to being quite compelling music. Plus, there's a nice side effect to having Motown try so many different sounds: it winds up giving a good idea of what the R&B market sounded like in the early '60s, giving a good context for Motown's big hits.
To celebrate Motown's 60th anniversary ahead of Motown 60: A GRAMMY Celebration airing on CBS on April 21, we're highlighting 10 of the label's secret weapons. Eddie Holland had some early success as a solo artist for Motown with hits like "Jamie," but he suffered from terrible stage fright and eventually made the transition to working behind-the-scenes for the label. He became one-third of the legendary nd songwriting and production team with his brother Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier.

Perhaps no other act represents the Motown sound better than the Supremes. From their time as teenagers hanging around Hitsville begging and cajoling anyone to give them a chance or singing backup when needed, the Supremes became one of the best pop acts of all time. Working hard at recording and being a regular opening act for various Motown revues, the Monitors weren’t as successful as Motown would’ve wanted. To supplement their incomes they took other jobs within the label, such as Street being part of the Quality Control team. Smokey Robinson is one of the best songwriters of the 20th century. The ’60s are full of hits he wrote for the Miracles and other Motown acts but the maturity of Robinson’s songwriting really demonstrates itself on 1967’s Make It Happen, with fun dance numbers and ballads as only the Miracles can sing them.
