About this product
- DescriptionWhere Did Our Love Go? chronicles the rise and fall of Motown Records while emphasizing the role of its dynamic founder, Berry Gordy Jr. First published in 1986, this classic work includes a new preface by Nelson George that identifies Motown\u2019s influence on young recorders and music mogels of today, including R. Kelly, D\u2019Angelo, Sean Combs, and Russell Simmons. Gordy\u2019s uncanny instinct for finding extraordinary talent--whether performers, songwriters, musicians, or producers--yielded popular artists who include the Supremes, the Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson, the Miracles, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, the Four Tops, and Stevie Wonder. Not shy about depicting Gordy\u2019s sometimes manipulative and complex relationships with his artists, George reveals the inner workings of the music business and insightful material on the musicians who backed these stars. The large cache of resulting Motown melodies is still alive in commercials, movies, TV programs, and personal ipods today.
- Author BiographyNelson George is an executive movie producer and the prolific, best-selling author of The Death of Rhythm And Blues, Hip Hop America, and other books. He is co-executive producer of Vh1's Hip Hop Honors and a consultant to Black Entertainment Television's news division.
