Released as a tie-in with Valentine's Day 2009, Motown's Love Songs
series gave roughly the same treatment to five of its artists: 12 highlights dealing with love and heartache, decent no-frills packaging, $10 retail price. Along with Smokey Robinson
, Gladys Knight & the Pips
, the Jackson 5
, and the Commodores
, Diana Ross & the Supremes
were made part of the series, and while there are some essential singles here -- "Stop! In the Name of Love," "I Hear a Symphony," "Someday We'll Be Together" -- the disc should be seen as a sampler rather than a proper anthology. "Come See About Me" and "Where Did Our Love Go," at the very least, should be on any Supremes
compilation, regardless of purpose.
