This is not just an amazing bargain, but an invaluable history of the more obscure beginnings of the Detroit music scene in the early 1960s. This album covers recordings that were mostly made before the 'Tamla Motown' branding took off all over the World,but with the artists and song writers that created the Tamla sound. I love the tracks by the Supremes that were recorded before they got their uniquely recognisable chart topping sound. Also, Little Stevie Wonder doing a copy of Ray Charles' 'Hallelujah I love her so' is food for the soul. Marvin Gaye,The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, The Marvelettes and some lesser known names are all here on 160 wonderful tracks of 1960s musical history. I absolutely love the whole lot.

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 ...?

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.

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

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
