About

Motown Records, aka “Hitsville, USA”, was headquartered in Detroit from 1960 until it moved to LA in 1972. Motown put out records from some of the greatest black artists of the 60s and 70s, from Marvin Gaye to The Supremes (and the Spinners) to the Jackson Five, and rap producers (we’re looking at you, Kanye and Diddy) have been heavily sampling from these classics ever since
