The son of a plasterer, Berry Gordy Jr. 45 years ago began building the best-known record company of the 20th century from the ground up. By accident and then design, he did so in America's heartland, away from its traditional music capitals. And the iconic map of Detroit he had printed in the centre of almost every Motown 45 became more than a lesson in geography. Calling out around the world, the music and artists associated with that label and that enterprise empowered a generation, and has influenced the sound of popular music ever since. The Detroit bloodline still pulses through modern music, just as the songs have become integrated into America's cultural heritage, resonating 'round the globe in the new century. One recent example: Michael McDonald's admiring album of interpretations, Motown, is a platinum record in the U.S. and earned a pair of Grammyr nominations.
  • Genre: Popular Music
  • Motown #1's - Motown #1's [CD]

Performer Notes
  • Compilation producers: Jeff Moskow, Harry Weinger.
  • Includes liner notes by Adam White.
  • Few record labels in history have had the impact of Berry Gordy's Motown. It's a sound, a spirit, and a hit-making machine. In the 1960s, if the Number One song on the Billboard charts wasn't by the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, it was likely by the Temptations, the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, or another Motown artist. Wonder, Gaye, Lionel Richie, and others continued the tradition through the '70s and into the '80s, Boyz II Men dominated the charts in the early '90s, and as the 21st century dawned, the Motown name was still a formidable force in R&B and soul.
  • With more than two dozen tracks, MOTOWN #1'S collects a remarkable cross-section of the biggest hits that the label unleashed over the course of nearly 50 years. These include the Temptations' harmony-laden "My Girl," the Supremes' dramatic "Stop! In the Name of Love," and the Four Tops' kinetic, sunny "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)." Also featured is the unbridled soul energy of Jr. Walker & the All-Stars' "Shotgun" and the Marvin Gaye's haunting milestone "I Heard It Through the Grapevine." As many times as these songs have been heard, they still sound unbelievably fresh and beautiful.
