    In Loving Memory Expanded Edition

    I saw on Facebook that "In Loving Memory" Expanded Edition is coming out as a Digital release with 34 tracks.

    Does anyone know the release date of this ? Or what the track list will be ? Supposedly there will be 9 unreleased songs on this release. Doesn't sound like it will have the mono version of the original release.

    I was also wondering why "In Loving Memory" didn't come out until 1968, when it was in their catalog in 1966 and shown on the inner sleeves starting in 1966?

    In the Motown Unreleased 1968 thread, Keith Hughes said that the expanded IN LOVING MEMORY would be released this month, but didn't give a specific date or a track listing. I'm assuming it is the original album, along with the tracks from MOTOWN UNRELEASED 1966, plus maybe some newly found tracks. Maybe some more recording was done in 1968? I repeat, I am just assuming.

    I don't recall seeing IN LOVING MEMORY on any Motown inner sleeves until circa 1968. The notes in MOTOWN UNRELEASED 1966 says that the album was originally scheduled for a 1966 release, but then producer Harvey Fuqua changed direction and the concept went from small accompaniments to a full orchestra. That might account for the delay of its release and why it has an older catalog #.

    Also especially since Loucye Gordy Wakefield, Berry Gordy's sister whom the album is in tribute to, passed away in 1965.

    You beat me to it, Rjacks! Thanks. I think the answers to the questions above are all on the site. I believe we've cleared the Vaults for tracks that relate to this project, and have even included the two previously-issued stereo mixes (so the total is now 35). Everything else is mono, and for the album we went back to the master tapes, so this isn't just a recycle of the 1995 CD with bonus tracks.

    Keith, is there any reason that the 1995 artwork for this was used instead of the original 1968 artwork?

    My source was 7digital NZ.When I first entered "In Loving Memory" other titles appeared when I added "expanded" up it came!

    Thanks Roger, it is also on Spotify if you search as 'Motown Gospel – In Loving Memory: Expanded Edition' I ordered Motown Gospel 2 CD from Switzerland yesterday, it has a Four Tops track I don't remember, quite good price as well!

    I think Motown Gospel 2 is basically the same as the "In Loving Memory" CD so the track by the Four Tops would be "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

    Keith - why would the stereo release of Gladys Knight & The Pips "How Great Thou Art" be omitted?

  19. #19
    This release was not intended to be a "Complete", only an "Expanded", version of the album. Stereo versions of "Sparrow" and "He" had appeared on the 2007 reissue of "In Loving Memory", so it was thought they were appropriate "bonus tracks".

    As far as I know the stereo "How Great Thou Art" has only ever appeared in digital format on the 1995 CD issue of "Rock Gospel: The Key To The Kingdom", and no doubt the digitisation was typical of the day - we'd likely have had to re-digitise it, so not really worth the effort just for one more bonus stereo version. Perhaps there'll be a re-issue of "Rock Gospel" some day ... !

    Thanks Keith. I'm happy with my "Key To The Kingdom" CD and not bothered if it doesn't see another issue - there's plenty more stuff I'd like to see first on CD. It's amazing how these albums have filtered out over time.
