Coming soon: Baby I’ve Got It! More Motown Girls (Kent)

The first volume appeared back in 2013 and the second one in 2015. So time for a third – Baby I’ve Got It! More Motown Girls is now available to pre-order.

Basically if you love your Motown you are going to buy this regardless. It;s a collection of rarities and unissued recordings from the Kent offshoot of Ace Records. I probably don’t need to say anymore. But I will.

Of the 24 tracks on ‘Baby I’ve Got It!’, 14 are previously unissued and 10 were first made available as ‘Motown Unreleased’ downloads between 2014 and 2017. The tracks were recorded between 1961 and 1969 and mainly uptempo. All with the trademark Motown sound of course.

The collection opens with ‘In My Heart I Know It’s Right’, the first song Gladys Knight & the Pips recorded for Motown, and closes with Kim Weston. In between you’ll find the likes of the Marvelettes, Brenda Holloway, Martha & the Vandellas – alongside lesser-known collector’s favourites such as Liz Lands and LaBrenda Ben.

30th March is the release date, but you can pre-order now. It sells for £13.97.
