Motown Remixed

According to, some classic Motown songs are getting the remix treatment:

Remix pioneer Tom Moulton has been busy revisiting nuggets from the Motown vaults.... "Too often, the instruments on these older songs were recorded without much care," Moulton tells Billboard. "You listen to the master tapes and it is not uncommon to hear things recorded in a sloppy manner or to hear lots of noise in the mix."
So, in other words, Motown was "Hissville, U.S.A." I'm just glad that Tom Moutlon has come along. Maybe now that he's cleaning up some tracks, Motown will finally get the recognition it deserves.
