AllMusic Review by

A glance at the artists listed on the cover of this CD might have you believe you're buying a collection of unreleased tracks from Motown's vaults. But that's not quite the case here; these are Ian Levine productions featuring former Motown artists, recorded in the late '80s and originally released on Motorcity. The release includes tracks by non-Motown artists as well, including The Watts 103rd Street Strings, Archie Bell & the Drells, Tammi Lavette, Gary the Master Blaster, Eddie Holman, Rocq-E-Harrell, and Shaydes of Harmony. But the rest are by ex-Motowners: Brenda Holloway, the Lovetones, the Andantes, David Ruffin and the Monitors.
