Motown: I Hear A Symphony

Paolo Hewitt, Melody Maker, 3 April 1982

TIMELESS music...a rare and precious thing...hard to find ...even harder to create: that's Motown music when it was in its heyday. It was a music that spanned the years, transcended all limitations and made a mockery of the theory that pop music can only be disposable and gleaming.

Total word count of piece: 1944
