AllMusic Review by

The budget-priced 16 Early 60's #1 Hits assembles chart-topping hits from Motown's formative years, including familiar favorites like Martha & the Vandellas' "(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave," Little Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips, Pt. 2," the Temptations' "My Girl," the Supremes' "Where Did Our Love Go" and Jr. Walker and the All-Stars' "Shotgun." Despite decades of incessant airplay, each song is a classic, and in tandem with its sequel 16 Late 60's #1 Hits, the disc offers an easy and inexpensive way to collect some of the biggest and most enduring hits of the era (although as many of Motown's finest hours never topped the charts, you can't stop here).
