Like their 2011-released 50th anniversary sets for the Temptations and Diana Ross & the Supremes, Motown Select's compilation of Martha Reeves & the Vandellas' singles is a three-disc anthology packaged hardcover book-style -- like the Complete Motown Singles volumes. It clearly has the serious collector in mind. The book within is packed with images and information, some of which is justifiably adapted from Complete Motown Singles. Discs one and two cover the A-sides and B-sides, 1962-1972, including the Top Ten hits "Heat Wave," "Dancing in the Street," "Nowhere to Run," and "I'm Ready for Love." The third disc consists of previously unreleased material. That's right; there is no overlap with Spellbound: Motown Lost and Found. That extensive 2005 set didn't come close to draining the tank, as there's a bounty of fascinating material, such as versions of Thomas Coman/Sylvester Stewart's "C'mon and Swim," Ivy Jo Hunter/Stevie Wonder's "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever," the Corporation's "He's Good" (recorded by the Jackson 5 as Maybe Tomorrow's "She's Good"), and the Doors' "Light My Fire." "Hooked Real Good on a Bad Thing," for whatever reason, never saw the light of day and wasn't handed to another Motown act -- a shame since it's a fine Ashford & Simpson-written song.
