Mick O’Dowd… This week in 1970 Motown released the first of the Motown Chartbusters. Above no 3 is a pretty iconic cover from the past.
Alan Esdaile… All rest tracks behind a painted smile The Isley Brothers.
Janine Anne Scott… Still got this one.
Jon McCallion… Good album but five was better.
Alan Pepper… One of the first LPs bought from The RECORD shop !
Behind a painted smile … Can’t think of another MOTOWN track that has an intro and a sudden ending – anyone ? Loved the Stevie Wonder songs on this !

Will Cornell… These are the only two vinyl Motown comps in my collection. This is the one of the earliest ones from about ’63 or so and a doozy from about ’70–a 5 LP box set that was set up like a radio documentary–like “The Beatles Story” issued over here, but with full length tunes and the dj seguing into Diana, or Stevie or Smokey or Levi or whoever, telling us something about the tune. Was only $5.99 I recall, but alas, mine was missing the souvenir booklet that was supposted to come inside.
Alan Esdaile… Don’t remember the first one being released here Will but pretty sure I remember The Motown Story in the UK. Anyone else confirm?
Mick O’Dowd… Yes I had a vinyl copy of the Motown Story. This is where jocks got the Motown hits jingles compilation from. Great album and i’ve got it on CD now. Yes it did Will. Nice full sized slinky super-doper turbo-charged booklet.
Susan Cordeux… I still have Motown Chartbusters vol 3, love Motown.
Leigh Weiland-Boys… …….and me, yet again – vinyl & CD!
Paul Morfey… Yes still got the vinyl Ive had for 40 plus years also got the C.D.!!
