    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?

  11. #11

    Do you have the link as I cannot find any reference to this on the UK 7.digitial site

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

  16. #16
    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!

  17. #17
    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.

    Anyone know what the problem is re UK release? Licensing?

    Tempted to say God Knows...in keeping with the situation.

    I bought the "In Loving Memory (Expanded)" download on the day it was released on Amazon back in December. CD1 -- Track 4 -- The Temptations' "The Lord's Prayer" -- has a serious glitch whereby the music stops midstream and is replaced by several seconds' worth of horrible hissing. I'm surprised that no one else here has mentioned it. I do know of one other person who experienced the same thing, so I know it wasn't due to an error here on my end. Keith, can you help with this problem?

  25. #25
    I have brought this problem to the attention of someone at Universal who will know how to deal with it. The track was OK when it left me for mastering, but clearly something has gone wrong since then.

  26. #26
    Thanks, Keith. I'll sit tight until I hear from you again.

    I’llnever part with my vinyl copy of the original album (because it was given me bynone other than Mrs Esther Gordy Edwards herself) but I’m intrigued by commentshere that large parts of this expanded version are available on CD – my preferredmedium. I’d be eternally grateful if any member here could tell me what thoseCDs are so I can try Amazon or Ebay. Many thanks in advance.

    The "In Loving Memory" album has seen 2 CD releases. The first in the 90s was all mono. Much later it was issued with a couple of tracks in stereo (see earlier in the thread) and I believe this version is sometimes know as Motown Gospel 2. Many of the unreleased tracks were on the Motown Unreleased" 1966 set which was also released on CD

    Hi,

    This is my first post so please go gentle on me if I get anything wrong!

    I have been following this thread for a while, and like others, was waiting for a release in the UK. Finally it appeared last week and I started looking around for the best deal. (iTunes at £10.99, Amazon at £10.29, and Google Play and 7digital both at £8.99)

    I was about to purchase it from 7digital when I read the post from “Philles/Motown Gary” concerning a glitch in the Temptations track “The Lord’s Prayer” – many thanks for the pointer.

    iTunes and Google Play have 90 second clips and both contain this glitch, just after the start of the verse beginning “Give Us Our Daily Bread”. Inconveniently the clips from Amazon and 7digital only last 30 seconds and both stop a few seconds short so I don’t know if there is a problem or not.

    With an acknowledgement to Keith Hughes who has flagged this up with Universal, is there anyone on the list who has been able to download this album in the UK which does not contain this glitch, or did they all come from the same source?

    Hi reachoutuk. And welcome! Don't worry. Most of us here don't bite. If somebody should bark at you, just bark back and "get it out'cha system", as Millie Jackson would say!

    You're welcome for the heads up regarding the glitch in The Temptations' "The Lord's Prayer". I was surprised that no one else noticed it. I guess it isn't exactly a big seller. I bought the original LP back in 1968 when it was first released, and then I bought both of the CD versions that came out over the past few years. The only reason I bought this latest version was out of loyalty to Motown for the previously-unreleased tracks of which I haven't even listened to the second half of the set yet. I guess I'm burned out on "In Loving Memory", especially when there are so many other Motown albums waiting for a physical CD or download reissue for the first time ever (i.e., Blinky, remaining albums by The Originals and Jr. Walker. In the meantime, we'll just have to sit patiently until we hear back from Keith regarding the "In Loving Memory" glitch.

    Thanks Philles/Motown Gary for your kind welcome.

    You've given me the idea that perhaps I should get the 1995 CD version of this album as I prefer physical releases where available.

    Similar to yourself, I am willing and grateful to collect anything that comes out of the Motown vaults in order to hopefully help create a demand for further releases. Having said that, once I get this download it is unlikely to be at the top of my playlist, more a case of hearing artists singing in a different style from time to time.

    DFTMC doesn't say that Martha & Vandellas' "It Is No Secret What Love Can Do" is previously unreleased, but I can't find any other reference to it. Has it been out before?

  33. #33
    Keith, has there been any word yet on correcting that unfortunate glitch in The Temptations "Lord's Prayer" segment of "In Loving Memory" (Expanded) download?

    DRATS rendition of "He" is good; kinda reminds me of "Kingston Town" by UB40 lol.
