Marvin Gaye WHAT A RECORD...MOTOWN CELEBRATES 50th BIRTHDAY It was the record label that changed the face of America... Motown Records – home of legendary singers including Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder – is 50 years old this month (Jan09). Songwriter Berry Gordy launched the label as Tamla Records on January 12 1959, with a modest 00 (£550) loan from his parents. With an eye for the next big thing and an unerring ear for a catchy melody, Gordy signed up a host of names who would go on to become influential and legendary figures in the history of pop music. Between 1961 and 1971, Detroit-based Motown scored an incredible 110 top ten hits with artists including The Jackson 5, Martha and the Vandellas, Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, and Gladys Knight & the Pips. The company became the first record label owned by an African-American to primarily feature African-American artists. And such was the huge commercial and critical success of its top-selling acts, the “Motown Sound” became a byword for soulful pop songs with catchy hooks. 50 years on, Motown's endless list of timeless classics – including Baby Love, Nowhere to Run, The Tracks of My Tears, You Can't Hurry Love, and I Want You Back – are testament to the lasting legacy of this extraordinary musical institution.
