Album: Various artists, A Complete Introduction... (Motown)

An oblique look at theMotown story, althoughwhether it does the jobimplied by the "completeintro" title is moot. Whatyou get is four discs, eachthemed: "Milestones andinfluences", "Britishchartbusters", "Live inLondon and Paris","Killer Bs" which, takentogether, give a ratherEuro-centric interpretationof the narrative. Fairenough. But most of uswould content ourselveswith the first two as an"introduction" and thesecond two as a separate"rarities" set. Still,virtually all of the musicis sensational.
