present in the runout.
