AllMusic Review by

Of the label's seemingly endless budget-priced hits collections, the Motown Legends series ranks among the best, giving consumers exactly what they want: the smash hits that defined "the Sound of Young America" during the company's heyday. Each of this fourth volume's 11 tracks is a true classic, and although it's difficult and more than a little ridiculous to even play favorites with music this good, absolute highlights include Marvin Gaye's "Hitchhike," the Four Tops' "Bernadette," Martha & the Vandellas' "Jimmy Mack," and Diana Ross & the Supremes' "I Hear a Symphony."
