Group member solo departures - Label Assignments

Was there any kind of logic used by Motown when group members departed and that member stayed or later resigned with the company?

Supremes/DRATS/Diana Ross - Supremes/DRATS were on Motown and Diana Ross was on Motown

Commodores/Lionel Richie - Commodores were on Motown and Lionel Richie was on Motown

Miracles/SRATM - Miracles/SRATM were on Tamla and Smokey Robinson was on Tamla

Temptations - Tempations were on Gordy and David Ruffin was on Motown, Dennis Edwards was on Gordy, Eddie Kendrics was on Tamla.

Just curious.

The Motown Story LPs vs. CDs

Just discovered 'The Motown Story' on CD, and I think it's great. A fabulous insight into the stories behind the music and I love the style of the commentary. Who else enjoys these? I noticed there are also the LPs, two different 5 LP sets, which I have ordered as I am a bit of a completist and noticed there were a few tracks not on the two different CD sets. Will I have everything with the two 5 LP set or is there any other recordings people would recommend?
