Product Description

Product Description

Detroit was and still is a hotbed of American music. The city is known for producing some of music's greatest artists including Diana Ross and Jackie Wilson, to name but two. The label you'd most associate with Detroit? Motown, of course. One you might not is Anna Records but you should. The Detroit-based label was a precursor to Motown and was born of the same stock. Sisters Anna and Gwen Gordy, siblings of Motown founder Berry, founded the label in 1958 along with singersongwriter Billy Davis and, although it was only in existence for less than half a decade, it provided a platform for a number of artists, some of which would go on to sit among America's greatest. The Gordy family's legacy speaks for itself, but Anna is a lesserknown foundation on which one of the biggest dynasties in US music was built. This two-disc collection includes 50 building blocks of the Motown empire.

In my opinion one of the best and most interesting of the series
nearly all the tracks were well produced early soul or R&B recordings .
My favourite tracks were Paul Gayton's "Hot Cross Buns" together with the Joe Tex Tracks
I think it goes without saying the Barrett Strong "Money" is obviously outstanding.
I also see Lamont Dozier under the guise of Lamont Anthony makes his debut.

Virtually the whole Anna Records catalogue on this bargain two disc set. I'd have to say the quality is variable, in particular there isn't much evidence of that Funk Brothers backing that came to define the Motown sound, even though some of them were session musicians at Anna - and Marvin Gaye played drums! But what the hey, Joe Tex will never let you down, and there's more than enough here to justify the purchase, not least David Ruffin and Lamont Anthony (aka Dozier). Definitely for anyone interested or who loves Motown.

I've been a fan of Tamla Motown since it was first introduced on the pirate radio stations Radio Caroline and later Radio London by Tony Blackburn back in 1964. This 2cd set is setting the sound as Anna Records 1959 to 1961 which was one of the forerunners of that Motown sound we all know and love. There are 40 tracks of pure pre-Motown magic as issued in the USA. Amongst the artists appearing here are David Ruffin, Barrett Strong, Paul Gayten, Falcons and Joe Tex amongst others. It is a fact that these early tracks would see little or no play here in the UK which makes them very unique for anyone who likes the records of Motown. I'd often wondered what these fine tracks would sound like and I'm a little biased when I say I love them all. I like the history of Motown and this great 2cd set, copied from vinyl singles of the day, is well worth a visit. Enjoy this slice of nostalgia and wonder where all the years went from 1959 to 1961! Happy listening.
