    The mono mix of Itching on the The Supremes Ultimate Collection is the most vibrant of any version I've heard. It just leaps out of the speakers. Must have been a floor filler in its day.

    I wonder if the release of Itching coincided with an increase of Motown's popularity in discos? If this is the case it might have been Motown's way of ensuring that the Supremes were heard in that...

    WOW!

    Are the original master tapes used for these refresh mixes or is it the reprocessing of the stereo mix of the orignal song?

    Very impressed!

    TYK1986, they were very engaging with the audience, everyone was up and dancing. A song that failed to chart, most surprisingly, is If Ever A Love There Was. Aretha is much loved in the UK so I would...

    My view is that the driving HDH/Funks songs had big appeal in the UK. The Four Tops released many songs in that format whereas The Temptations released more of a mix of song types. The Temptations...

    I remember a phrase used at the time in adverts that Walk Away Renee and If I Were A Carpenter were released as singles given "public demand" or similar. In the UK, at least, these were great choices...

    The covers on this album work well for me as the Funks are playing giving the songs a real Motown feel. This contrasts with the Supremes A Go-Go where LA musicians are playing.

    I never think that Tammi is forgotten in any way. I think she has a very special place in both Motown's history and the music industry generally. The results of her recording sessions with Marvin...

    A very poor choice of a Diana & Marvin song, especially for the UK where You Are Everything was the biggest hit and is still popular. Perhaps My Mistake and You Are Everything to cover both sides of...

    A fantastic album from start to finish. Really deserves a Deluxe Expanded version being released.

    It was this song and Baby Love being performed on Ready, Steady, Go in the UK that resulted in me being hooked on Motown.

    It's hard to imagine that in the UK there are many folk, of any age, who...

    For me there was space for both Diana and Tammi at Motown. Tammi's personal style could have developed into a more "in your face" artist - perhaps veering towards something akin to being Motown's...

    I always find it interesting in looking at how Diana fares in the USA verses the UK. Here she scored a massive hit with Not Over You Yet which appealed to the younger generation. She also had a very...

    LOL I agree with the longer version being the quality version for the album but for a snappy single I think the edits worked well, it reflected the punch and length of Motown songs from the golden...

    All of the parts were in the originals. The single version of Stoned Love reused an earlier section of the song at time 0:48 starting with "Don't you hear the wind blowing" again at time 2:10....

    The Onion Song was a big hit in the UK, I wonder where it could have reached in the chart with a Top Of The Pops promotion of the two singing it.

    With a suitable video I think this fantastic song would have been a big hit in the UK given Diana's enduring popularity here. It is a new and sexy angle to a duet for her. I agree with what was said...

    Without sounding too dramatic, I regard this song as the benchmark for all duets anywhere. Never has so much feeling been captured in one song. A wonderful legacy to Marvin and Tammi that nobody can...

    On the stereo mix you can clearly hear Marvin say "Tammi listen" just before he sings "Like an eagle protects his nest for you I'll do my best......" This really has to be one of the most personal...

    Sadly a short life but one that is so rich with talent, something that others with a full life are unable to achieve. Magnificent!

    I agree with this choice, a very commercial sounding song. I also would have liked Marvin & Tammi to have recorded it and released it as a single with a cheeky video.
