ABOUT THIS ALBUM

___

Where Did Our Love Go is the second studio album by Motown singing group The Supremes, released in 1964. The album includes several of the group’s singles and B-sides from 1963 and 1964. Included are the group’s first Billboard Pop Singles number-one hits, Where Did Our Love Go“, “Baby Love, and Come See About Me, as well as their first Top 40 hit, When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes, and the singles A Breathtaking Guy and Run, Run, Run.

With the release of this album, The Supremes became the first act in Billboard magazine history to have three number-one hits from the same album.

It was also, at the time, the highest-ranking album by an all-female group. It remained in the #2 position for 4 consecutive weeks in January 1965, having been shut out of the top spot by the Beatles’ blockbuster Beatles ’65 album.

Of the 12 tracks featured from the album, two were written by Smokey Robinson. Eight songs, including the Supremes three number one singles, were written by (what would be) Motown’s greatest song-writing, hit making trio, Holland-Dozier-Holland.

Where Did Our Love Go remained on the Billboard album chart for an unprecedented 89 weeks. According to Motown data, the album ultimately sold over 3,000,000 copies. This album was also the first ever number one album on Billboard’s R&B album chart in January 1965. (Source: Wikipedia; All-Music)
