Product Description:

Released in 2008, this expansive Motown box set, true to its title, presents every chart-topping single issued by the legendary R&B/soul label over the course of 10 discs. These time-honored tunes, many from the company's 1960s/early-'70s heyday, are literally housed in a mini-replica of Motown's original Detroit base of operations, affectionately known as "Hitsville, U.S.A." While the collection's conceit definitely showcases Motown's most renowned artists, notably the Miracles, the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, the Jackson 5, and, in later decades, Lionel Richie and Boyz II Men, it also spotlights, however briefly, lesser-known artists such as Mary Wells (the breezy "My Guy"), Rare Earth (the buoyant "Get Ready"), and '80s one-hit wonder Rockwell (the inescapable Michael Jackson-featuring "Somebody's Watching Me"), who, incidentally, is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy. The perfect gift for diehard Motown fans, THE COMPLETE NO. 1'S is a remarkable chronicle of the revered, groundbreaking label.
