5.0 out of 5 stars meaningful, emotional and mystical, September 3, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown : An Autobiography (Audio Cassette)
i continue to feel a sense of awe as i read. what ever was in the background of the story, the truth on the surface is that, motown's blessing was berry gordy. consider being locked in a destiny filled with certain failure and uncertain success. your vision emerges beyond your wildest dreams to change the landscape of the music sceen. memories of yesterday and statements of today are still reflected in the music of motown. magic or god? determination or wisdome? for a black man, this was uncharted teritory. for the white man it was thought to be protected. there was no sense of invasion or conquest as fun and joy mixed with sorrow and sadness. the success and accomplishment mingled with struggle and desension. survival slowly became the motto of the day. the reality of the entertainment world and the almighty dollar loured conflict like vultures to rob the safety of the domain. berry gordy was chosen for this at birth and only god understands for surely god has been and is with this man and his vision. the music has been and still is a wonderful and joyful pleasure.the world has become a wonderful place full of riches and promise for so many people because of how god used and still is using this man. i pray god will always be his strength.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, April 10, 2000
This review is from: To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown : An Autobiography (Audio Cassette)
I really enjoyed this book. I'd always been intrigued by the way Motown was run and this explained a lot. Like any biography it may be a little biased in places but it just doesn't matter. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent autobiography, December 9, 1999
This review is from: To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown : An Autobiography (Audio Cassette)
I higly recommend "To Be Loved" for those who love the sound of Motown, music aficienadoes, or those who enjoy auto-bio's. However, the only problem I had with this is the fact that the audiocassette is abridged, thanks to the publisher. Regardless, this is a highly engrossing true-life tale.
