Coinciding with Motown's 50th anniversary, this three-disc set was compiled after fans voted on their five favorite songs from the venerable label. The results aren't exactly surprising, as iconic names (Smokey, the Temptations, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye) and mega-hits ("ABC," "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," "Stop in the Name of Love") abound. Aficionados might quibble at a lack of diversity, but regardless of how many times and in how many different ways this stuff gets repackaged, the music never ceases to shine through.
