Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Keith Hughes.

Recording information: Hitsville USA Studio, Detroit (1962-1969).

Photographers: Eric Charge; Bill Staiger.

A second collection of unreleased rarities from deep in the Motown vaults, Ace's 2015 compilation Love & Affection: More Motown Girls contains nothing released in the '60s -- nothing that was issued before 2014 (all on the digital album Motown Unreleased 1964) -- with many of the 25 cuts making their debut here. Ace concentrates on material recorded between 1962 and 1969, with the great majority of the sides cut during Motown's glory days of the mid-'60s. Like so many collections of Motown rarities, what impresses is the consistency; perhaps the songs aren't as exceptionally sculpted as the singles that stormed the charts, but they're still well-crafted and the recordings pop with style and spirit. These are tunes that very well may sound diminished if collected alongside Motown's staples, but heard on their own they are infectious and giddy. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
