More Info:

2 CDs / 40 Tracks - Remastered from the analog tapes this definitive collectors edition features material which Gladys recorded in her early career between 1961 and 1965, before joining Motown. A majority of tracks were recorded for Producer Bobby Robinson's Fury and Enjoy labels, along with later material recorded for the Maxx label under the direction of Van McCoy. Includes her first hits 'Every Beat of My Heart' and 'Letter Full of Tears,' Don Covay's 'Come See About Me,' and many great early Soul classics. Includes carefully annotated liner notes; this is the most complete and best sounding retrospect of her and the Pips formative years. Sunset Blvd Records will donate $1.00 from each unit sold of Essential 1961 - 1965 to Black Lives Matter.
