Meet the Supremes is the debut studio album by The Supremes, released in late 1962 on Motown. The LP includes the group's earliest singles: "I Want a Guy", "Buttered Popcorn", "Your Heart Belongs to Me" and "Let Me Go the Right Way". The earliest recordings on this album, done between fall 1960 and fall 1961, feature the Supremes as a quartet composed of teenagers Diane Ross, Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, and Barbara Martin.

Meet The Supremes (album). Right On. Diana Ross & The Supremes Anthology. The Supremes Live! in Japan. Let the Sunshine In. Diana Ross & The Supremes Sing and Perform "Funny Girl". Scherrie led "The Supremes" into the Disco era, and remained with the group until its final days. The last official Supreme was singer and songwriter, Susaye Greene who filled in for Cindy Birdsong when she decided to leave the group for good in 1976.

The romantic and sentimental "Your Heart Belongs to Me," written by Smokey Robinson, should have been the Supremes' first hit. It's every bit as charming as his chartbusters for Mary Wells. Diana Ross' sweet tender lead, assisted by Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard's warm harmonies, could melt icebergs.

The Supremes is a 2000 box set compilation of the material by Motown's most popular act of the 1960s, The Supremes. The set covers The Supremes' entire recording history, from its first recordings as The Primettes in 1960 to its final recordings in 1976. The set is four compact discs long; a bonus disc, An Evening with The Supremes, contained mostly unreleased live recordings and was included in the first 25,000 sets.

In fact, Motown itself liked the cover so much it repeated it for the album "The Marvelettes. Actually, this isn't an album, but singles and recordings that might have become singles. The exception is three songs written and recorded expressly for the album, all of them recorded on the same afternoon. Mary Wilson clearly remembers Florence Ballard not being at the session and herself recording background vocals twice. By the time they made "More Hits By The Supremes" the group had already had three consecutive number one hits and were on their way to set a record with two more, both included on this album. The group was absolutely on top here, harmonies in perfect tune and totally in sync with the ever hot Motown band delivering on every number.

Preceding their 1962 debut album, Meet the Supremes, it was the group’s only single to foreground the group’s original lead vocalist, Florence Ballard, who had also fronted their pre-Supremes incarnation, the Primettes. The Supremes’ name change was meant to increase the wattage of Ross’s starpower, but the group’s golden touch crackled only intermittently in the aftermath.

Notes

A 1965 Transition Pressing LP - Stereo Variation
11 Tracks On Vinyl and Listed on the Label
10 Tracks listed on the back cover
Inner label rim deep cut press
Thick card Paste-board back sleeve
Detroit Red Star above the 'T', 2648 W. Grand Boulevard address label design.

This is the 1964 track listing that was released with the new front cover design of the 'The Faces Close-Up'.
The vinyl plays the 1965 stereo version.
This issue has the correct 1965 front cover that matches up with the label and the vinyl, but the 1962 back cover.
This would have been done either by accident, or to use up leftover rear paste-boards by the pressing plant who either didn't notice the change, or couldn't care.
