Win an Autographed Copy of Motown: The Complete No 1's Boxset
Motown Records, founded by Berry Gordy in 1959, remains a glorious beacon in American history for help shape the advent of rhythm & blues and soul music into American pop culture. The historical relevance in its role in integrating pop music, being the first record label owned by an African-American and to primarily feature African-American artists who achieved crossover success, speaks volumes of the evolution of R&B music. When Smokey Robinson & the Miracles debuted with their number one R&B hit, "Shop Around," the world couldn't get enough of that Motown magic. And then came the careers of Diana Ross & the Supremes, the Temptations, Barrett Strong, Norman Whitfield, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, Tammi Terrell, the Four Tops, Mary Wells, Jr. Walker & the All-Stars, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Spinners, the Jackson 5, Rick James, the Commodores, Lionel Richie, Debarge and Boyz II Men.
