Editorial Reviews

As the perfect companion piece to Motown: The Musical, this special two-disc, expanded version features over 20 additional tracks to the single disc version including Motown's very first national hit, 'Money (That's What I Want)' by Barrett Strong. This 1960 hit single was co-written by Gordy and helped fund the purchase of the iconic white framed house, Hitsville U.S.A., that served as a twenty-four hour hit-making and artist development factory, fostering the artistic talent of the singers, writers, producers as well as corporate executives, and was headquarters for the next decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect souvenir from "Motown: The Musical" May 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This past weekend I saw Motown: The Musical when I was in New York. Since this Broadway musical was such a great experience (more on that later), I first decided to check out the original Broadway cast recording. I was in for quite a surprise (and not in the best of ways). Then I noticed that there is this compilation, a parallel release that is intended to give a more complete overview of the songs heard in the musical.

"Motown: The Musical - The Classic Songs That Inspired The Broadway Show" (2 CDs; 40 tracks; 133 min.) offers a generous sampling from the 50 or so songs that appear in the Broadway show. Better yet: unlike the Broadway cast recording, these songs are NOT mashed up in medleys but in fact are the originals songs (by the original artists of course). Starting with the Temptations' "Get Ready", the songs on this compilation more or less follow the order in which they appear on the Broadway show (but not always). There are a couple of nice surprises on here, including the Contours' "Do You Love Me', which I didn't realize was a Motown release, but also "Shotgun" by J. Walker and the Allstars (which are featured in the show, but are not included in the Broadway cast recording). Most of the other songs and the tried-and-true Motown classics. And yes, Diana Ross (solo or with the Supremes) gets about 10 songs on here (1/4 of the total), as it reflects the prominent role that Diana Ross plays in the Broadway musical. Bottom line: if you are looking for a souvenir of the Broadway show, you are much better served with this generous 2 CD compilation, as opposed to the 45 min. Broadway cast recording, which in my book does not work well as a stand-alone (without the visuals of the actual Broadway show).

Finally, as to the show itself: it's a blast!

Forget the musical. This is the best compilation of Motown classics for anyone just starting their collection. You'll recognize every song on this CD and the price is nice. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't sit still. June 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are so many good songs on this CD that you can't sit still. One of my favorite Four Tops songs is Sugar Pie, Honey Bun, ( I can't help myself). Every time I hear that song, I have to get up and dance. You will also be singing along to every track on the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgot how good it was.
Just saw the road show in Chicago. I was in jr high in 1959, so I knew EVERY song. Having the originals simply meant I could enjoy the entire song, not just a line or two.
