The Supremes, 'Diana Ross and the Supremes Greatest Hits'

In August 1964, "Where Did Our Love Go" began the Supremes' run of chart-topping singles. By the end of 1967, they'd scored 10 of them. In the same timespan, so had the Beatles. Nobody else came close. All 10 are arrayed on this chart-topping 20-track double-LP along with well-remembered also-rans like "Nothing but Heartaches" and "Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart" and filler sure to grow on you as you down yet another round of upbeat erotic longing. Forlorn more often than fulfilled, Ross' sexy love is an up either way thanks to the irresistible Motown rhythm section and a soprano so sweet and lucid that half a century on it still gives the gift of optimism against all odds.
