Artist: Various
Description:
This 4-CD box set contains a 68-page booklet featuring artist biographies, track-by-track annotations, a historical Motown timeline, musician credits, rare photos and memorabilia from the Motown archives. Also included are essays by Harry Weinger, Janie Bradford, Larry Gabriel, Paul Grein, Elvis Mitchell, David Ritz, Leo Sacks, Allan "Dr. Licks" Slutsky and Adam White. Engineers include: Mike McClain, Lawrence Horn, Robert Bateman. Compilation producers: Cary E. Mansfield and Patti Drosins. This is part of the Motown Master Series. Audio Remasterers: Dan Hersch; Bill Inglot. Instead of following Stax/Volt's pattern and delivering an exhaustive box set containing all of their singles, Motown decided to limit their singles box, Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971, to four discs that concentrated on the hits. There are a handful of wonderful lesser-known songs here, such as the Contours' "First I Look at the Purse," but the main strength of the 103-track box is that it features all of the biggest songs from Motown's golden era in one place. Collectors could have used a more comprehensive set, and the box itself could have been packaged with a little more care (there are no artists listed on the back of the individual discs, only songs), but Hitsville USA stands as a definitive overview and introduction to one of the most groundbreaking labels in pop music history. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
