Marvin Gaye's "Volume Two" How Rare?

A couple of years ago, I spotted this great 8 CD set featuring Marvin's best work from 1966-70, including all three albums with Tammi, the Kim Weston album, and four of his solo albums. At the time I noticed there was also a Volume 1 set covering his work from 1961-65 but I was not as interested in that.

To the best of my recollection, I only paid somewhere in the range of $20-25 for this set, but now it seems like you can't find it at all and if you can it is much more expensive. So was this a limited edition? Why was it so cheap? Anybody else have it?

And more importantly, how many more similar Motown products are out there and any chance we will continue to get more? I would jump for example at a Vandellas, Supremes, or Tops box set like this and maybe even some others.

Billy Eckstine _ Motown Collection

pent an enjoyable day compiling a CD-R on Billy Eckstine . I wanted to concentrate on Motown only songs, leaving the standards alone. I was worried that I would not have enough tunes to fill a CD-R.
In the end , I ran out of room.....had to leave a few off, which was a shame.
I really enjoy MR. B's Motown material. What a shame the company didn't find the right platform/promotion for him...I'm sure there were some potential hits here....possibly they chose the wrong 45s?

My self-made Mock-Up-Albums and Expanded Editions

Hi everyone,


Iím a big Motown fan (Especially Diana Ross and the Supremes - and especially after 1966) but like most of other fans Iím a bit upset with Universal who releases less and less of Motown Rarities and if, mostly only digitally.
Donít get me wrong, Iím happy with everything we get, but I wish it would be a bit more.
But anyway, instead of waiting for something that will never come, I thought I made some designs for myself.


Though I love to have all music from one timeline on one or two CDs I created also some Kim Weston Fantasy albums as well as the two unreleased Brenda LPs with my favorite songs as Ąoriginal LPď and the rest from the timeline as bonus tracks. Like a real expanded edition.
I also created lots of Diana Ross/Supremes designs and started with doing expanded edition for the Marvelettes Albums. I love the the two sets, but I donít like that most of the tracks are distributed on different CDs on the sets. Thatís why I have doing my own Expanded editions with all tracks that belongs to the album.
Today I wanted to show you some of the designs I have done.


All of them are made in beautiful digipacks - I found a printer that also printed small editions - so I created them for printing. BUT I havenít print them yet.


Maybe you also have some dream albums you loved to have as physical CDs and you always would loved to have :-)


If anyone is interested I can also post the tracklists I have done for these albums :-)
