The First and ONLY Motown DVD Collection! Motown records changed the face of American popular music. This special DVD collection presents 18 classic television performances featuring some of Motown's biggest hits and greatest artists from 1965 through 1972 - including the company's first Pop #1 hit The Marvelettes' "Please Mr. Postman," Martha & The Vandellas' classic performance of "Nowhere To Run" on the FordĀ® Mustang assembly line, and a luminous live version of "The Tears Of A Clown" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. These classics, plus the virtuoso within teenaged Stevie Wonder, the brilliance of Marvin Gaye, the enchanting Supremes and smooth choreography of the Temptations, all highlighted on this DVD, magnify the extraordinary legacy of Motown.

Rating 5.0 THE GREATEST MOTOWN DVD EVER! Movie Lover: from BRONX, NY US -- August, 21, 2014

GROWING UP IN THE MOTOWN ERA,I REALIZED THAT THE MOTOWN SOUND DOMINATED THE RADIO AIRWAYS FOR AT LEAST 3 DECADES! THIS DVD CAPTURED THESE MOTOWN ARTISTS AT THEIR VERY BEST INCLUDING RARE PERFORMANCES FROM KIM WESTON,THE CONTOURS AND JIMMY RUFFIN! WHAT MADE MOTOWN SO GREAT THAT IT REACHED ALL AUDIENCES NO MATTER WHAT NATIONALITY YOU WERE AND THERE WAS ALWAYS A SONG YOU COULD RELATE TO! THE MOTOWN SOUND IS NO DOUBT CELEBRATED ALL OVER THE WORLD!
