Motown 25 - Time Life 3 DVD Set


Celebrating the first quarter century of the little company that founder Berry Gordy Jr. turned into Hitsville, U.S.A., his history-making success story
deserved a history-making concert—Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever! It debuted on NBC on May 16, 1983, and the morning after became an immediate water-cooler sensation. The highlight that caused the most talk was Michael Jackson’s world premiere of his moonwalk (aka “six seconds that changed the world”) but Motown 25 had an abundance of other buzz-worthy moments, too—reunions by the Miracles, the Supremes and the Jackson 5; the first battle of the bands between Four Tops and The Temptations; and the hottest comedian in the world at the time, Richard Pryor, as host. Motown 25 was not simply a 2-hour TV special…it was a flashpoint cultural event!

The show deservedly won an Emmy Award, but has been unseen for over 20 years, until today. Available now as a 3-DVD version, features 5.1 surround sound that reveals the music to its fullest potential. Virtually every major Motown artists is spotlighted, including Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Mary Wells, Martha Reeves and Junior Walker. They perform classic Motown hits at this once-in-a-lifetime concert. Plus, get nearly 6 hours of Bonus Features, including: Never-before-seen rehearsal footage of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” with Michael going through his paces in a t-shirt and jeans. Marvin Gaye rehearsing his masterwork, “What’s Going On,” in a version perhaps as powerful as the one in the NBC broadcast. Roundtable discussions with Motown 25 producers and performers, taped at the location of the original concert, The Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Included are Smokey Robinson, Duke Fakir (Four Tops), and Otis Williams (The Temptations), among others. Four featurettes that tell the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the historic Motown 25 concert, and also offer new insights into the rise of Motown and its roster of influential stars.
