One of Motown’s best loved female acts of the 70s and 80s finally receives a long overdue overview of her first recordings from 1967-70.

These tracks were recorded when Syreeta was still being marketed by Motown as Rita Wright. Only two were issued at the time of recording. A formidable 17 are seeing the light of day here for the first time. She was teamed with many of Motown’s top producers of the period, including Ashford & Simpson, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Hal Davis, Hank Cosby and her future husband Stevie Wonder. All brought top-drawer material to the table in the hope of finding her a hit.

The CD includes what appears to be a completed and shelved 1970 album for Motown’s Mowest subsidiary, featuring her versions of Motown classics by the Miracles, Chris Clark and Marvin Gaye, among others. Continued interest in Syreeta Wright’s later Motown material is sure to fuel strong demand for this strong package.

It features a detailed note and comprehensive annotations from acknowledged Motown expert Keith Hughes.- Ace Records
