Later albums in the series failed to include any of the top ten singles achieved by Stevie Wonder, or any of his releases. Where Did Our Love Go" by the Supremes, and " My Guy" by Mary Wells were amongst other big hits in the same year, also on Stateside. Minor hits were sometimes included in place of bigger hits, most notably for the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Mary Wells' hit 'My Guy' features on Volume 7, released in 1972, after it had been a substantive reissue hit, despite being first released in 1964 and similarly 'Baby Love' is included on Volume 9, as it had been re-issued in 1974, ten years after it first charted in the UK for The Supremes. Motown Chartbusters is a series of compilation albums first released by EMI under licence on the Tamla Motown label in Britain. Over the next few years, several more compilations were released, including six in the series 16 Original Big Hits. The first nine albums were Top 15 UK Albums Chart entries, whereas the later albums from 10 to 12 did not chart. After its success in the UK, Motown went on to release variants of the compilation format in other counties such as the United States and Australia.
