Motown has released a titanic collection of formerly shelved cuts from its endless archive on the new catalog compilation, Unreleased 1968. An intimate glimpse at a prodigious and innovative roster of luminary songwriters and vocalists, the 88-track collection scrapes the cutting room floor for overlooked jewels from the Detroit institution that changed the course of history in music and well beyond it.
You can hear Stevie Wonder glide over Henry Mancini’s timeless “Moon River” with symphonic accompaniment, Gladys Knight & The Pips display their break-heavy soul on “Show Me The Way,” Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s dueting howls on “Tears at The End of a Love Affair,” as well as shuddered suites from Billy Eckstine, The Temptations, The Spinners, Martha Reeves, and so many more. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the label’s upcoming 60th anniversary (January 12th,) and an intimate glimpse at what is perhaps the greatest roster of musicians ever assembled.
