Playlist Plus: Motown 50th Anniversary

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
One can't really go wrong with a three-disc, 40-track set of vintage 1960s Motown singles, and this delightful collection unwinds like an old friend talking, with classic sides like Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips, Pt. 2," Junior Walker's "Shotgun" and "Roadrunner," the Temptations' "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "I Wish It Would Rain," Martha Reeves' "Jimmy Mack," and Marvin Gaye's great, ominous version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," among others, flowing by one after the other. How could one mess up a set like this? You can't. Perfect for that long, late-night car trip.
