Stream Motown Comp Featuring Previously Unavailable Tracks From The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, & More
Motown Records just released Motown Unreleased: 1969, a digital-only compilation featuring 60 previously unreleased studio recordings from 1969. That includes unavailable or never-before-heard tracks from the likes of the Supremes, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, the Jackson 5, and Gladys Knight.
“Motown is clearly evolving at this time. There’s an opening for writers and producers to experiment with the Motown sound but, for certain topics, or musical ideas, or even artists, the company isn’t ready. Or, it’s a simple case of having only so many slots for releases. So, until now, those songs went unreleased.”
