Hitsville, U.S.A.

Magnet #1049 - Hitsville, U.S.A.

According to my parents, I've been to Detroit. Being as I can't remember it, I'm guessing it doesn't count.

But, my friend dropped by Detroit on a work roadtrip to Canada, and brought back a magnet set for me from the Motown Historical Museum.

The museum's housed in the original building where Berry Gordy, Jr., began Motown Records, the label that gave us greats such as the Temptations, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Diana Ross and the Supremes, and the Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder.

Sounds like a pretty cool place to visit, because you can see visit the control room and the echo chamber and the infamous Studio A. Talk about standing where greatness stood!
