    I say it's worth it for Side 1 (all of those songs are great IMHO).

    OK. now I'm in.
    Edit: Anyone know a good place to order it? I don't have a record store that participates in RSD nearby.

    Aside from the Original's track have all these songs been previously released?

    Yes as far as I can see in one format or other.

    You can't usually order Record Store Day releases ahead of time, but the items are then available if they don't sell out. I don't think this release would sell out, as RSD releases tend to focus on hard rock or indie rock, more than Soul or R&B. A few years ago I had no trouble finding the special release of the George Clinton/Parliament Live set, following Record Store Day.

    Amoeba Records in the Los Angeles area is usually a good place to find these following RSD, and their prices are good and shipping is free on all purchases.

    I love that Marvin Gaye track... it's on The Master 4 cd box set

    I wonder why the title of Side B Track 2 was altered from the 1969 Unreleased Motown listing? I see it incorporates the alternate title.

    5. The Temptations / Pretty Little Brown Skin Girl*
    (Arthur Crier-Alva Springer-Al Cleveland)
    Produced by Arthur Crier A.K.A.: Id Walk A Country Mile
    Assigned to the Utopians; reassigned to Temptations.

    In the song, Dennis sings "And I'd walk me a mile just to see her smile" (1:47-1:51)
    and at 2:28 the Temps sing "walk a country mile" then Dennis echoes "walk me a mile' and both sing 'just to see her smile'

    Which title will be incorporated in Don't Forget the Motor City? Or will both?

    A lot of the tracks on the 1969 Unreleased collection are being published for the first time and the titles needed to be solidified. Apparently, the publisher has settled on "Pretty Little Brown Skin Girl" for this track.

    I think Jack020 ended up with some bad info. (Not the user's fault, seems like some UMe confusion.)

    Previously unreleased stereo mixes:
    "Without You (My World Is Lonely)"
    "For Once In My Life"
    "Pretty Little Brown Skin Girl"
    "Touched By Love"
    "You Took Me This Far (Take Me All the Way)"

    Previously unreleased:
    "If I Ever Lose This Heaven"

    At least this is how I understand it.

    I can't wait for this one. Usually I let them RSD released pass me by, but not in this case!
