Just out of interest Glyn, any unissued stuff on here, or was it a relaunch / repackage set?

I am drawing a comparrison with the thing the Holland Brothers did around the same time (Yesterday Today and Tomorrow) which had some good unissued Motown tracks (Wali Ali, Margo Michaels etc)

Apart from the mis-credited Sam Dees song Its So Wonderful, there are (I think) 3 reworkings in the set, which i believe are SoundTown recordings (quite electronic), but dont know if they were previously released.

Shelbra Deane reprises I'll Be the Other Woman, which I quite like...

J Blackfoot & Shelbra Deane covering Williams Bells Lovin' On Borrowed Time

There is another J Blackfoot reworking, but i cant remember what that is as I didn't think it was very good, so I never burned it to mp3, so have to get it out of storage to find out.
