Where Did Our Love Go (Limited Edition) – The Supremes (2004)
May 15, 2008
In 2004 the Hip-O-Select division of the Universal Music Group released this 2-CD Expanded 40th Anniversary Edition of the Supremes classic 1964 Album “Where Did Our Love Go”. Both the stereo and mono versions are on Disc 1. Disk 2 contains 19 rare and unreleased songs recorded by the Supremes of that time. Plus a live concert, also from the era, completes the second disc.
“Where Did Our Love Go” was the second Motown album released on the Supremes, but it is the first to become a hit. It went straight to #1 on the R&B charts and #2 on the Pop charts. The Supremes were now on the map big-time!
This package was worth every cent I paid. The many, many Supremes collections and box sets generally include the most popular (spelled highest charting) tunes and not those we know and love from the original albums of the era. “Long Gone Lover”, “He Means the World to Me” and “Ask Any Girl” are three of my favorite Supremes hits that I hadn’t heard in a while since I haven’t been able to play my original vinyl version of this fantastic Supreme LP. But now I can hear these classics that I love whenever I want in digital form.
I have uploaded them to share with you so that you will know what to expect when you aquire this “must have” Supremes Collection. If you are a Supremes fan you will be impressed by the historical signifigant recordings that had not been released before, as well as the wonderful live concert at Detroit’s Twenty Grand Club.
But please don’t delay in making your purchase: there was a limited pressing of only 10,000.00 sets made.
