Mogul Berry Gordy from Motown quickly recognized the value of the compilation album, and although we don’t have any statistics at hand, I suspect no publisher has released more compilations than Motown. Of course, the readers of a certain culture will have good memories of the collections of British Motown-Chartbusters. Soul and Jazz and Funk is an independent soul site compiled by Charles Waring and Bill Buckley, Britain’s two most experienced and respected soul writers. Big and small labels have always used the compilation as a kind of demonstration of what they have to offer. Not surprisingly, compilations are often called “selective collections”. This was the company’s fourth album, followed in May 1962 by “Motown Special”, ten songs from the Motown brand. In any case, Berry Gordie released the first Motown compilation from the U.S. in late 1961. There are also many lesser-known names, such as Sherry Taylor and Valadier, which unfortunately have been forgotten. The concept of the album is as old as contemporary popular music. He collected 10 pieces of “sound” from Tamla, hence the name “Special Tamla”. Contact us, we offer very competitive prices for displaying your ad on our website.
