Motown Records was a veritable hit-producing machine in the 1960s and anthologies of the label's successes are everywhere and easily found. What makes the compilation series called Motown Chartbusters
a little different, though, is that each volume includes a handful of obscurities that didn't exactly end up big hits -- through no fault of their own. Still, it's the hits the really lift things and set off the feel-good nostalgia bells. This box combines the fourth, fifth, and sixth volumes of the Motown Chartbusters
series, and includes the classics "Cloud Nine" by the Temptations
, Stevie Wonder
's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours," Marvin Gaye
's "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby," and Smokey Robinson
's "The Tears of a Clown," to name just a few.
