While this compilation might be enticing to some, it's also somewhat misleading. While the prospect of having a budget-line compilation featuring the Supremes and the Marvelettes along with their greatest numbers is appealing, this isn't exactly the case. These recordings are all new, featuring at least one of the original artists of each group involved. It's essentially overglossed, overly produced renditions with horrible karaoke-like arrangements that do a complete disservice to the originals. But if the original recordings aren't necessary and quality isn't of importance to you, then this might be a sensible low-budget compilation to purchase. Otherwise, it's best to seek elsewhere.
