This is not a straight forward clips DVD. The full programme has 16 clips of music interspersed with interview segments from Otis Williams. Where the tracks were lip synched on the original performance a stereo mix has been used instead, but not always the original stereo mix. For some reason two Tom Moulton mixes from The Motown Box were used. It's a shame the mono mixes were not used which is presumably what would have been used at the time of broadcast/recording. (I'm not a mono supremacist, however the 60s Motown single mixes seem to be very good and have greater impact from what I have heard.) Where the track was a unique performance, the audio for that performance has been used. None of the tracks use true 5.1, all appear to be upmixed from stereo, or even mono. Sometimes this works okay, but I found that listening to a long stetch of the DVD was unpleasant in 5.1.
Fifteen of the sixteen songs featured are available with isolated vocal tracks. If the performance section has a live performance, this is replaced in the vocal section by a moving montage of pictures, as the isolated vocals are from the studio recordings. Interesting, but be prepared for a few passages of silence, e.g. about two minutes of nothing at the beginning of Papa Was a Rollin' Stone!
Interesting, and some nice footage, but don't get it if you're only looking for 5.1 mixes.
