The Definitive Collection delivers 18 essential tracks by the Marvelettes, spanning seven years on Motown Records. Though the songs aren't in chronological order, all of the important hits from that era are represented, from their first number one, "Please Mr. Postman" in 1961, through their last chart entry, "My Baby Must Be a Magician" in 1968. Also peppered throughout are strong lesser-heard tracks like "Someday, Someway," "Strange I Know," and "Too Strong to be Strung Along." While not as generous as the 25-track Ultimate Collection on Motown, it's convenient to have all the original hits on one disc.

In your panoramas...
The Prince of the 80s

Within the family tree of funk, Prince Rogers Nelson, who passed away in April 2016, was a branch all of his own. In the course of a career spanning almost forty years, he managed to blend together the heritage of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with other influences, from rock'n'roll to electronica to jazz. He produced an exuberant, attention-grabbing groove, and his star shone brightest between 1978 and 1988…

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.

Philadelphia Soul, Funk with a Bow Tie

Neither Motown nor Stax Records! Philadelphia Soul offered a third voice of its own. Created by the Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff duo, this genre - the precursor of disco - made America dance in the early 70s by soaking it in silk and champagne.
