3.0 out of 5 stars More of a compilation of Wikipedia articles Sept. 2 2013

Recollections is a good beginning primer for someone (high school student) wanting to gain a basic historical knowledge of Motown. I was expecting to read more insights and perspective views from the subjects themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Moment in American History June 8 2012
By Mike Ball - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Motown phenomenon is probably not often thought of as an American historical milestone, but it arguably provided a soundtrack for the cultural revolution. This book is a ramble through those sometimes turbulent years, seen through the eyes of the people who lived them. If, like me, you ever had a crush on Diana Ross, or wished you could be a Pip, this book is a must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Book! June 14 2012
By MJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What a fun book this was to read! For someone growing up dancing to the great Motown hits, this was a real trip down "Memory Lane". The behind-the-scenes stories, the photos, the inside scoops--everything about this book is wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to everyone--especially those who grew up in this great era of GREAT music. It sits on my coffee table, inviting anyone who comes over to "Open and Enjoy"!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good quick read Nov. 26 2012
By V. P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I say that because before I knew it, I was at the end of the book. It was informative, I really just wish it were longer. I love the music from Motown. The talent that came out of Detroit was just amazing and will never be duplicated. It's sad that the music was called "Race Music." What???? Anyway I enjoyed the fact that the author included some DJ's in the book, that put a great spin on the whole thing, after all they were responsible for getting the Motown sound to the people.
