The Motown Story, Vol. 1: The Sixties

Here is yet another reissue of the legendary (or infamous, depending on your point of view) Motown Story. The reason for its controversy exists simply in the fact that all these great hit songs have narration before them and after them by artists such as Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, and others. If you want the story with the songs, then this is for you; all the major cuts are here. However, how many times can you listen to the narration and interviews without wanting to simply get the music on your iPod? The problem is, they aren't separated like that. This thing is fine for libraries, but for the average listener, one trip through, twice on the outside, will be quite enough. ~ Thom Jurek
