Remember Me? Results 1 to 12 of Join Date Aug Posts 1, But I wonder, did the compilers use the mono masters, the stereo masters or did they mix it all up? Join Date Aug Posts Good question that I can't answer! If they were issued in stereo, I wonder if they used the correct mixes that were issued on the original albums, as quite a few were different ones to what had already been issued.
Maybe it's time for them to be issued on CD again. A project for Hip-O perhaps? Cheers Paul. I was indirectly involved with these releases but not in the studio when they were mastered. They used the stereo masters.
Interesting in many cases. Some stereo mixes used are slightly different from the traditional mixes often used. Join Dont Be Shy - Snap!
- Greatest Hits Nov Posts 3, Volume 2 originally Tamla was my favorite of the Thats What Love Is Made Of - Various - A Collection Of 16 Original Big Hits - Vol.
5 , because it had a few new recordings of some of the older tracks, such as "I'll Have to Let Him Go" by Martha and the Vandellas, and the long version of "Just Loving You" by Kim Weston which I hadn't heard before.
The stereo version of the LP came out several years after the original, Mono only, release, and it was a real surprise to hear new versions of a few of the songs. Martha's vocal on "Let Him Go" was much more melodic than on the original release.
It was also the track used on the Vandellas "Anthology," I believe. The CD of this volume does have the same stereo mixes and alternate versions of the tracks.

Thankfully I've managed to obtain all except Volume 7 which appears to have been unavailable for some time. It may still be possible to source brand new copies unwrapped of some of them.
I wonder why Volume 11 was never issued on CD? I also have all 11 on vinyl, but have never found the patience to compare tracks. The first one, of course, was issued with alternative covers on vinyl but not on CD.
A great set either way. Happy collecting! Join Date Nov Posts I agree with Kenneth that Volume 2 was my favourite also. I didn't buy them all but also remember that the volume that contains "Jimmy Mack" also was a different version. The UK also had a series of 8 volumes of 16 Big Hits at least originally - there have been others with that title since. Only Volumes 4 and 5 of the US series were issued Muy Linda - Various - Freaking Out At Court the UK and even then with volume numbers transposed.
The rest provide interesting contrast with the US sets, and I loved them because there was always something different to discover - especially as I was performing catch up having only come to Motown properly around I delighted in buying the original vinyls because alternate stereo mixes were often used. Volume 5 of the CD did not use the master tape that was the source of this album. Where Did Our Love Go? When I'm Gone is a bad mix of voice on one track and instrumentation on the other.
Volume 7 gives a reverb at the end of My Girl Has Gone that made the song. Join Date Apr Posts 1, I have this collection and it was pretty faithful to the vinyl pressings with a few exceptions.
For whatever reason, Vol. These CDs vary in the mixes used from the vinyl originals especially Volume 5 where a good deal of it is I mono as noted above. They were also issued as cassettes at the same time. There are earlier Ampex cassettes from the era of the vinyl copies, as well as reel to reel tapes from that period that do use stereo mixes.
Interestingly the first and second Thats What Love Is Made Of - Various - A Collection Of 16 Original Big Hits - Vol. 5 were issued as a reel to reel two on one in mono. I've always found this US Series fascinating.
I Anymore - Bad Sports - Living With Secrets to get original vinyl in both mono and stereo digitised and I listen to these.
They may not be quite as technically good as the cd re-issues but all the original different versions between the formats are there. The UK versions always seemed the poor cousins. I still play the US mono and stereo regularly and enjoy the differences despite having been reduced to one working ear!
The later UK versions probably seemed like "the poor cousins" because the hit Thats What Love Is Made Of - Various - A Collection Of 16 Original Big Hits - Vol. 5 started to be issued on Motown Chartbusters - a hugely successful series that went to 12 volumes. The first 3 volumes of 16 Big Hits were the real McCoy. Volumes 4 and 5 copied the USA volumes 5 and 4 respectively and as a result repeated many tracks.
