The album isn't a particularly deep dive into the Motown catalog; everything on board is a recognizable hit, there are no rarities or unreleased tracks, and these are the versions of the songs you've been hearing for decades. There are no surprises to be found, and given the huge number of compilations that have been drawn from the Motown archives over the years, there's ultimately nothing that truly sets this one apart.
Motown was a label that treated the making of hit singles as both a science and an art form, and the songs collected on Hitsville: The Making of Motown show their skills were on point in every respect. If you already have a large collection of classic Motown sides, this album probably offers you nothing you need, but as a handy sampler of some of the greatest, most enduring pop and soul of the era, this does the job and every tune is a winner.
The single-disc edition is less expensive, the expanded version has more music, the packing is practically the same, and both are loaded with great, familiar hits. Either way, you get a good sampler that's great listening. Four Tops. Marvin Gaye. The Temptations. Rude Boys. Show details. Sent from and sold by Amazon. Customers who bought this item also bought.

The Four Tops. My Guy. Mary Wells.I think from all the time that I spent looking and listening to various Motown box sets that one would be pressed to better this one. There are a few singers I have not heard before but they had the big hitters - The supremes, stevie wonder, marvin gaye, billy paul, smokey robinson, jackson 5, the temptations, etc/5(17).
