Motown/UMe unveils Motown Unreleased: 1969, a collection comprising no fewer than 60 previously unissued studio recordings made during that momentous year in the company’s history.

The new set, part of the continuing 60th anniversary celebrations of the peerless label, includes newly-available tracks by some of the greatest Motown stars, including Diana Ross & the Supremes, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Gladys Knight & the Pips and Jr. Walker & the All Stars.

The album follows last December’s two-part Motown Unreleased: 1968. It emphasizes the extraordinary depth of the unrivalled Motown roster and the sheer diversity of material that was produced by the company during 1969. In a time of social and musical change, the label continued to set the pace, and the material in the anthology is a reflection of Motown’s ever-expanding vision, with seminal albums soon to emerge from such giants as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and the Temptations.

All 60 tracks on the set have been mastered, for the first time, at Studio 4 by Phil Nicolo from their original analog master tapes. These were individually selected by Motown A&R specialists from UMG’s secure storage facilities. Half of the tracks were sourced from their original Motown mixes and the rest mixed, for the first time for this release, by Obie O’Brien at Mixville USA and John Morales at M+M Mix Studios.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – UNI/MOTOWN Studio Masters

Tracks 1-18, 21-48, 50, 53-55, 57-60 – contains high-resolution digital transfers of material originating from an analogue master source
Tracks 19, 49, 51, 52 – 44.1 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 96 kHz / 24-bit
Tracks 20, 56 – 48 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 96 kHz / 24-bit

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
