Motown Anniversary Collection (5LP Box Set)

LP (Item 986990) Motown/Silver Eagle, 1960s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-
5LP Box Set

A collection of 50 #1 hits on Motown by artists that include Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Thelma Houston, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Edwin Starr, The Marvelettes, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, The Jackson 5, Eddie Kendrics, Mary Wells, Junior Walker & The All Stars, Four Tops, The Temptations, Commodores, and Gladys Knight & The Pips.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s issue. Box has some edge wear and the fastener portion on back shows some use.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Pure Smokey
Motown, 1974. Sealed
Excellent mid 70s work from Smokey, recorded right before his landmark Quiet Storm album, and in a smooth sophisticated style that showed that he was definitely on the right track after splitting from the Miracles!

Cuba Gooding

Love Dancer
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
A tremendous solo outing from Cuba Gooding – a record that not only shows his strength as a lead singer away from The Main Ingredient – but one that also shows that he really knows how to groove as well! The album's produced by Michael Smith, and has a vibe that's a bit different than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gladys Knight & The Pips

If I Were Your Woman
Motown, 1971. Very Good+
A new level of sophistication for Gladys Knight – and a record that opened the door to the mellower style that would break big for her in the 70s! The title cut is almost worth the price of the record alone – a slow-stepping, blue-tinged number that perfectly blends Knight's lead ... LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1964. Very Good-
About as classic as you can get for the early Supremes – a set that has the group really hitting hard on all levels, thanks to production from the team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, plus a bit of help from Smokey Robinson – all of whom really help push the Supremes out of simple girl group ...

Soulful Strings

Paint It Black
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ...

Universe City
Midland, 1976. Very Good+
One of the few strong records on the Midland label – an imprint mostly known for its mainstream disco work in the 70s. Universe City are a vocal quintet arranged and produced for the set by John Davis – in a style that's still pretty disco, but which has a much stronger Philly ... LP, Vinyl record album
