This looks amazing. Of course, you can take for granted that the Motortown Revue: The French EPs 1965 7-inch box set sounds amazing too.
As you might have guessed, this is a box of reissue Eps that were released in the French market only. 7-inch singles in France at the time were mainly EP releases, as opposed to in the UK where the two-song 7-inch was king. Of course, that makes the French releases very different to the UK ones, both in content and in terms of the cover imagery.
It also makes them rarities, with the originals of these releases fetching well into three figures each – if you can find them at all.
The tracks in the limited edition box are detailed below and if you want the vinyl set, it lands on 25th March 2016. You can pre-order now though, with Amazon selling the boxes for £48.99.
