The American funk/soul band Commodores peaked in the late 1970s through the mid-1980s with some wonderful hit classics, like ''Just to Be Close to You'', ''Easy'', ''Three Times a Lady'', ''Still'' and ''Lady (You Bring Me Up)''. Our exclusive Commodores Collected release contains all these classics, supplemented with fan favourites and other tracks from their impressive oeuvre.
Commodores' long association with Motown began as a result of a tour opening for the Jackson 5 in 1971. With their brass musicians and co-lead singer Lionel Richie they reached to fame by releasing their first R&B number one hit ''Slippery When Wet''. It meant the start of an impressive career, with seven number one songs and a host of other top 10 hits on the Billboard charts. In 1982 Lionel Richie left the band to pursue a solo career.
Commodores Collected is available as a limited first pressing of 2.500 individually numbered copies on gold (Disc 1) and red (Disc 2) vinyl.
