About this title

From Library Journal:

Taraborrelli writes about Motown Records from its inception in the late 1950s to its present-day empire. After an introduction, he divides the book into five sections: each begins with a chronology of events at Motown and then includes sketches of such performers as Smokey Robinson, the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and the Jackson 5. Although gathering together many interesting photos, the author takes the uncritical perspective of a fan, characterizing the Motown sound as "the most exciting and absorbing popular music of the postwar epoch." Compared to other recent books on the subject, this book adds little to the understanding of the Motown phenomenon. Still, it will probably appeal to diehard fans.
