Notes

Digitally remastered from the original analog master tapes using 24-Bit Technology at Universal Mastering Studios East. Discs 1, 2 and 3 by Suha Gur; Disc 4 by Jeff Willens.

Original mono singles masters were used on disc 1, tracks 5, 7, 10, 11 and 12; disc 2, tracks 11 and 13; disc 3, track 18; and disc 4, track 1 and 2. The familiar hit tracks on discs 1-3 were sourced from the stereo mixes found on the original Diana Ross & The Supremes' Greatest Hits albums. Disc 4 sources also include original stereo singles and album masters. "Tears Of Sorrow" and "Pretty Baby" were transferred to digital by Walter DeVenne, our thanks to him. Other tracks were sourced from the original stereo album masters or outtake reels, except those newly mixed, as noted below.

Stop! In The Name Of Love (alternate), Shake, Take Me Where You Go, People, Everything Is Good About You, The Happening (demo), All I Know About You, When You Wish Upon A Star, Somewhere (Live), You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You (Live), TCB, Are You Sure Love Is The Name Of This Game and Stormy were mixed from the original analog session tapes on vintage equipment by Suha Gur at Universal Mastering Studios-East.

Essays by Berry Gordy, and Brian Chin and Nathan Jones. Edited by Harry Weinger. Much appreciation and love to our interviewees, especially Ms. Suzanne de Passe, and Cholly Atkins, Harold Beatty, Shelly Berger, Janie Bradford, Johnny Bristol, Dick Clark, Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, Edward Holland Jr., Bob Jones, Freda Payne, Professor Maxine Powell, Scott Regan, Claudette Robinson, Luther Vandross, Dionne Warwick, and Frank Wilson.

A note on the track annotations: Recording dates are culled from the original Detroit session logs, which were begun in summer 1961 to coordinate the bookings of the basement studio at 2648 West Grand Boulevard. The logs generally do not list recording dates for live tapings or "outside" sessions – i.e., New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles - unless the dates were noted upon the tapes' return to Detroit. The earliest songs collected here were recorded either without overdubs or the vocals were overdubbed in the same day as the backing tracks. On later sessions, as recording became more sophisticated, backing tracks were laid down first, then various overdubs or re-cuts were made over successive days – usually, but not exclusively, meaning the addition of horns, lead vocals, background vocals, strings and other elements – hence the multiple recording dates. The Detroit logs were discontinued in September 1974. Recordings after that date cannot be accurately determined, but they generally took place a few months before the single or album release date.
