Format:Audio CD
A half century ago, a young Detroit entrepreneur named Berry Gordy Jr. decided that he was going to start his own record company. His idea was a simple one really. He was going to make records with black artists that appealed to the largest segment of the record buying public which in those days was suburban white teenagers. His formula worked to perfection. So much so that 50 years later "The Motown Sound" is still a significant force in American popular music. In celebration of its 50th anniversary Motown presents "Motown 50 Fanthology", an incredible 2 disc collection featuring 45 Motown favorites selected by a nationwide poll of Motown fans. A better Motown compilation you will not find anywhere.

In the 1960's Motown billed itself as "The Sound of Young America". It most certainly was. You could not listen to a Top 40 station in those days for more than 10 or 15 minutes without hearing a Motown hit. It was a great time to be a teen! Experience for yourself the energy and sheer excitement of classic Motown hits by artists like The Four Tops ( "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)"), The Supremes ("Stop! In The Name of Love"), The Temptations ("My Girl"), Martha & The Vandellas ("Dancing In The Street") and Steve Wonder ("My Cherie Amour"). All in all, " Motown 50 Fanthology" presents about a dozen and a half of the prime Motown singles from the 1960's. Fantastic stuff!

In the early 1970's Motown left Detroit and headed west to Los Angeles. Artists like The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles and Stevie Wonder continued to churn out the hits. Check out the track listing to discover which tunes are included here. At the same time there was a new generation of artists at Motown led by The Jackson 5.

All the best of Motown, on 2 CDs! The fans did a wonderful job with this grouping of songs! I bought this for my oldest sister for Christmas. She was thrilled, & I was overly thrilled to get the instant free Rip download to my Cloud Player. I love the perks of being a Prime member!
