Label: Universal Music
Ask a Supremes aficionado to name the group members and you can bet they will name more than just the pioneering Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. That’s because the group preserved well into the 1970’s, with several smash hits and a huge, devoted following. Their new 3 CD collection from Hip-o Select.com, Let Yourself Go: The 70s Albums Vol. 2: 1974-1977 The Final Sessions, picks up where This Story: The 70s Albums Vol. 1: 1970 – 1973 The Jean Terrell Years left off. In these great recordings, the dynamic Scherrie Payne shares lead vocals with original member Mary Wilson. Long time Supremes’ favourite Cindy Birdsong is back. And the final Supreme Susaye Greene adds her distinctive vocal style to the trio’s last two albums.
Let Yourself Go includes all of the LP’s from this distinctive era, plus numerous bonus tracks, remastered in their entirety for the first time: The Supremes, featuring No.1 Disco hit He’s My Man; High Energy, which includes the group’s final top-40 pop hit, I’m Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking; and Mary, Scherrie & Susaye, exploding with more than 10 dance floor classics. The long-sought-after previously unreleased recordings from this era include several bonus cuts from the sessions; alternate takes with various lead vocals; and an original, alternate mix of the complete High Energy album. Fans will get a whole new take on some of their favourites. All of this great music is housed in a beautifully designed hardcover “book” package in the same format as Vol.1. Inside is a Supremes’ fan’s dream: extensive liner notes with informative and revealing interviews with Mary Wilson, Scherrie Payne, Cindy Birdsong and Susaye Greene, detailing the fascinating story about the group’s final years together. Brand new quotes from legendary Motown writer/producer Brian Holland and other producers from the era. Thoroughly detailed annotations and the definitive listing of a Supremes’ Who’s-Who. And, of course, more rare and never before seen photographs than in any other Supremes CD collection.
Let Yourself Go: The 70’s Albums Vol.2: 1974 -1977 The Final Sessions is the perfect retrospective for the final chapter of a legendary Motown group.
