Album Review

Up until this release, consumers had a difficult task of finding a definitive compilation highlighting the post-Supremes career of Diana Ross — mainly because there wasn't one. This double-disc set gathers 27 of the diva's finest solo sides, plus an additional 11 tracks that are making their domestic debut. As a retrospective, The Motown Anthology succeeds in gathering all of Ross' major singles. Some are available here in a previously unissued form. Such is the case for "Remember Me," "My Mistake (Was to Love You)," and "Lovin' Livin' & Givin'" — from the Thank God It's Friday soundtrack. Those looking for chart-toppers should note that The Motown Anthology not only delivers rare material, but also all the hits that would render most other collections superfluous. The producers have also hit upon a favorable ratio of hits to rarities. After covering all the bases on the popular and familiar material, the previously unearthed nuggets — which are spread throughout the chronologically organized set — are a treat for both the intense as well as the casual fan. Of particular note is the leadoff track "Time and Love" — a Laura Nyro composition which had been scheduled, and then withdrawn, as Ross' first solo single. The sound is uniformly excellent with the caveat that some of the early recordings on disc one — "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" for example — never were known for their fidelity. Likewise, the sound of mid-to-late '70s tracks such as "Love Hangover" and "The Boss" are marked improvements. Clocking in at over two and a half hours, The Motown Anthology is a tremendous value.

A COLLECTION TO TREASURE!

Where do I begin? There are so many wonderful songs on this collection! All of the big radio hits (including many major #1 singles) are here ("Upside Down", "Endless Love", "Touch Me in the Morning", "Love Hangover", etc.) plus many that became major international hits (outside the U.S.). I like the way many alternate versions of famous songs are here ("Remember Me"); plus, many songs that were not released until this collection came out. One of the previously-unreleased songs is the lead-off song "Time and Love"--which is quite good! Also, it is important to note that there are many different musical styles here--blues, jazz ("Good Morning Heartache"), dance ("Upside Down"), ballads ("It's My Turn", "When You Tell Me that You Love Me", many more), hip hop ("Workin' Overtime")--and Ross handles every style extremely well. In additon to all the above songs mentioned, my favorites include the beautiful "If We Hold On Together" (just heard this became one of the very biggest hits in Japan of all time), "Until We Meet Again", "Remember Me" (which sort of sounds like it would fit on Ross' new "I Love You" album), "Old Funky Roles" (a fun song), "Take Me Higher", and the beautiful "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)". Folks, this wonderful collection is a good reminder of why Diana Ross has been known as a diva for such a long, long time. She's the best!!

Forever Miss Ross!

This is the best collection to get all of your favorite Diana Ross songs on two CDs! You even get My Mistake with Marvin Gaye (we all know what happened during those recording sessions). Truly a joy to listen to all the time!

As a solo artist, Diana Ross is one of the most successful female singers of the rock era. If you factor in her work as the lead singer of the Supremes in the 1960s, she may be the most successful. With her friends Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin, Ross formed the Primettes vocal quartet in 1959. In 1960, they were signed to local Motown Records, changing their name to the Supremes in 1961. Martin then left, and the group continued as a trio. Over the next eight years, the Supremes...
