The Roots of Motown! Music Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- November, 25, 2014

I have always considered "Motown"-the greatest music ever played because its limitless appeal attracted all ages,races,religions and all walks of life! This spectacular CD focuses on the genesis of Motown! Artists like the Voice masters,Spinners,David Ruffin, Jr.Walker, Harvey Fuqua and even Joe Tex will mesmerized you with their first records! Songs like Hope and Pray, She loves you so and the original " Someday we will be together" will captivate your ear as well as your heart! If you are a Motown fan like myself, this CD is mandatory to have in your collection! The Sound of Young America will never die!
