4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 Mar 2005
Format: Audio CD
Although Motown were really strong at this time, there are few big UK hits here. Reflections (Diana Ross and the Supremes) and If I were a carpenter (Four Tops) made the UK top ten, while Gotta see Jane (R Dean Taylor) made the UK top twenty. The remaining tracks here were only minor UK hits although some were huge hits in America.
Despite their limited impact on the UK charts at the time, many of these tracks are now regarded as classics and rightly so. Perhaps Brits weren't ready for them at the time or perhaps the quality of music around at the time was such that they didn't get the attention they deserved.
Anyway, the other tracks include the first hit version of I heard it through the grapevine - Gladys Knight's version was recorded at around the same time as Marvin Gaye's but was thought to be the best choice for release as a single. History shows they were wrong but I enjoy both versions. Marvin's two duets with Tammi Terrell (Ain't nothing like the real thing, If I could build my world around you) and the two Stevie Wonder tracks (I'm wondering, Shoo be doo be doo da day) are among the other highlights.
Nevertheless, it seems strange that Walk away Renee (Four Tops) is missing. It's not the only big Four Tops hit missing from this series - Reach out I'll be there and Bernadette are also missing - so I guess there was some contractual problem.
Despite the surprising lack of big UK hits, this is a great compilation of some of Motown's classic songs from the sixties.

THE REASON I LIKE THIS ALBUM IS I BOUGHT THE ORIGINAL LP WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER WITH MY DINNER MONEY I HAD SAVED UP.I HAD A RED DANSETTE MONO RECORD PLAYER IN MY BEDROOM AND I USED TO PLAY IT A LOT.THIS PERIOD OF MOTOWN IN MY OPINION IS THE BEST.I LOUE GLADYS KNIGHT I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPVINE THEN AND STILL DO 2DAY.I NOTE THERE IS NOT A TRACK BY THE MARVELLETTES ON THIS ALBUM MY BABY MUST BE A MAGICIAN WOULD OF BEEN A BETTER CHOICE THAN FOUR TOPS IF I WERE A CARPENTER .A GREAT CD
