So Much Tambourine

Basically any Motown's fan CD listening should start here. It is by no means a complete collection, but it does have a lot of highlights over four CDs. To be honest, I tried listening straight through and found that to be an arduous task... but Motown was a singles label, and listening to the individual gems is good enough for me. Toward the end of the set we get some of the "L.A." Motown sinking in, but the rest makes up for that.
