25 Best of the Best Album : 19. The Motown Box--Various Artists

It's not just any label that can release a boxed set of their best acts and establish both group identity and label identity.

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Four Tops all carved out their sound within the confines of a Detroit recording studio and the overhearing ears of Berry Gordy Jr.

The label was a hit-making machine like Disney is today but loving and benevolent where now there is only the face of evil.
