5.0 out of 5 stars Smash hits and more 21 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Motown fan for 36 years. Heard it through the Grapevine was the first single I ever bought. I still listen to Motown, it still has the magic. Every song on this CD is a sing along, dance along and/or a tearjearker. The Motown magic that put them ahead of the rest, it's in every song. The CD is, all 3 discs, full of great songs. It's one of my most frequently played CD's. And if you think you are not a fan, I challenge you to listen, I'm certain you will find many songs that you will like and you'll become part of the Motown groove. I could add more Motown classics perhaps, but I would not delete a single track from what I consider to be a perfect CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive sixties Motown compilation 26 July 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This triple CD contains 81 tracks from the vaults of Motown, all except the opening track (Money that’s what I want) recorded in the sixties, generally regarded as Motown’s best period. British fans are often surprised when they first discover that Motown released their first single in 1959. It took almost five years before the British public embraced the sound of Motown.
So this British compilation includes only a few tracks from the early years and the ones chosen are sometimes familiar to Brits via cover versions or re-releases. Personally, I would have liked better representation of these early years, but the tracks chosen are Money that’s what I want, Shop around, Please Mr Postman, Do you love me, Beechwood 4-5789, Stubborn kind of fellow, Fingertips, Heatwave, How sweet it is, The way you do the things you do, Baby I need your loving and Needle in a haystack – every one a classic. There are many great songs from this period that were omitted, but if you are particularly interested in this period of Motown history, you must look for an American compilation or (as I did) buy compilations of the individual artists.
Motown became successful in Britain in 1964 when Baby love (Supremes) and My guy (Mary Wells) became huge hits. After that, there was no stopping the seemingly endless stream of hits, although a look at the singles charts will show that Motown were much more successful in America than in Britain at the time. The remainder of the sixties is strongly represented, with plenty of tracks from Marvin Gaye (solo and duets), Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops, Junior Walker and the all-stars, the Isley brothers, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas and Gladys Knight and the pips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every type of song for every type of mood 23 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having listened to Motown growing up, it's a pleasure to finally have a CD that brings so many good tracks together. The variety of artists and songs makes it an album to be listened to at any time. There are classics from Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder as well as thoses tracks you've heard and loved but never really knew who they were by. The CD gives a novice a wonderful chance to get in to the music of Tamla Motown, so it's a must for any real music fan. The sounds of Detroit are forever impressed on the music scene and this CD helps to capture that.

I need to add my voice to those one and two star reviews. This is one of the most disappointing CD's I've ever bought. This remastering of this glorious legacy is just either lazy, incompetent or cynical -probably all three. I already owned all this music on vinyl. I love this music. My kids love this music. Just to prove a point I converted some of my old vinyl to CD and made the same CD tracklist using this collection. I often play these two CDs for friends to compare - they just can't believe how much better the CD made from vinyl sounds. This is gourmet music served in a bucket - shame on the engineers and executives involved.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a shame ! 8 July 2008
By Hershey
Format:Audio CD
The sound of my generation on one 3 CD set. Brilliant.
Then, of course, it has to be digitally re-mastered. I assume that the person tasked with doing this has never heard these tracks before. Thanks to modern technology the bass part of the sound has all but disappeared. Gone are thrilling bass guitar intros, fat sax solos and the general under-pinning of one of the greatest studio sounds of all time.
How can one play this to the current generation and explain that this tinny sound allied with these trebly vocals inspired the youth of the 'sixties ?
Could it be that the current owners of this outstanding catalogue simply saw releasing this as a money making exercise ? Perish the thought.
After only one listening the set was relgated to the car. It only lasted once there, too !
What a shame !

5.0 out of 5 stars gold star! 10 July 2005
By gigi81
Format:Audio CD
what an album! i listen to this everyday. absolutely fantastic!
best tunes are the ones i've recently discovered. i play 'behind a painted smile' by the isley bros so much, i fear the CD will melt!! it is a phenomenal tune.
gladys knight and the pips' version of 'heard it through the grapevine' is totally different from marvin gaye's version but it is sensational.
of course, 'you keep me hangin' on', 'i was made to love her' and others are brilliant but this is a one hell of a CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh that's where it's from! 1 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
Motown is unbelievable. There are only a handful of record labels which have shaped the history of modern music, and Motown stands at the very top. There are some amazing tracks on this collection, indeed, many are amongst the most covered tracks in the history of modern music. The range of artists is also incredible: Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson (one of the best singer-songwriters of all time), the Supremes, the list goes on and on and on. This is one of the best collections going, across any genre.
