    Unless they stumble upon something they don't know about, "Lover Boy" is the last one. Her total output was only about 11 tracks from '63 to '65.

    A shame as I like all her tracks.

    It would have been great to have added a color tint to the photo to have similar looks with volumes 1 & 2.

    Keith announced in the "Syreeta The Rita Wright Years 1967-1970" thread that Vicki Fox, the talented artist who brought color to his Motown Girls covers, had died before its release.

    I see th'THE MARVELETTES' has now replaced 'THE SUPREMES' in the 'Featuring unreleased recordings by' heading for "Baby I've Got It". I'm glad that you were able to alter it (and I'm sure the notations and essay) before it all went to print.

    Why were the Supremes taken off the release?

    I hope that Keith Hughes will answer that question here or in the cd booklet.

    Wow, the Marvelettes given the nod over the Supremes! How weird is that! I like it! LOL

    It was actually LaBrenda's "It's Alright" that replaced the Supremes - a late clearance, and a completely unreleased track. Although we cleared the Supremes' "Merry Christmas", in the long wait to clear enough tracks for an album, a duet version came out on the RealGone album, so we decided that rather than compete, we'd offer something completely different.

    I'm sure Ace will do a refund for anyone who was buying the set just for this one track.

    So the complete Christmas album isnt really complete because we are missing the Mary Wilson solo of "The Christmas Song"...oh well i suppose i can wait till this Christmas when we get the expanded edition of the expanded edition of the complete Christmas album.

    Hi Keith,
    I realize that sometimes decisions are guided by many factors. But I'm not sure if I'm following the logic here.
    LaBrenda's "It's Alright" was listed along with The Supremes' "The Christmas Song as 2 of the 25 tracks for 'Baby I've Got It! More Motown Girls' as originally posted at the Ace website. The original write-up made specific mention of the Mary Wilson lead on the track.
    And then suddenly the track vanished, the write-up was altered, and the cover amended.
    Your explanation does not seem to make sense to me.
    I'm hoping that Andy Skurow or George Solomon asked you to (quietly) pull the track
    [if it is in fact a complete Mary lead, a question which I asked early on which was never answered] from the Ace cd because they were planning to include it as a bonus track on a future Supremes expanded edition.
    That might explain the 'not wanting to duplicate' part of your explanation. And knowing how they too are sworn to secrecy by Universal...
    Or then again, it may only be wishful thinking.

    Guys, in Ace's defense, please keep in mind that we constantly badger Keith Hughes and others for early information, when is stuff coming out, when will we see a track listing, etc. These last minute decisions likely happen in many such releases. Of course, some of us will be disappointed that a certain track had to be left off but please remember what hard work it is to even get this stuff out there. So just maintain perspective. The glass is still half full.

    @longtimefan, I wasn't referring to you or Luckyluckyme specifically. I do it too. It's natural for us collectors to want all the information early. No offense meant.

    Personally I couldn't care less about another Supremes Christmas track, Mary Wilson or otherwise. I am buying the set for what it is (even with The Marv's STG) but if folks don't want it either don't buy it or request a refund if you're miffed about not getting what you thought or what was planned. These people do their best to bring us goodies. I'm happy with the work they do.

    I just saw on Amazon.com that it will be released 4/6/2018 and the cost is $22.13 with a guarantee that if the price drops you will get the new price -- and it won't go up. They are taking pre-orders.

    DirectToU, LLC sites such as Blow It Outta Here and Import Cd's are listing it on sale at $10.49, quite a substantial savings.
