Joined Together: The Complete Studio Duets – Diana Ross & The Supremes And The Temptations (2004)

This is definitely an item for Motown lovers, collectors and completists. As I do, you may already own both 1968’s “Diana Ross & the Supremes Join the Temptations” and 1969’s “Together”. But now you can have it on 2 remastered pristine CDs with bonus material of previously unreleased tracks from the recording sessions for the former and and alternate mixes from the recording sessions of the latter.

The albums themselves were nothing spectacular. They contain lots of Motown covers and standards from the era. But I love Motown and I just had to have them on CD once I found out they existed. Ironically they came out in 2004, but I just discovered them last year. It seems that Motown is not big on promoting the music and why I don’t know because there are plenty of us “Boomers” wanting it more and more! We “Boomers” made Motown what it was, so I don’t understand why they don’t want to cater to our musical needs now and release some of the long out of print sounds that we love.

Anyway, listen below to some of the great music you may never have heard before. Enjoy!
