AllMusic Review by

Motown Records was a veritable hit-producing machine in the 1960s and anthologies of the label’s successes are everywhere and easily found. What makes the compilation series called Motown Chartbusters a little different, though, is that each volume includes a handful of obscurities that didn’t exactly end up big hits -- through no fault of their own. Still, it’s the hits the really lift things and set off the feel-good nostalgia bells. This box combines the fourth, fifth, and sixth volumes of the Motown Chartbusters series, and includes the classics “Cloud Nine” by the Temptations, Stevie Wonder's “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” Marvin Gaye's “Too Busy Thinking About My Baby,” and Smokey Robinson's “The Tears of a Clown,” to name just a few.
