Album Review

Motown's endless musical assembly line yielded a number of incomplete or otherwise shelved projects. This is especially true during the label's heyday, when sessions were being held around the clock in the infamous 'Snakepit' studio of Motown's 2648 West Grand Boulevard digs. In the case of There's a Place for Us (1965) for instance, there was also recording going on in other facilities at the same time. The concept behind the unissued long-player was to spotlight Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard and Diana Ross in a setting of tunes from the stage and silver screen, coupled with the occasional well-known traditional standard. Producers Hal Davis and Marc Gordon called the shots on the West Coast, while Ivory Joe Hunter, Mickey Stevenson, Ron Miller and Henry Cosby did the same back in Detroit. The Supremes turned on their inimitable charm, creating a collection that would appeal not only to the youth market, but hopefully their older siblings and parents, too. The dozen-song album has something for practically every taste from big, bold and brass-driven workouts such as "Put on a Happy Face" and "Big City Babies Don't Cry" to the bountifully orchestrated "Make Someone Happy," "Something for My Heart" and "Fancy Passes." They delve into the boss sound of the bossa nova on "The Boy From Ipanema," offering a highlighted interpretation that is arguably one of the best ever done. Closer to their soul roots are the arrangements of "Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody," as well as a superior reading of "You're Nobody 'Till Somebody Loves You" that will set toes a-tappin' once the sophisticated score kicks in. Additionally, West Side Story's show-stopping ballad "Somewhere" — from whence the package gets its name — also deserves a nod for the inspired three-part vocals. It took nearly 30 years, but A Place for Us was finally issued along with another 14 cuts — most being made available for the first time — on to the limited-edition single-CD compilation There's a Place for Us: The Unreleased LP + Much More (2004) from Hip-O Select. The package is available exclusively at and includes a 12-page liner booklet with all manner of detailed discographical minutia, rare photos and a short essay on just exactly where this minor masterpiece has been for the last three decades.

Customer Reviews

The infamous "TAPFU" comes to iTunes!

This long-lost in the vaults, unreleased gem is the perfect addition to any REAL Supremes fan's collection. Most of this music was never released before this CD came out in 2004. Hear new music from the all-time #1 girl group in the world, The Supremes! The Supremes sparkle and shine on this material, and it really makes one wonder what Berry Gordy was thinking by not releasing this music when The Supremes wre at the height of their fame and popularity. Big mistake to keep this in the vaults for so many years. Gordy could have made a fortune off this, and isn't that his bottom-line? For the losers over on groups like VMF, they just don't "get" this music. It's not The Supremes hits that we're all used to hearing. This album is for the REAL fans (not the VMF losers!) who clamor for more from this long-gone group from the past.This album contains pure magic as only The Supremes can make it.

The Supremes still reign Supreme

In 1964 I saw the Supremes for the first time. Since that time many have tried to articulate what it was that made them different. This early collection of standards were way ahead of their time and encompasses the vision of Berry Gordy to take the group to heights unheard of by rock and roll artists of their time. He succeeded in that endeavor. Diana, Mary and Flo will forever be legends. Listen to the young Diana Ross on Make Someone Happy and you'll hear a diva in the making. Mary is wonderful on Our Day will come, over all the group is tight and still had the synergy that made them Supreme. No question, this is a gift to the Supremes Fans. One that many of us waited for since 1965 when Diana announced it at the Motortown Revue In Paris only to have Motown keep in the vaults. It is well worth waiting for.


Formed: 1961 in Detroit, MI

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s

The most successful American performers of the 1960s, the Supremes for a time rivaled even the Beatles in terms of red-hot commercial appeal, reeling off five number one singles in a row at one point. Critical revisionism has tended to undervalue the Supremes' accomplishments, categorizing their work as more lightweight than the best soul stars (or even the best Motown stars), and viewing them as a tool for Berry Gordy's crossover aspirations. There's no question that there was about as much pop...
