Motown Spruces Up Supremes’ ‘No. 1’s
In the wake of top-selling collections of chart-toppers by the Beatles and Elvis Presley, Motown will on Feb. 3 release a similar album by Diana Ross and the Supremes, “The No. 1s.” The 24-track set sports 11 Supremes No. 1s, four cuts from the period when the group was billed as Diana Ross and the Supremes, eight Ross solo tracks and a new remix of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by the Almighty Associates.
Producer Harry Weinger went back to the original master tapes to create slightly longer mixes of a number of tracks, resulting in what is touted as “the best fidelity in any Supremes and/or Diana Ross collection ever.”
The album kicks off with the August 1964 No. 1 hit “Where Did Our Love Go,” and runs the gamut from such evergreens as “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “I Hear a Symphony” and the group’s final No. 1 R&B hit, 1970’s “Stoned Love.”
Ross’ solo selections include “Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To),” “Love Hangover,” “I’m Coming Out” and her 1981 duet with Lionel Richie, “Endless Love.” The package is rounded out by rare photos, a track-by-track recap and an essay by Brian Chin, who has contributed to two prior Supremes best-ofs collections.
