I have only heard the stereo cd of Motown 2, and the slick production had me pining for the originals. Maybe in surround it's different.JonUrban said:I too give it an 8. I am glad they released this one in HiRez, as it could have gone the other way quite easily. So, again, THANKS UMG! Keep 'em coming and I'll buy 'em.
(Speaking of covers, I still cannot bring myself to get the Rod Steward DVD-A of his first "Standards" disc. To me, MD doing Motown is fine, RS singing standards, well, there is something not quite right with that, to me anyway. Of course, I must be wrong, as they are now on the THIRD release of this type of material (although not in HiRez surround))
Yeah, I also wondered why more Motown artists are not released in multichannel like Marvin Gaye. It seems to me that when the Marvin Gaye albums were recorded, other Motown artists like Stevie Wonder (wouldn't Songs in the Key of Life http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?pid=1050769&cart=236850889&style=music&Bab=E be TOO GROOVY :steering: in multichannel!!), Temptations, etc. had great albums as well.JonUrban said:I usually hate it when someone sings "someone elses" song, thinking that if I want to hear the song, I'll listen to the original.
