    Ace have not advised that me that my copy is not coming either.
    By no means the last as mentioned before this is probably just a slip up in the text.

    Hey Paul, can you give us fans a rough estimate of how many unreleased tracks remain for Brenda Holloway? Any information about her live material?

    I the liner notes to Paul's superb 'Brenda Holloway - Spellbound' double CD, it's noted that Brenda recorded most of the Supremes Disney songs as demos. It would be nice if the these recordings finally got an official release, together with the accompanying Supremes tracks. Maybe one day.

    They are certainly not down to single figures yet - the live material - aprt of that has already been released on the original Univeral - Motown anthlogy and at the very least the remainder of that show is awaiting relelase - I'd like to think that we've not come to the bottowm of the well as far as Brenda Holloway releases are concerned.

    That's a nice idea - I wonder if the great Motown buying public would be happy to buy 'rough'ish' demos - maybe as part of another project they might well be - interesting...

    Brenda's version of "The Land Of Make Believe" is stunning.

    I'm sure there's enough fans of both Brenda and the Supremes out there to make this a success. Shall we leave that thought with you Paul? 😃

    My apologies to all.

    A "Complete" issue of Brenda Holloway Motown studio recordings was planned before the pandemic struck, and I duly marked the tracks as "released" in my database. I never corrected that, and when I came to write the notes for Motown Girls 4, I didn't notice that a number of Brenda's tracks remain unissued.

    Unfortunately The Complete Brenda has yet to see the light of day, but ... we can hope!

    The Complete Brenda, now that would be impressive [[if a little repetitive?). Put me down for at least one.

    Roger, it's possible that "You Don't Hold Me In Your Arms [Like You Used To Do]" is either an early version of or the same exact track as "Bah-Bah-Bah." The title of the latter is a line in the latter song.

    Your list is, as usual, impressive and gives me a lot to hope for!

    Great list. I had really hoped that Brenda had recorded her own versions of California Soul [[A&S) and Ask The Lonely [[Stevenson/Hunter).

    Can't Hold This Feeling Back, Have A Little Talk With Myself and I Feel Your Love Growing On Me were on her last 2-disc collection. She also did a version of Come Into My Palace with her sister Patrice that was on her anthology.

    Hi Dan, hope you are well. I can`t give you a definite answer on that. I have always noted down any "assigned" titles and hints of songs without doing any more research. I don`t think so but I`m no expert I`m hoping to hear from Keith and Paul who are.

    "Who Invented Heartache" stands out a mile!
    Love Barbara McNair's version....maybe my favourite Motown track.

    Did Ivy Hunter record Brenda on this? I'd love to hear it.

    Many thanks Satan`s Blues. I`m getting a little sloppy with my records, I hope it`s not the start of dementia!

    A great list by any means BUT in the majority of cases these tracks were just assigned to Brenda plus many of these have already been released and a good proportion are just wishful thinking.
    Despite Brenda being one of the most prolific recording artists at the label the well is starting to run dry - not exhausted but running near empty. I guess you cannot keep releasing vault material forever it has to come to an end at some point. I've long since searched as have others for the few tracks that have circulated as acetates but with no success...
