Great Set But...
on 11 July 2011
I am a compilation junkie and I looked at this set and thought it would be a good addition to my collection. If you like motown, or just discovered it and you haven't got much, this is as good a set as any to start you off. All the usual suspected and favourites are included, and some unusual and less well known ones as well but, I guess it is a part of the course that over the years there have been so many collections issued that there comes a time when the same old tracks get pedalled out time and again, and, having looked through this set, I have concluded that this is one of those.
For me, there were only 9 tracks that I have not got on either other Motown collections of some other 'pop' or 'oldies' compilation. Yes, it is a good prices, and it would still save me money if I bought the whole set, just for the 9 tracks, and I guess that is why single downloads are priced as they are, so you don't just 'cherry pick'.
If you have not got much Motown, and want a good selection to get you going, then go for it. Otherwise, there is not much that is different from what is currently available on other Motown sets.
