The current issue of UK publication Mojo has a very good free Motown cd {UK copies only?)and some good Motown articles within the magazine.
Well worth picking up.

Are the tracks the usual suspects, or something unexpected?

Exactly what I was thinking Soulwally!!

However .. a quick google reveals that it is already being sold on E-Bay ..

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Motown-C D-Supremes-Contours-Marvin-Gay e-Four-Tops-_W0QQitemZ12035569 0689QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20081 229?IMSfp=TL081229111003r22146

And according to the seller the artists and tracks are:-

Contours � Do You Love Me
Martha & Vandellas � Come and Get these Memories
Supremes � Run Run Run
Eddie Holland � Leaving Here
Jr. Walker & the All-Stars � Tune Up
Marvin Gaye � At Last
Marvelettes � Locking Up My Heart
Jackson 5 � I Found That Girl
Four Tops � Still Water
Miracles � Baby Don�t Go
Temptations � Fading Away
Gladys Knight & Pips � Didn�t You Know
Bobby Taylor & Vancouvers � Does Your Mama Know About Me
Marv Johnson � Come to Me
Mable John � You Made a Fool Out of Me

So it seems its not the usual suspects at all!!

Thanks for the tip Francis. I used to buy Mojo quite regularly, but in recent years it has only appealed to me once or twice a year. This is obviously one of those times (actually last month too!), especially following Roger's detective work!

Absolutely excellent compilation. What's Baby Don't Go from?
I used to subscribe to Mojo, but enjoyed it less and less - the same old artists being retread, the same old albums lauded (some deserved the praise; others totally overrated).
And the end-of-year favourites poll revealed the profile of the average Mojo reader - and it certainly wasn't anybody into soul/R&B (the proper kind).

I usually get MOJO once or twice a year also. The CD's that come with it are usually pretty good,as well as the articles. I have to check this one out.
