This is a collection of 29 Detroit Instrumental Classics taken from the original two Motown albums. Earl Van Dyke was mainly responsible for the Motown sound, from about 63' as the session bandleader. Here he plays the organ and gives some well known Motown tunes the instrumental treatment, just brilliant. A copy of the original Detroit Instruments album, on UK Tamla Motown, would sell for around £120! Its was not issued under the name "Funk Brothers" as Berry Gordy did not wish the word Funk to be assosciated with Motown. The second part of the CD is by Coker Campbell and his band, again from his only album on Motown. Great dance music on Marginal CD MAR 070, Belgium import which is technically a bootleg.
