Motown 25 DVD - Time Life 3 Disc Collector's Set - As Seen On TV

DIRECT FROM HITSVILLE, USA!

Celebrating the first quarter century of the little company that founder Berry Gordy Jr. turned into Hitsville, U.S.A., his history-making success story deserved a history-making concert—Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever! It debuted on NBC on May 16, 1983, and the morning after became an immediate water-cooler sensation. The highlight that caused the most talk was Michael Jackson’s world premiere of his moonwalk (aka “six seconds that changed the world”) but Motown 25 had an abundance of other buzz-worthy moments, too—reunions by the Miracles, the Supremes and the Jackson 5; the first battle of the bands between Four Tops and The Temptations; and the hottest comedian in the world at the time, Richard Pryor, as host. Motown 25 was not simply a 2-hour TV special…it was a flashpoint cultural event!
