    Don't know why they seems scarce on Ebay, as the series was quite popular in the late 1980s. Most of my early Motown CDs were 2-fers. Some of the combinations made sense, others not at all (most...

    It definitely would have been interesting if Ross would have done a whole Lionel Richie album. Now personally, I'm not a big fan of Richie (quite the contrary, I find most of his solo work quite...
