VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 5 – 1965 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1965. Used 6CD ... $99.99
More great soul music than we ever hoped to find in a single place – and a massive 6CD collection that looks at the key year of 1965 at Motown Records! The package is every bit as wonderful and thorough as the others in this series – with a whopping 166 songs collected in a lavish, full-color book that features nearly 150 pages of notes, photos, and wonderful images from the 60s! And as with other sets, the ultra-cool package even features a replica 45 stuck inside the front cover – a rare vinyl treasure that's almost as great as the CDs. But over and above the packaging, the music's the real thing to rave about here – as 1965 has Motown growing into even new levels of maturity and quality – as demonstrated by the work here by artists who include Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Chris Clark, Frank Wilson, The Elgins, The Miracles, Earl Van Dyke, The Marvelettes, Barbara McNair, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin, The Dalton Boys, The Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Little Lisa, Richard Anthony, The Lewis Sisters, Danny Day, The Contours, The Vows, The Hit Pack, Kim Weston, The Freeman Brothers, JR Walker, and many others! All singles offered up with both a and b-sides! (Soul, Funky Compilations) CD
(Limited edition. Still sealed!)

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 8 – 1968 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1968. Used 6 CDs ... $69.99
Mighty Motown hits the year of 1968 – a time of plenty changes, both social and musical! This massive collection of Motown singles spans 6CDs in all – and together, the tunes are a wonderful illustration of the growing depth of the label at the end of the 60s – an expansive approach to soul music that still burned brightly on previous fronts, but which also moved into hipper territory too! In addition to continued greatness from previous Motown stars, the set also features some key nods towards more righteous aspects of soul at the time – bits of funk, more ambitious productions, and some bolder, more political lyrics on a number of the tunes. This whole transition is laid out beautifully over the course of 144 songs – both a and b-sides of all singles issued by Motown in 1968 – and also told in the pages of the 130 page booklet, filled with notes, writings, photos, and full color images throughout! Music is by Shorty Long, Edwin Starr, Four Tops, Fantastic Four, Rita Wright, R Dean Taylor, Jimmy Ruffin, Bobby Taylor, Chris Clark, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Jr Walker, Smokey Robinson, Debbie Dean, The Ones, The Monitors, Paul Peterson, and lots lots more! Also comes with a bonus Marvin Gaye 7" single packaged inside the hardcover booklet! (Soul, Funky Compilations) CD

VariousWonder Of Stevie 3 – Presented By DJ Spinna ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s/2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 16.98
An incredible collection of Stevie Wonder cover versions – different versions of familiar tunes, but ones that really manage to sparkle with all the righteous soul of the Stevie himself! It's been over a decade since DJ Spinna brought us the last version of his Wonder Of Stevie series – and during that time, he's managed to come up with a huge amount of great tracks that make the whole thing go way way deeper than before – not just cuts that copy the Wonder mode, but which seem to draw strong inspiration from its genius, and really soar to the skies! Much of the music here resonates with a charm that's located around the years of albums like Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, with all the jazzy currents that might imply – and some cuts are 70s vintage, others are more contemporary. Titles include "Bird Of Beauty" by US Atlantic First Navy Show Band, "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston, "Love's In Need Of Love Today" by John Minnis Big Bone Band, "As" by Tony Sherman, "Buttercup" by Jackson 5, "Have A Talk With God" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" by Quincy Jones, "Golden Lady" by Reel People with Tony Momrelle, "If You Don't Love Me" by GC Cameron, "If She Breaks Your Heart Again" by Foreign Exchange, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Black Sugar, "Go Home" by Jrod Indigo, and "Make My Water Boil" by David Ruffin. 2CDs – one of the cuts unmixed, one with the tracks in a continuous mix by Spinna!
