The Motown Remixed concept is REAL COOL too.

Go HERE and listen to Diana Ross & The Supremes - My World Is Empty Without You, or on the happy vibe, you can't go past the mix of I Want You Back by the Jackson 5, or Marvin Gaye's Lets Get It On.

A-B these with the other disc, Motown Unmixed.

...blurb ex The In Crowd:
These producers and remixers were given unprecedented access to the Motown vaults, to put their spin on classics from the most famous record label in popular music. They (respectfully) funk up, turn inside out and chill out best-loved Motown songs, from “I Want You Back” to “My World Is Empty Without You,” from “Let’s Get It On” to “Mary Jane.” Classic Motown’s most significant foray ever into DJ, dance and club culture, the project also includes the release of three vinyl mega-singles, which in total will include 10 of the album’s 15 tracks, with several of them in exclusive extended versions: “Volume 1,” “Volume 2” and “Volume 3” will all be released on May 10th. Additionally, Motown/UMe will issue a Motown Unmixed CD compilation, featuring original versions of songs from the album on May 24, the same day as the Remixed album.

Each time I wrote the word 'electric' on this post, I kept fucking it up by writing 'electirc'. Am I becoming dyslexic?
