Here is yet another reissue of the legendary (or infamous, depending on your point of view) Motown Story. The reason for its controversy exists simply in the fact that all these great hit songs have narration before them and after them by artists such as Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, and others. If you want the story with the songs, then this is for you; all the major cuts are here.
