5.0 out of 5 stars Rare
160 Rare and more often found Motown tracks, all for less than a pint of lager. What`s not to like?

3.0 out of 5 stars Lot's of beats for your buck, but...
If it's volume of music you're after, this is the collection for you, but if your after hours of listening pleasure you might be disappointed.

There's some great artists here, but these aren't their best songs. Perhaps they come from their earlier works, a bit too much doo-wop and not enough soul or R&B. So as a history lesson it's pretty good, but don't expect...

There's some great artists here, but these aren't their best songs. Perhaps they come from their earlier works, a bit too much doo-wop and not enough soul or R&B. So as a history lesson it's pretty good, but don't expect their finest works.

There are some good tunes definitely worth a spin (a previous reviewer mentioned Little Stevie Wonder who is heavily featured), but you will have to skim past some fairly average stuff. The quality also sounds a bit flat, perhaps this was the production techniques but I suspect higher priced compilations would provide a richer sound.

For any Motown fan this is great and at this price it is cheaper than uploading tracks from your own collection! If you have only just discovered Motown this will give you a good insight into where the artists came from but if you are already a hardened fan then there is not much here you are not likely to have already in your collection.

Best value collection i have ever bought, glad price was so good as i already have over 120 of these on vinyl, but a great start up for anyone interested in the soul of the 60's

The amount of classic 60s Soul music on offer here for such a low low price is astonishing. These artists are some of the greatest names in Soul, and many of these songs are not familiar to me - and I have been listening to Soul since the 60s.

Not all tracks may appeal to everyone of course, each to their own. But thirty years ago I could not have conceived of buying such a massive treasure chest of hard-to-find Soul for such a knock-down price.

I couldn't cite individual artists here for greatness, they are all legends. Suffice to say, this must surely be the best ever deal for rare soul. I wonder if Stax might do the same ...?
