|Various Artists The Motown 7's Vinyl: Volume 3 Limited Edition Numbered 7 x 7Inch Vinyl Box Set
This fall UMGI release the third in their series of highly desirable, limited edition 7” box sets with 14 superb tracks from Motown vaults. Seriously soulful dance delights, the numbers on offer here have only previously been hidden away on albums or CD collections and all feature high on any ‘Hitsville’ collectors’ list of must-haves. Moreover, all 14 masterpieces are making their first ever, worldwide appearance on 45rpm singles.
Compiled by BBC radio DJ and journalist Richard Searling, the artists featured include the Four Tops, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Marvin Gaye, Kim Weston, Tammi Terrell, The Marvelettes, David Ruffin, The Spinners, The Monitors, Barbara Randolph and Kim Weston. An exclusive appears in the form of Show Me The Way by J.J. Barnes – an absolute floor-filler, pulled from the Motown vaults and previously unreleased. Only recently available on CD, Jimmy Ruffin’s version of The “In” Crowd also sees its debut on vinyl and for a seriously cool delivery of hip soul look no further than Marvin Gaye’s rendition of the Tom Jones classic It’s Not Unusual.
Highly anticipated by collectors worldwide, this box set is a must for Motown and Northern Soul fans alike. Packaging comes complete with Back to Black download card.
