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 which defined "The Sound of Young America" during the company's heyday. Each of this third 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 & Tammi Terrell's "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing," Junior Walker & the All-Stars' "Shotgun," Stevie Wonder's "Uptight (Everything's Alright)," and Diana Ross & the Supremes' "Someday We'll Be Together."
