Ain't No Place Like Motown!,
This review is from: A Cellarful Of Motown! (Audio CD)
A MUST BUY is "A Cellarful of Motown", a 2 CD set of 40 of the hottest dance-floor cuts from the classic Detroit era of this much-loved label.
Among my favorites are: Frank Wilson's infectious "My Sugar Baby" (which would have been a sure-fire hit if he had ever had a single released on the label), Chris Clark (getting her first ever official CD release of Frank Wilson's excellent "Do I Love You", which removed his vocals and replaced them with hers), Tammi Terrell's haunting original version of the Stevie Wonder composition "All I Do" (which Stevie recorded over a decade later on his "Hotter Than July" album), Martha & The Vandellas' catchy "(It's So Easy To Fall In Love) With A Guy Like You", Jr. Walker and the All Stars' joyous "Riding High On Love" (previously released only on vinyl, though), Kim Weston's smooth-as-silk "Don't Let Me Down", and The Velvelettes' spirited anthem "Ain't No Place Like Motown", a sentiment with which I heartily agree! "Baby A Go-Go"!
Why some of these gems weren't released when they were originally recorded will remain a mystery, but you're guaranteed to find a cellarful of your own favorites on this classy collection of cuts that sounds more like a greatest hits compilation than a couple of discs of previously unreleased tracks!
