Lot's of beats for your buck, but...
on 29 July 2013
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 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.
