gift suggestion for music fanatics

1. Open iTunes.
2. Go to the Music Store.
3. Type "complete motown singles" into the search box.
4. Drool at the results, then buy.

Yes all eleven volumes of "The Complete Motown Singles" (year by year) are availible for $59.99 each. Considering that you cannot find the cds on Amazon for that cheap, it's worth the only-128k bitrate quality. After all, they sound better than they did on the (AM) radio originally. And Universal FINALLY did a great job on remastering the Motown vaults.

What some individual gems? How about Diana's swan song to the Supremes, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", in it's full-length 6 minute & 18 second glory (volume 10)...or the cleanest "I Second That Emotion" by Smokey and The Miracles that you've ever heard (volume 7)...well, you can see for yourselves. And of course, you can pick-and-choose the tracks you want for 99 cents each.

Of course, I only know about the US store. iTunes Overseas patrons, ymmv.

Feel free to donate any of the volumes to the OlioRadio library at any time (starting with volume 10). lol
Love and Peace, Clarence
