Motown's 10 Greatest Albums

2009 marks Motown's 50 anniversary, so a good time to come up with Motown lists. Motown was a singles factory, and not until the 1970's did albums matter to the company. So, making a list of my 10 favorite Motown albums is really a Stevie and Marvin affair with a few strays.

1. Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
2. Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
3. Stevie Wonder - Talking Book
4. Smokey Robinson - Quiet Storm
5. Rick James - Street Songs
6. Stevie Wonder - Innervisions
7. Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On
8. Temptations - Sing Smokey
9. Marvin Gaye - Here My Dear
10. Lionel Richie - Can't Slow Down
