The most successful female vocal group of the '60s, The Supremes were one of the quintessential Motown acts, scoring countless memorable hits that helped to define that label's distinctive R&B/pop hybrid. Diana Ross was the group's leader, but the Supremes still managed to chart several times after her departure in 1969. Ross became a solo superstar in the '70s, delving into pop, disco, and soul with great success. She also became an actress, and was nominated for an Oscar for her 1972 portrayal of Billie Holiday in LADY SINGS THE BLUES.
Out of print in the U.S.! The Ultimate Collection from Diva Ross and her two Supreme sidekicks is just that....the ULTIMATE Collection! This is the best single-disc compilation on the market by the chirpy trio and features more than a plethora of hits. The world is a much better place because of songs like ''Where Did Our Love Go'', ''Stop! In The Name Of Love'', ''I Hear A Symphony'', ''Baby Love'', ''You Can''t Hurry Love'', ''The Happening'' and everything else on this CD. There''s 25 great tracks here that say more in three minutes than many artists entire catalog. It''s soulful. It''s melodic. It''s brilliant. It''s the ultimate collection. Universal.
The title is a bit of a misnomer: The Supremes are anthologized in more comprehensive fashion on Motown's three-volume Greatest Hits series, while this package is denser, and has a higher hit-per-track ratio. But if you'd rather pick up one collection than three, and if you want a good, thorough skimming of cream from the group's catalog, this is the better choice. All of the familiar songs are here, with no major omissions--and they're packed in with a liberal helping of second-magnitude hits. For a collection that samples only the extreme top end of the Supremes' output, there's Every Great No. 1 Hit, also on Motown. It's missing a lot, but it delivers exactly what it promises. --Gavin McNett
