HASH(0x9576457c) étoiles sur 5 A must for Motown aficionados 18 mai 2002
Par Idontknow - Publié sur
Format: CD
To be honest, I didn't like this CD very much at first. I had just gotten the 'Motown Connoisseurs' CD, and I must say that 'Big Hits & Hard To Find Classics Vol. 4' isn't quite in the same class of quality as that fantastic disc, or the three previous volumes. But after repeated listening, the music on this compilation has really grown on me. I highly recommend it to all true Motown fans, in addition to Volumes 1-3 and 'Connoisseurs'!

HASH(0x957645d0) étoiles sur 5 More hard to find classics 4 mars 2006
Par Lozarithm - Publié sur
Format: CD
Spectrum have shown some enterprise with the Motown catalogue, and this series must have hit a winning formula to have reached Volume 4. The Big Hits make the releases sufficiently commercial to allow the inclusion of the Hard To Find Classics, which obviously appeal more to the collector.

This is the first of the series to have been compiled in the UK. Paul Nixon has been generous with the rarities, mostly unavailable or long deleted on CD prior to this collection, and has added valuable liner information. The Northern Soul fraternity has shown a preference for a certain kind of Motown sound and there are several prime examples here although its scope is thankfully wider.

Well known names include Marvin Gaye, whose cover of Motown-legend Frank Wilson lay in the vaults until 1979, and the Marvelettes, with an album track from 1969, but it is the more unsung heroes that flourish here. Barbara McNair, a former Playboy model and actress, smoulders wonderfully through Steal Away Tonight. The Elgins contribute It's Been A Long Long Time, a single that sounds so Motown-esque its origins as a Sammy Cahn/Jule Styne standard from the 1940s are completely buried. Eddie Holland added a new vocal to a song assigned to Barrett Strong before he left the label, and had a Top Ten Billboard R&B hit with the Jamie label in 1961.

A B-side by the forgotten ensemble Rick Robin And Him turns out to be a male/female duet, but as the writer is Richard Witte, I wonder if he is Rick, and the track is actually by Rick, a female Robin and Him (whoever Him is). Barbara Randolph's classic I Got A Feeling gets a repeat airing (it was also on Volume 1) and the great Chris Clark closes the collection in fine style with a superb track from her first album, which makes one want the whole LP, Soul Sounds - and that's what these compilations are all about.

HASH(0x95764a08) étoiles sur 5 Not as good as the others 28 juillet 2002
Par Zub - Publié sur
Format: CD
In this fourth installment of the U.K.'s Spectrum label's series of Motown "Big Hits and Rare Classics", there are very few hits and none of them were "big", at least not on this side of the pond. Most of these cuts would be considered hard-to-find and there are quite a few charted Tamla/Motown singles that have not seen the light of day on CD and would have made better candidates than many of those included here. Only three of the tracks were top-100 U.S.A. pop hits with the biggest being the San Remo Strings' "Hungry For Love". On the plus side is the inclusion of the Elgins' last pop-charting single "It's Been A Long Long Time". Point is, this disc is a bit of a disappointment selection-wise leaving one to wonder if this is the end of this series.

Sound quality is OK - sometimes typically muddy Motown - and on a par with other discs in this series. Tracks appear in mono with the exception of 3,4,8,11,13,15,16 and 18. The liner notes booklet does contain background info on the included tracks creating some interest in these mostly forgotten titles.

Mostly for the die-hard Motown fan or collector, this CD falls somewhat short on its potential. Hopefully, there will be further CD's in this series that will resurrect some of the still lost Motown singles.

HASH(0x95764dd4) étoiles sur 5 A MUST HAVE FOR MOTOWN COLLECTORS! 31 juillet 2002
Par Howard Carver - Publié sur
Format: CD
Being a Motown fan ever since my early teens, and no longer having those hundreds of 45s that I collected, it's exciting to listen to some little-known cuts that I used to have. "A Little Bit of Sandy" by Paul Petersen was one of those, as was "I Got A Feeling" by Barbara Randolph, and "It's Been A Long, Long Time" by the Elgins. Many of those I've not heard before have grown on me, like "Cheatin' is Telling on You" (The Lollipops); "Crying in the Night" (The Monitors); "I Miss You Baby" (Marv Johnson); "Now Is the Time for Love" (The Marvelettes)! In my book all of these deserved airplay in their day and had hit potential...great, tight productions! Another really catchy tune (and "mystery song"), "Cause You Know Me" by Rick Robin and Him, sounds much like R. Dean Taylor, in a similar vain to "Let's Go Somewhere." I recommend that all Motown lovers get this CD. You won't be disappointed; it's more than worth the cost!!
