    Unreleased Motown 1970 Wish List

    I'm just thinking and now wishing out loud about what I would love to see on Unreleased Motown 1970. I know we're a few months out, but if the producers of this series happen to read this, here's my wish list of artists I'd like to hear from:

    Stevie Wonder
    GK&P
    Blinky
    Syreeta
    Rose Batiste
    Jean & The Supremes
    Diana Ross - live tracks from her first solo concert
    Rare Earth
    The Hearts of Stone
    Yvonne Fair
    Valerie Simpson

    Who would everybody else like to see on the next release?

    There are definitely more MR&TV tracks in the vault. Here's one of them

    Non-NW produced Temptations, The Originals, Fantastic Four, and of course, my boys Marvin and Stevie in what is probably the last recordings before taking full control of their own projects.

    Did the Temptations work with other producers besides NW in 1970? I may be wrong but I don't think there have been any unreleased tracks from the 70's Temptations to ever come out of the vaults (not including extended mixes). If my memory is correct, only a small handful of unreleased tracks by the group have been found that were recorded after David left the group. The Unreleased 1969 collection had a couple of unreleased tracks and that's all I know of.

    The lack of J5 tracks on Unreleased 1969 makes me wish they'll be some on there or at least a standalone release. I've heard they recorded hundreds of songs during their stint at Motown.

    Ivy Hunter
    Originals
    Chuck Jackson...if any left..doubtful

    I've read there's an unreleased version of Up The Ladder to the Roof with an additional verse. It would be nice if that's included.

  10. #10
    Yes there's a longer version of Up the Ladder...
    I'll take an expanded Right On.

  11. #11
    Only 9 months to wait

  12. #12
    Blimey...I'd bet a few women will be alarmed to hear that!!

    Smile Another Chuck?!

    “Chuck Jackson...if any left..doubtful”


    Now now Larry, don’t be so doubtful about Chuck Jackson and any unreleased.... there’s a fab version of Windmills of Your Mind which is worth a release.

    Mind you, I would have put it on his Anthology if I had known about it at the time!!!

    As mentioned there has to be a few J5 tracks that have escaped so far but to be honest 1970 is getting a little late for my my taste in general although I have been known to slip a 70's track into a compilation now and then

    My preference is also the 60's Motown output, but I also think there are some terrific cuts recorded between 70-72, especially those done in Detroit. I had thrown out the idea awhile back of a Cellarful of Motown the final Detroit Years 1970-72 release, maybe throw in a few live tracks...

    The 70s (1970 in particular) were where I came in to Motown, as it were, I love that time. First Motown album - Motown Chartbusters Volume 4 and "I Want You Back", "Up The Ladder To The Roof", "What Does It Take" and "Do What You Gotta Do" from that album set the Motown tone for me. Yes some were from 69 and others were re--issues from much earlier but all had their impact. Bring on Motown Unreleased 1970.

    Anything good!!!!!

    I used to have a single by Vikki Carr "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You / I've Never Been A Woman Before". Both sides are Motown songs and the B side Never Been .... Is from 1970. I've long suspected there's a Motown version in the vaults. Song is by Ron Miller and Tom Baird.

  25. #25
    I've Never Been A Woman Before" has been done by Streisand, Shirley Bassey and Nancy Wilson a.o.

  26. #26
    As far as 70's Supremes recordings go, I hope they wont be holding the recordings back in "hopes" for a 70s Supremes Lost and Found cause who knows if or when that would even become a reality.

    That's a new one for me. Thanks for posting. Do you know any of the recording details?

    The person who posted this on YouTube gives this information:

    An unreleased Motown master from Martha Reeves and The Vandellas. The copyright entry shows words and music by Sylvia Moy and registration date 28 July 1970 (so maybe one for the 1970 Motown Unreleased set). I do like "I Love The Way He Loves Me" a lot.

  29. #29
    Seriously, how did this Martha Reeves & The Vandellas track miss out on a release so far? It's a great track.

  30. #30
    I'd like to see some Smokey/Miracles and the Temptations cuts.

  31. #31
    There was definitely more room for a few more songs to be included on the Martha Reeves And The Vandellas Lost & Found set. Not sure why it wasn't filled all the way up time wise. Maybe they were only aloud a certain amount of songs at the time? It would be nice to get digital only unreleased Martha songs on cd.

    I'd like to see the Ivy Jo Hunter unreleased VIP album given its deserved outing!

    Inexplicable. That's the word that comes to mind as to why this track has never found its way onto an official release. Does anyone know when it was recorded and who wrote/produced it? Background singers?

    SatansBlues, "I Love The Way He Loves Me" (Sylvia Moy) Produced by Hank Cosby, Recorded May - June 1970. Should be in the next unreleased I guess.
