    I've never seen GREATEST HITS in the MOTD series - although it was released in Canada as MDM series.

    As discussed in a separate thread, different tracklisting for each version of FOPUR TOPS NOW.

    Some have said over the years that RETURN OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN made it into cd in the 5000 series. I don't buy it as I've never seen any copy nor do I know anyone who is reliable who says he/she has (seen) a copy.
    Maybe the confusion was with the BEST OF, which technically IS a 5000 series cd, and it contains half of the aforementioned album on cd for the first time.

    One for which I've never seen any other version than the 374635xxx2 one :

    I do think all FOUR TOPS 5000 series cds are here. If not, I'll gladly be proved otherwise.
    Next will be MARVIN GAYE.

    Thanks for the scans which are excellent as usual and highlight surprising differences.

  6. #6
    I hope the scans will help those who want to find either version of an album on cd.

    They should help to know from the picture of the front insert only if, for instance, there is a reference printed below the Motown logo on the front insert (like on only one of the 2 editions of NATURE PLANNED IT) or if STEREO appears at the top of the artwork (same for REACH OUT cd).

    Thanks Ralph and Lowell and everyone allowing me to post here by the way.

    But the best/worse is yet to come. I've imagined years ago that if the art was sometimes different, there was no reason there should't be différences in the music on each cd.
    And that's the case. I posted something about the Temptations MASTERPIECE cd a few days ago, but that's not an isolated cas where sometimes you need one specific edition of a cd. It can be about sound quality, mastering, alternates in some cases…

    This will be detailed track by track in the artist by artist threads (I've only made Severin Browne as a test as of now, but will do it for each Motown artist, and I promise the next one will be more… interesting.)

    Like you I've not come across Four Tops "Greatest Hits" as an MOTD5209 version - but there was a vinyl issue M5-209V1 and cassette too MOTC 5209 Name:  MOTD5209 1 NG MOTC5209 Four Tops - Greatest Hits [net] 500.jpg

    Yes, and there are a few A MOTOWN CASSETTE CLASSIC releases for which there are even more alternate artworks than the ones used for the cds. Not to mention alternate track listings (including in Stevie Wonder’s classic 70s albums!), or mistakes in the arts used (there’s a very odd confusion between 3 Supremes titles)
    Also some cassette releases in the late 80s in the A MOTOWN CASSETTE CLASSIC series never on cd (Marvelettes ANTHOLOGY comes to mind)
    I might start a thread on cassettes releases later I think ��

    I always thought it strange how the BIG M Motown logo was used on the Keeper Of The Castle CD issue

  10. #10
    I don't think it strange for a Motown issued CD to have a Motown logo on it. I thought it was a very nice touch that Motown released this album recorded elsewhere (and it also appeared on a Motown 2fer).

    Similarly, Motown also released Thelma Houston's "Sunshower" album on vinyl (don't think they released it on CD but I may be wrong).

    Similarly, Motown also released Thelma Houston's "Sunshower" album on vinyl (don't think they released it on CD but I may be wrong).[/QUOTE]

    SUNSHOWER first made it to cd in 2001 in Japan on the Celeste label, along with a few other Motown related titles. It was distributed by Universal. Although neither the MOTOWN name nor it’s logo can be seen on the front or back insert, the Motown logo can be seen on the cd label. So it is a Motown cd release in a way.
    Scans of it don’t have a place here. So I may open a thread with the Celeste releases. Or a thread on SUNSHOWER. That’s a great album imho

  12. #12
    I don't have much vinyl now but I was really pleased when "Sunshower" was released on the Tamla Motown label. I got it, of course, to go alongside my copies on the Stateside and Probe labels (that's sadly the nature of being a collector). The best CD release of it for me is the Soul Music records one with several bonus tracks. "Sunshower" is easily my favourite Thelma Houston album (but my favourite song by her is "No One's Gonna Be A Fool Forever").

    That Celeste label may be a new one on me - I'll have to look it up on Discogs.

    MARVIN GAYE

    [Only a few ones today, but to be continued shortly]

    First one is a funny one as the album name is THAT STUBBORN KINDA' FELLOW on the front art and THAT STUBBORN KINDA FELLA on the back of the original lp (and reproduced as page 4 of the booklet of the 374635xxx2 cd). This edition of the cd renames the album STUBBORN KINDA FELLOW MARVIN GAYE (both back insert and spine of the jewel case). Meanwhile the title song is in fact "Stubborn Kind of Fellow"... Yech!

    As with most Marvin Gaye cds, the European and Japanese cd arts and tracklistings (bonus tracks) differ greatly from the US 5000 series. Many things to add also concerning the many expanded versions of Marvin's albums, including some 60's ones available as downloads only.
    More on that on a specific thread,... later!

    Duets albums are included within the main discography in chronological order of initial release. For Marvin and Mary Wells's TOGETHER album, an expanded 17 tracks version is available on iTunes. And that's the one to get.

    ...and when Universal reissued the cd in the 2000's, they changed the color of the back insert [but for once did manage to keep the original font for the bar code]. Below are partial scans of both cd labels. The new "fake" one as I like to call it, has a visible Universal logo near the center, no timing for the tracks neither producers names below the tracklisting.

    I've never seen a proper MOTD release for UNITED. If it exists, please advise. It should be similar to the A MOTOWN COMPACT CLASSIC [it'll be the same for 70's Marvin's cds]

    Something is wrong with the tracklistings as tracks 2 & 3, and 10 & 11, are inverted. The cds are ok : "Keep On Loving Me Honey" follows "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" and preceeds "You're All I Need To Get By". Same goes for tracks 10 & 11.

    MARVIN GAYE AND HIS GIRLS was released as MOTD. I have a pic of that cd, which should be home to me in the very next days.
    Art is the same as 374635xxx2 save for the catalogue number below STEREO that is absent on the MOTD front art - the cut seen at the bottom is exactly the same on both arts though - and the reference MOTD appears above the AAD logo on the back insert.

    There's a 2000's "fake" version of that cd [understand a genuine and official release, but not a real 5000 late 80's-early 90's cd] and it is undistinguisable from the old cd as far as art is concerned; of course, the cd label leaves no doubt.
