Motown Box Set Vol 2

Recommended Posts

I got a press release email about it earlier this week, but unfortunately I can't access personal email from here.

 

They do make a point of emphasising that the records will be pressed in top quality vinyl :lol:

I'm Grateful by the Four Tops really is a feel good record, can't wait for the second Motown 7s collection. Richard Searling played some of the test pressings at Blackpool Tower. Some superb tracks here! A must have set. Rod

Sounds the same to me, although I've grown to like The Fantastic Four version better!

I love the Barbara McNair - I Know Better and especially this version where someone has done a fantastic job of splicing Barbara's version with Gladys Knight's and The Marvelettes versions.

From Universal: “For Volume 2 a few changes to the box packaging have been made. We have adapted the label copy insert into a more substantial four page card leaflet.  Vinyl will also be manufactured at Optimal to give the authentic push out centre hole of the time.  Sleeves will be paper rather than gloss card.  The selection of tracks again represent highly sought after vinyl releases compiled by journalist and DJ Richard Searling.  Boxes will be limited edition and numbered.”
 
I made a promise to myself that I would resist buying volume 2, but the track list and changes noted above have made it impossible to resist...

I'm still p*ssed off about the limited edition rip off - 2000 limited edition (then we'll just keep selling it) - that's not a limited edition.

 

I'm going to buy this second box set but as Pete says, it does look a bit dull. Who has compiled it?

 

Cheers

Yep - Think I'd kill for a Marvin Gaye 'My Love For You' 45.

 

Nice one!

Worth buying just for this track. Super, super soul music.

 

Hope you're well Sean.

Yes! Sounded go to me on the Sunday afternoon at Blackpool Tower :)  :thumbsup: One Question? Did they ever catch the culprit behind the Gladys Knight & The Pips-If you ever get your hands on love, boot. The recording was very good , but label very poor. About 10/12years ago.  Rod

Dave,

 

It's not Amazon who are producing it, they are just sellers. The blame in this case is Universal, and for the Beatles, EMI, who have done the dirty.

I wouldn't be surprised if the big retailers, Amazon probably being the biggest, would have asked Universal to supply more box sets when they sold all of their initial allocation.  This may have prompted Universal to press more copies of the so called Limited Edition.  Universal should have just left it at 2,000 sets, but probably wanted to make more money.  Let's see if they keep it to a limited run for Volume 2.

just got my Motown box set vol 2 delivered fantastic my fav got to be the Temps Angel Doll

 

I take it Universal have learnt from the mistakes of Volume One, i.e. missing / duplicate records and poor quality pressings.  I've been putting off ordering this box set until it gets a thumbs up from customers, as the last one was a bit of a lottery.
