Kevin Gray on Motown in Mono

To explain Kevin Gray said: “There was a big reason why mono was a great thing for Motown – the emphasis then was radio.” He continues, “They did special mixes in mono, intended for radio, and those are the ones we grew up listening to.” Gray concludes by saying “It’s been very rewarding to work on them, and they sounded very, very good.”

Important to realize, “Reflections” and “Sophisticated Soul” have never before been commercially released in mono. Equally important, the mono LPs for “You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me” (also generally known, from the album’s cover art, as “The Fabulous Miracles”), “Reach Out” and “The Temptations Sing Smokey” are long out-of-print and rare. So all five albums will be released as a collective LP set with a custom turntable slipmat. Finally, it will come out on November 8th via Motown/UME.
