Album Review

With the plethora of options currently in print, the question of whether listeners need another anthology paying homage to the Supremes is entirely a valid one. With Motown's proclivity to recycle and repackage the same material, it comes as no surprise that Gold gathers together four previously issued greatest-hits compilations, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and Vol. 3 as well as At Their Best.
