What's Your Favourite Motown Compilation Lp?

Recommended Posts

Went out this afternoon and come home with the following LP in exchange for £4.

Motown Disco Classics Vol. 3 (STML 11227)

Side One

You Keep Me Hanging On - Diana Ross & The Supremes

Baby I've Got It - Jimmy Ruffin

Just A Little Misunderstanding - The Contours

Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead - The Marvelettes

Tell Me It's Just A Rumour Baby - The Isley Brothers

Starting The Hurt All Over Again - Brenda Holloway

How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) - Marvin Gaye

Heatwave - Martha Reeves & The Vandellas

Side Two

Night Fo' Last (Instrumental) - Shorty Long

Ain't Too Proud To Beg - The Temptations

He Was Really Saying Somethin' - The Velvelettes

Shoot Your Shot - JR. Walker & The Allstars

25 Miles - Edwin Starr

Destination: Anywhere - The Marvelettes

I Got A Feeling - Barbara Randolph

Friendship Train - Gladys Knight & The Pips

Theres no gaps between tracks so they just go straight into one another. Anyway this got me wondering about all those Motown Compilation albums that must've been released. We've probably all got some somewhere, so which ones do you like or which ones would you like?

Going way back, most of the Motown Big 16 albums were excellent. Tended to feature the lesser known tracks than the Chartbusters series.

I had a copy of that, leant it to a mate. Went round after a week to pick it up, no problems. Went down to the car, put it on the roof, set off, pulled up at the junction at the end of the road, it went flying off the roof and under another car.

Thank god it isn't that rare. not that I've ever bothered looking for another

Check this one out:

Motown 630 - Various Artists - Nothing But a Man - Soundtrack to an obscure film from 1964/5 it has THREE unknown Northern Soul dancers by the MIracles, Marvelettes and Martha & The Vandellas that were never ever issued in any other format. They all stormers.. just waiting for the right DJ. The LP is rare but well worth the hunt and hardly anyone knows about it. The Vandellas track is particually sensational..

The one with the blue cover, is it Volume 8. Anyway it has Its So Hard Being A Loser by the Contours on it. Saw it in Manchester a few weeks ago for £30 in poor condition. Love the Contours track. I have it on Gordy and English. What is it worth and does it get played? It was spun regularly at the Wheel.
