Budget CD: The Songs of Berry Gordy

Budget CD: The Songs of Berry Gordy

Just spotted The Songs of Berry Gordy on pre-order, a budget two-CD collection landing this week.

It is pretty much self-explanatory. Although perhaps best-known as the ‘mogul’ behind the label, Berry Gordy also write a good number of songs himself. Some well known, other less so.

When I say well known, I mean it too, with the likes of Do You Love Me by The Contours, Money (That’s What I Want) by Barrett Strong, Shop Around by The Miracles and Reet Petite by Jackie Wilson here for example.

But the known tracks are overshadowed by lesser-known songs, which is perhaps the appeal of this set if you aren’t a serious Motown collector. That and the price of this 40-track CD set of course.

You can pick this up for £5.42, with the release date this coming Friday.
