Coupla weeks ago I had one of my "DJ's blocks" (= I was short of new stuff to play and short of ideas/time). Looking at my vaults I found abt 10 compilations of "Motown sings..." courtesy probably of my friend Dr Soul, so I played all of them to select this hour dedicated to the mighty Detroit label paying tribute to other contemporary labels (like Atlantic, Stax etc). No surprise the result is great, there are some overlooked gems you might have forgotten. Enjoy the cap (Original MRUK broadcast : Captain Stax Show n.60 / May 2011 / www.modradiouk.net)
