2.0 out of 5 stars Buy some new socks instead 14 Feb 2003
Format:Audio CD
Most of the music on this CD is excellent, but a lot of it isn't what I'd call Motown. With the title "No.1 Motown Album", Universal had a chance to compile an excellent Album, if only they'd tried a little harder. Literally half the songs feature either Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross or Michael Jackson (with or without their respective bands). How creative! And why are there 5 average songs from the 1990's instead of more 60's gems?
What's more, the digital remastering is absolutely awful. The songs don't sound crisp, the vocals are too distant and the bass is too loud and muffled.
The lack of effort that was put into the artwork sums the album up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs to smile by... 20 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Uncomplicated, mood-lifting, sing-along motown classics. A spin of this CD will never fail to get your face smiling and feet tapping. For dance or romance give this a chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars oh my god!!!! 17 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you have any clue about music then this is the c-d 4 u. Just look at the track listing! If the three generations of my household fight over it, then surely theres a good vibe in the c-d. Top tune, top order, top musicians, top everything, TOP ALBUM!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars totally relaxing! 5 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I just can't stop listening to this compilation. Motown relaxes anyone, any time, anywhere, and this collection is the perfect example. It doesn,t matter what music you like, you cannot deny the genius of The Commodores or the fact that Gladys Knight has just put sex on a plastic disc.

2.0 out of 5 stars Remaster Disaster 9 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the main events of a Motown hit is the production, this collection manages to bypass that in favour of the beat. It brushes aside those hours of delicate studio work for drums and stifled vocals. Spend hours trying to puzzle the music back into it on an equaliser or buy an old Chartbuster version. Two stars as they kept the original songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Compilation! 27 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a review for soul + r&b fans, who want an excellent buy - this double CD will definately do the job! All of the compilation reminded me of what happiness can be made from. The digital remastering is excellent, and brings back the great sounds that Motown Records were achieving when they originally released the songs between the 1960s and 1990s. Don't forget that Motown Records was releasing new singles and albums as regular as clockwork. Being possitive about gems like "Being With You" by Smokey Robinson, "Easy" by Commodores and "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" by Marvin Gaye with Tammi Terrell are fine examples of what Motown expected from their largely black performers. Purchasing this double CD would definately be a recommended suggestion, especially if you want to try out a type of soul that makes you think "where can I get more from?". You'll be very pleased if you do get it!! It was a re-introduction into music that I was originally unsure about. Hunt around if you want to hear more about Motown Records, and their glorious past - because their future looks bright and rosy to me!
