Although I'm obviously familiar with pretty much every song on this compilation, I don't think I've ever actually spun this thing. The artists on Motown Records in the 60's and early 70's were tailor-made for 'Greatest Hits' packages, generally preferring the immediate fling of a 3 to 4 minute pop single to the commitment involved in a full album relationship (unless your first name is Marvin or Stevie, of course, in which case, the full length album would always be put to good use.) I prefer albums myself, but I definitely see the merits of a good single, especially the way The Supremes do it! There ain't a dud track on this thing, and when you consider the fact that they, (and several other vocal girl groups of the 60's) provided the starting point for more than a couple of my favourite shoegaze bands, a solid argument for pulling out this album more often is certainly warranted.
