The best thing is all the hits & music that you know all in one place.... Although you probably have all the tracks already on other compilations! Imagine all the tunes you've bopped to over the years - and here a lot of them are, all in one collection.

?Motown, one of the most legendary record labels of all time, celebrates its golden anniversary with a definitive compilation of its greatest tracks. Boasting a fine selection of classic songs that will ignite nostalgia and brighten up any day, Motown 50 is the ultimate 'fanthology' of the label's best-loved hits, chosen by the people for the people. As an irresistible force of social and cultural change, Berry Gordy's Motown Records made its mark not just on the music industry but society at large. An important role in the racial integration of popular music, Motown was the first record label to primarily feature African-American songwriters and artists. Fronted by performers such as Stevie Wonder and The Supremes, the label and its soul-based subsidiaries were the most successful proponents of what came to be known as The Motown Sound. That influential sound still resonates today and now as the iconic movement celebrates its fiftieth year the sense of being a community still shines through. Instead of delivering songs that experts deemed to be the fifty best Motown tracks, the company decided that the best way to keep their communal spirit alive would be to set up a online voting poll in which the general public chose their favourite tracks. Motown 50 runs through the results front to back. Topping the poll and kicking the first disc off in exquisite style is Marvin Gaye's acclaimed version of 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine'. Layering the song with vocals that flit between anguish and paranoia, Gaye delivers a mind-absorbing performance that captures the lyrics of the song and demands its contagious chorus to be sung along. Whilst the first disc hits us with track after track of Motown's most recognized sounds including Martha & The Vandellas' 'Jimmy Mack' and The Velvelettes' 'Needle In A Haystack', the second disc delivers a far more eclectic mix of soul tunes. Heading up the second batch are Marvin Gaye and Edwin Starr's respective protest anthems 'What's Going On' and 'War'. Heavier in content the tracks capture the fighting spirit of the label and add an excitably dense contradiction to the delicate love songs such as Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' 'The Tracks Of My Tears'. By the time that the final disc begins, the countdown has nearly reached its completion. With Stevie Wonder and Rick James' beat-tastic 'Master Blaster' and 'Super Freak' offering a taste of the funky side of the label, the final six songs are revealed. Once the rundown is complete, Motown spoil us with a sublime selection of hard to find cover versions. As the label's most outstanding artists sing the songs of their peers, including Four Tops giving a mesmerising adaptations of 'Everybody's Talking', the release draws to a close. Capturing the sound of a music institution in one definitive collection, Motown 50 is a soulful party compilation that is guaranteed to live on for at least another fifty years to come.
