EDITORS’ NOTES

This set does a fine job of capturing many of the company's most recognizable tracks - particularly from the classic '60s and '70s eras. The bluesy wails of Marvin Gaye and the Temptations' David Ruffin sit alongside the cooing Diana Ross and the Supremes and the funky dance-floor stomp of Jr. Walker and the All-Stars. Later hits by Ross and Lionel Ritchie and Boyz II Men show the label's ongoing ability to grab the zeitgeist's brass ring.

KellyOmaha,

A good introduction to Motown... a music a treasure... but including Boyz II Men in the same catagory as these icons tells you something about the so-so catch-all approach to this collection. If you own no Detroit soul, buy it. If you want to become a real fan, start investing in collections of each of these amazing artists. (also look for "Standing in the Shadow of Motown" for a fantastic, contemporary selection tunes that put talents of the Funk Brothers ... the back up band on many of these... on display!)

MICHAEL MCDONALD?!?

kgal,

Though I'm not a big fan of compilations, this is full of some pretty great songs...and then the grand finale is...michael mcdonald?!? seriously?!? that's just wrong.
