Motown, Soul & Oldies

“Motown” is both a style of music and a label; in fact, no other label (with the possible exception of its grittier ’60s brother, Stax) is more identified with the sound it produced. Although Motown started as a straight R&B label and later moved into genres from Psychedelic Soul to New Jack Swing, “The Motown Sound” as it’s usually understood by fans and historians.Most Motown songs were written on piano and based on a piano riff, although there were occasional ballads that broke the mold (the Temptations’ “My Girl”).
