Please try again later. Verified Purchase. This entire series is amazing. I believe it will be completed at the publication of the 12th volume, and each volume has 5 or 6 discs. I am up to Volume 9, and I can't really say there has yet been a single weak song. And I have now discovered so many awesome Motown songs I had never even heard before! This truly is a treasure trove. Yes, some songs are better than others, but all the music from this amazing dozen-year Motown era is great.
Elegance just pours out from each disc Dream - Various - Exclusives Vol. 8 (Vinyl), it is unprecedented and will never be equaled in the future. I've been surprised to learn that there are styles of music other than soul on the Motown label. There is some very good country music as well. These discs also have a smattering of interviews and some other holiday-type nonsense which are very fun to hear and which puts the entire era in context.
The packaging for the entire series is the best I've ever seen. It is a little hard Dream - Various - Exclusives Vol. 8 (Vinyl) hold the book open so you can pull out or put in the discs, but this is a minor struggle and it is well worth it. The discs are held tightly in place and are well protected, and the historical information about any particular song is readily accessible. The 45 disc which slots into the front cover is really an innovative and clever flourish, and it gives the volume's book a really nice upgrade.
Okay, here is the bummer, and it is a major one. If you are like me, you are going to want the entire series if you buy even a single volume. You will buy the first volume and you will immediately realize that it is a worthwhile investment to obtain the entire series. And who really wants to own only part of a series of anything? The cost of even one volume here is enough that you'll probably want the entire collection.
Well, as I write Dream - Various - Exclusives Vol. 8 (Vinyl), in January ofvolume 6 is no longer available. Yes, I've searched eBay relentlessly for months, with no luck at all.
Yes, I've searched the virtual catacombs of international online sellers, with no luck at all. So, I'm already over a thousand bucks into this series and yet my collection is missing one of the best volumes it covers when a lot of the talent was at their crescendos. I've twice emailed Hip-O Select Records, the publisher, and not heard a word back. I've called their customer service, and they were clueless and indifferent.
The girl who answered the phone for them did not know a thing about the series. Basically what has happened, by proclaiming this as a "Limited Edition," is that they have created an inducement for various opportunistic sellers to hoard the best volumes and then to gouge Motown fans later when the inventory held by legitimate sellers is gone. They then jack the price up into the stratosphere. So, one can only hope that Hip-O Select does another run of these amazing Motown volumes.
If you are a Motown fan, you will be astonished when you Dream - Various - Exclusives Vol. 8 (Vinyl) all the incredible treasures which this series contains. She would also marry and divorce Stevie Wonder, Dream - Various - Exclusives Vol. 8 (Vinyl), but all of that will happen in the next years. Knight as always, gives it her best in the singles that were released inespecially "The End Of Our Road".
You had to fight to get noticed by Berry Gordy, and the history of how "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" was released, twice, is a revelation in itself. One person found this helpful. Presented here is another volume in the acclaimed 'Complete Motown Singles' series. Among the obvious, there were new artists that tried, but didn't make their mark, like Chuck Jackson, one of my favorite artists, but was under-utilized at Motown.
Again, the quality is superb, and again, if you have purchased the previous volumes, it would make perfect sense to pick this one up, before they are all gone, as these are limited in pressing.

I am very happy with this Complete Motown Singles - Volume 8, It has great Motown music on it and comes with a great book with lots of information and photos of Motown artist. Another great Motown year which reflects the turbulent times of First of all, the sound is peerless with almost all songs in the mono that they were originally released as 45s and what songs!
The highlights are too any to list and the lowlights merely nitpicking yes, Motown released a few clunkers So good to hear some of the more obscure Motown acts like the Elgins, Edwin Starr, Monitors and the way under rated Marvellettes Get this great selection while supplies last.
