Finally on CD what is probably the biggest rarity of the mighty Cinevox catalogue (the record label that released Cherry Five, Goblin, and Reale Impero Britannico)!
Motowns were an English band from Liverpool who landed in Italy in the mid sixties. Their first album “Sì, proprio i Motowns” came out in 1967 on RCA, followed by a long series of singles, most of them being cover version of beat music hits. After some label changes and some other singles, they were signed to Cinevox in 1971 and immediately recorded “Motowns”, a record that is far away from their beat origins, being halfway between psychedelia and classic progressive. It’s only because of its extreme rarity that such a great record was never noticed by prog-lovers, as it represents the missing link in the progressive discography of the Cinevox label, and is also an interesting connection between British and Italian progrock.
This first-time-ever reissue faithfully reproduces the orginal artwork and contains detailed liner notes by musical journalist Franco Vichi.
