"Motown heavy-hitters, soul superstars, and fan favorites abound on these two collections. There’s a wealth of Stevie Wonder rarities, for example, from his cover of “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and rare original recordings, to live material recorded at Detroit’s Fox Theatre in December, 1968. Motown Unreleased: 1968 also includes an early version of The Four Tops’ “Yesterday’s Dreams”, Marvin Gaye rarities, Billy Eckstine sessions, a handful of outtakes by Gladys Knight and the Pips, and a Christmas message from Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Martha Reeves and the Vandellas also feature with their takes on “Ode To Billie Joe” and Arthur Conley’s “Sweet Soul Music.” Cult favorite Blinky appears with a number of tracks, as well.

Lesser-known acts from the Motown roster also feature, from The Utopians and The Originals, T & T, Willie Tyler, The Messengers, and actor Paul Petersen. While these artists never found widespread fame, their outtakes are frequently as fascinating as session tracks from bona fide Motown legends. It’s what makes the Motown Unreleased series so compelling, as fans are able to travel back into The Snakepit at Hitsville, U.S.A. to hear gems from the vault.

All the music on Motown Unreleased: 1968 — Part 1 has been sourced from the original mono masters, while the selections on Part 2 were sourced from the original session tapes and mixed for the first time ever by either Richard Hughes at Hughes Incorporated, or Obie O’Brien at Mixville U.S.A, with engineering by Mike Lawson. The result is a collection that not only delivers historically significant material, but also promises to sound great, too!"
