Next Motown Box Previous Motown Box Back to Motown labels


RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 4TH, 2006

CD Edition limited to 8000 non-numbered limited edition copies.

Hip-O Select presents The Complete Motown Singles, Volume 5: 1965, the newest installment in its critically acclaimed continuing series of every Motown single of the Detroit era. With 166 songs on six compact discs, the box set chronicles the arrival of ďThe Motown SoundĒ into the mainstream.



TCMS Vol. 5 features no. 1 hits from The Supremesí ďBack In My Arms AgainĒ (their fifth chart-topper in a row) to the Four Topsí ďI Canít Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch), Ē from Jr. Walker & The All Starsí breakthrough no. 1 hit ďShotgunĒ to Marvin Gayeís ďIíll Be Doggone,Ē a revived Stevie Wonderís ďUptight (Everythingís Alright)Ē to nearly no. 1ís from The Miraclesí ďGoing To A Go-Go,Ē ďOoo Baby BabyĒ and many more.



Thereís also the emergence of young Tammi Terrell, the uptown soul of Brenda Holloway and Kim Weston, the pop crossover experiments with Tony Martin and Barbara McNair, plus rare singles from Earl Van Dyke & The Soul Brothers, the Freeman Brothers, the Lewis Sisters, the Headliners, Chris Clark, the Downbeats and the holy grail of Motown collecting, Frank Wilsonís ďDo I Love You (Indeed I Do).Ē As with previous volumes, also included for several tracks are alternate promotional mixes, different from the commercially available vinyl singles.



This was the year that Berry Gordy realized one of his dreams for Motown: to break down racial barriers. The Supremes, with their many no. 1 Pop hits, were the vehicle; they headlined at New Yorkís prestigious Copacabana; appeared on the cover of Time magazine; were regulars on popular national television shows all year. The social atmosphere is reflected in both introductory essays, found in the box setís 148-page booklet.



 


Al Abrams, who was Motown Recordsí first employee and was then the companyís publicity director, spins an honest tale of his PR struggles as well as the fun in the midst of changing times. Author Herb Boyd, winner of the American Book Award, presents a socio-political view, weaving his experiences with Malcolm X, the Voting Rights Act and personal reflection with reporting on Motownís emerging business.


This is Volume 5 of a 12-part box series.
