2020 - Any news of a Motown release?

As we enter 2020, have we finally emptied the well of 60s recordings?
Any news of 'special' projects on the 60s era?
I guess we will get a 1970 unreleased set, but are there no projects from Ace/ Kent etc?

The Motown legend behind "Dancing in the Street," "Stubborn Kind of Fellow," "It Takes Two," "Devil with a Blue Dress On," and "Beechwood 4-5789" opens up about his life and career, including why he almost stormed out of his first meeting with Berry Gordy; how he assembled Motown’s legendary Funk Brothers; the trick he used to convince Marvin Gaye to ditch jazz and become an R&B singer; and why “Dancing in the Street” was a message song -- but not the message many people think!

BOSE Home Audio Products future

I wanted to post this where interesting parties could read it. I posted it in the Motown Forum as that is where the vast majority of members look at and think it warrants attention. Especially those who have BOSE CD players as I do.

After a record-breaking number of store closings across the country in 2019, more national companies are preparing to shut down locations as 2020 begins.

A number of companies reported low earnings in the third quarter, prior to an underwhelming holiday season for brick-and-mortar sales.

Here is a look at a few companies that will be or could be leaving Delaware soon.

Bose, a leader in headphones, speakers and home audio products, is closing all of its 119 stores in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia, including a location in the Christiana Mall. Bose has had a presence in the mall for more than 20 years.

In a statement, the company said a "dramatic shift" to online shopping led to the decision. Bose offered a unique experience when it opened its first U.S. stores in 1993, offering demonstrations of various music and home theater systems.

The company's focus has since shifted to noise-canceling headphones, sport earbuds and portable speakers, which are being sold increasingly online, according to the statement. Bose devices are also on display in larger stores such as Best Buy and Target.
