Rare Motown - No More Tearstained Make Up

Recommended Posts

Over a decade ago, Motown let everyone hear some of the hundreds of unissued tracks that they had stored in their vaults. Some were instant classics, others took a while to grow - but I believe the problem was that they released too much material in such a short space of time, consequently many great tracks went more or less unnoticed. I've done three volumes of these tracks and I can promise you, these are amongst the best mixcasts I've ever done. I added a sprinkling of well known tracks but in the main, most tracks here and on the next two volumes were not released at the time. Some, such as the title track, are so good they are hard to describe! I love these compilations, I hope you will too. (I'll add the other volumes during the next week)

A fabulous mix of wonderful Motown. I've got all these , but to have a compilation like this is such a bonus.

Many of these are spread over so many CDs but the collection idea is a winner..look forward to more

Many thanks
