Motown Greatest Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
A three-disc set released by Universal International, Motown Greatest Hits is a wonderful collection that combines the obvious Motown hits with material a little less at the center of the label's patented 1960's sound. Rick James' "Superfreak" and Billy Preston's "With You I'm Born Again" are just two of the titles mixed in here that give this anthology a more comprehensive feel than the usual Motown compilations. Relatively uncommon tracks like "I Hear a Symphony" by the Isley Brothers, and the movie theme song "Ben" by Michael Jackson are also included, adding to the historical sweep of this boxed set.
