    September Goldmine Has Some Great Motown Stuff

    The September issue of Goldmine (www.goldminemag.com) has several features commemorating Motown's 60th anniversary. I have the printed edition since I subscribe to the magazine but from a quick review of the website, it appears that these features are not yet available. I would assume they will be soon.

    Anyway, there is an overall story on Motown, plus lengthy interviews with Smokey, Duke Fakir, and Otis Williams. Another feature I enjoyed was a piece where they selected four B sides that in the opinion of the writers were as good as their A sides.

    Two of the ones they picked are ones where I would wholeheartedly agree. The Four Tops' "I Got a Feeling," (as you guys know I am always caterwauling on here about what a sensational song that is) and the Supremes' "Bill When Are You Coming Back", the flip side to "Up the Ladder to the Roof."

    Some very interesting reading which I hope you guys can see, either in print or online eventually.

    Thanks David. I too was unaware of this but I hope I have better luck at the newsstand with this than I did the Ebony last issue that featured Diana Ross which I still have not acquired and probably never will.

    in the pre internet days I periodically got Goldmine and enjoyed it very much! got a ton of my most wanted 60's country 45's from a seller in Nashville that I couldn't find here in NYC without paying $10-$15 ea. at collectors shops.

    If the 11-disc set mentioned be the Motown Complete Number Ones set, that set was old, as that saluted Motown's Fiftieth Anniversary. A proper Motown 60 commemorative set has not been done yet.
