I have this LP which came out in the mid-70s. The last track on side 2, Bad Weather, was published in 1973. So 1971 is too early for it to have been released. I would probably have been too young to have bought it then anyway.

Highlights are Bridge Over Troubled Water at a slow, mellow pace, without becoming more R&B like Aretha Franklin's more animated cover version. This album also has a Supremes' cover of The Beatles' Come Together as well as some of their more widely available/known hits. You can still find this LP on retro sites but maybe one more for the collector.

The version of Stoned Love on this album I think is better than that on some other "greatest hits" albums as is Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.

This is a budget compilation of their work post Diana Ross & The Supremes which still showcases The Supremes' vocal skills and harmonies really well. MFP were a budget label under EMI who rereleased material for budget/chain stores such as the now demised Woolworths. Some of the lesser known tracks may have been B sides at one time but at a budget price, the album was certainly worth it back then.
