A Cellarful of Motown Vol.3
2007 two CD set, the third volume in the fantastic collection series curated by Paul Nixon. He retrieves the best lost Motown tracks from the vaults of Hitsville, U.S.A., dusts them off, digitizes and cleans them up for release. Some have appeared on bootlegs and many are revered by Northern Soul collectors, but most will be new to most people. Motown's quality control back in the day was par excellence and even songs that were previously dismissed by the label brass or withheld from release can be considered long lost gems all these years later. 45 tracks of Motown Gems.

The Rise and Fall of the Motown Sound
The acclaimed best selling story of Tamla Motown records - the most successful independent record label in the world. Now acknowledged by critics in both the US and Europe as the definitive account of the rise and fall of the Motown Sound. It covers the careers of all the great Motown artists - The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Four Tops, The Jackson Five and many more. It tells the story behind all their hits and how the company was run on factory like principles by Berry Gordy who as a result became the richest black American in history. It paints a portrait of gullible artists signing away their rights and, eventually, falling out with Gordy over monetary matters and that many of the back room boys at Motown - the writers and the musicians who played on the records - got a pittance for their efforts.
