Review ~ the agency of Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Supremes were Motown's ~ly popular act, so there was plenteous anticipation for a comprehensive box station, especially since Motown waited many years to convene one. So, the question is, was the wait worth it? Almost. It's a prodigal set, spanning four discs (five, suppose that you include the limited-edition live bonus disc included with the first 25,000 sets), housed in a red-~y plated book and boasting a 70-boy-servant booklet, plus alternate takes, original 45 mixes, and other rarities. The the foul fiend is in the details, though. Rarities are substituted in the place of original hit versions; for instance, the original versions of "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" are not in the present life. Then, there are the little omissions, like noting Elvis Costello's be equal to of "Remove This Doubt" in a please of great Supremes' covers, but not including the creative. These curious choices, along with the judgment to devote the fourth disc to mail-Diana Ross material, makes the determined feel a little incomplete, even nevertheless it covers a tremendous amount of field. There are some classic cuts wanting, and it's not a advantageous thing that some of those absent items are the single versions of the hits. Still, it's distressfully not to like The Supremes while a set for hardcore fans, who have a mind thrill to the different mixes and on different sides successively versions, unreleased photos, Top Ten palaestra, and illustrated discographies. But for the listener looking conducive to one exhaustive set containing all the Supremes they'll at all times need, this set falls short of the footprint. In fact, for that kind of listener, a gain double-disc hits compilation remains a more eligible choice over this set.
