Limited edition 180gr LP
The Supremes A’ Go-Go marked the group’s first number one pop album. It is presented here in its rarely heard MONO MIX, which according to many reviews has more punch and immediacy than the Stereo version. Various compilations had skimmed the most familiar songs off of other Supremes’ albums, but the concept behind Supremes A’ Go-Go was to get the group to cover some of the top hits of other (mostly Motown) acts. As a result, every song on the album was familiar in name, and only “You Can’t Hurry Love” was culled for any hits packages. A number one album on the pop and R&B charts, Supremes A’ Go-Go also benefited from the fact that the album didn’t include any pop standards or slow ballads, just solid R&B dance numbers. It was the first LP by an all-female group to reach number-one on the Billboard 200 album charts in the United States. The LP contains two of the Supremes’ top ten Billboard Hot 100 singles: the #9 hit “Love Is Like an Itching in My Heart” and the #1 hit “You Can’t Hurry Love”.
