Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 57/500!


2009 marks the 50th Anniversary of Berry Gordy's legendary Motown Records. Motown made its mark not just on the music industry, but society at large, with a sound that became one of the most significant global musical accomplishments and stunning success stories of the 20th century. Nine landmark albums on premium audiophile heavyweight 180g vinyl are now available for the first time in decades from the Universal Music Group including:

The Jackson 5/ABC
Diana Ross/Diana Ross
The Temptations/Cloud Nine
The Four Tops/Reach Out
Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell/United
The Supremes/I Hear A Symphony
Stevie Wonder/Songs In The Key Of Life
Rick James/Street Songs
Smokey Robinson/A Quiet Storm

Originally released in 1976, Songs In The Key Of Life was the final album in a 5-album stretch widely acclaimed as his 'classic period'. In 2003, the album was ranked number 56 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album features "Isn't She Lovely" and "I Wish".

"Making this record, Wonder would often stay in the studio forty-eight hours straight, not eating or sleeping, while everyone around him struggled to keep up. "If my flow is goin', I keep on until I peak," he said. The flow went so well, Wonder released twenty-one songs, packaged as a double album and a bonus EP. The highlights are the joyful "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke," but Wonder also displays his effortless mastery of funk, jazz, balladry, Afrobeat and even a string-quartet minuet." - www.rollingstone.com

"The re-mastering to audiophile vinyl enhances the sonic quality of the music. The overdubbed synthesizers and blended vocals are captured with fluidity and deep tones. Minor details like intricate percussion and individual keyboard pieces are not lost in the mix. The packaging is high quality and simple in design. An informative twenty-four page booklet will delight trivia seekers. For anyone considering a foray into audiophile vinyl (or for those wishing to add to their collection) Songs In The Key Of Life is as good as it gets!
