Many moons have passed since our last "Motown
Girls" project was released - but these things
take time and a great deal of patience. We're
confident followers of the series will find this new
volume well worth the wait.
The collection opens with 'In My Heart I Know It's
Right', the first song Gladys Knight & the Pips
recorded for Motown, and closes with the great
Kim Weston in torch singer mode. In between
you'll find some of the company's biggest stars -
the Marvelettes, Brenda Holloway, Martha & the
Vandellas - alongside lesser-known collector's
favourites such as Liz Lands and LaBrenda Ben.
Of the 24 tracks here on "Baby I've Got It!", 14 are
previously unissued in any format and 10 were
first made available as "Motown Unreleased"
downloads between 2014 and 2017. The
selections were recorded between 1961 and 1969,
and - although predominantly uptempo, which
should please most Motown fans - represent
several variations of the Motown sound.
