*Diana Ross fans are getting a second Christmas present this year!
On the heels of the long-awaited, successful release of “Diana Ross Sings Songs From The Wiz,” Motown Universal is releasing a remastered, expanded version of The Supremes’ classic “Merry Christmas” album.
In addition to the original mono and subsequently released stereo version of the 1965 album, this reissue delivers bonus tracks including a never-before-heard version of “Silver Bells” that features an additional verse, the rare “Lonely Lonely Christmas”, and a prized version of “Silent Night” that features Florence Ballard on lead vocals. The album also includes a previously unreleased live version of “My Favorite Things” from a 1967 concert at the legendary Copa. The show was one of the final concerts by the original Supremes lineup, before Cindy Birdsong joined the rechristened Diana Ross & the Supremes.
