    Of Great Historical Value!

    This compilation is of the MOTOR CITY recordings/videos made by Ian Levine between around 1988 and 1993... NOT MOTOWN recordings. Any enlightened fan would realize that by some of the artists featured. Even though these are not original Motown recordings and yes, many sound very much alike due to being cheaply recorded (hence the drum machines and lack of real instrumentation) and the fact that many of the songs themselves are less than memorable, this is a wonderful HISTORICAL DOCUMENT of the Motor City experience. Hundreds of artists, at the time without record company contracts, were brought together and given a second chance at recording. Many made no money from these recordings, yet something valuable came from this period - these artists are now preserved visually and audibly. I, for one, totally applaud this package. It is fantastic to have these rare videos and to observe many of these artists in a last ditch attempt at rekindling (or finally establishing) their careers. I applaud Ian Levine for making the effort to give them that shot, though tragically, he did too much too quickly with poor production and little to no promotion... Still, this DVD set is a wonderful historical document of a gallant effort...
