Motown Records, also known as Tamla-Motown outside of the United States, is a record label originally based out of Detroit, Michigan ("Motor City"), where it achieved widespread international success. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as the first record label owned by an African American and primarily featuring African American artists to regularly achieve crossover success and have a widespread, lasting effect on the music industry.
Incorporated on 12 January 1959 by Berry Gordy, Jr. as Tamla Records, Motown has, over the course of its history, owned or distributed releases from more than 45 subsidiaries in varying genres, although it is most famous for its releases in the musical genres of R&B, hip hop, pop, and soul. Motown left Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972, and remained an independent company until 1988, when Gordy sold the company to MCA. …
7. Apr. 2006, 17:36 von AudaciousnessInspired by Trixx's excellent list, I thought I'd make one of my own. So I started playing all my NS tracks from A onward (well 1 actually). I thought I could probably manage 50-75 quite easily. Several days worth and God knows how many tracks later, I had a count of the list I'd made. 80 odd and I'd reached the end of I. I tried to take some out but couldn't remove enough to keep the overall list manageable so I went through J and K to make just under 100 and here it is.
There is just too damn much too damn good music.
Hopefully, or not if nobody's interested, I'll get around to the rest of the alphabet in the next few weeks.
