• Various Artists - A Family Affair - Motor City Roots

'A Family Affair' Follows on from the success of our previous issue, JASCD527 Berry Gordy - 'Motor City Roots'. In this volume we focus on the labels owned by Berry Gordy's sister, Gwen, and as you would expect this is once again a feast of early 60s soul!

Features the first recordings from the soon to be famous Motown stars, The Spinners, Junior Walker, Lamont Dozier, David Ruffin and Johnny Bristol.

Hear history in the making as the roots of Motown take shape with many recordings on CD for the first time.
