In the words of label Gigante Sound:
The Motown Meltdown series is born from a special collection of discs called the Motown Master Recordings Karaoke by Singing Machine. Each of these extraordinary discs contains “8 classic hits by the original artists”. These are the ORIGINAL classic Motown recordings with separated stereo channels, left and right. The left side; the instrumental, the right; isolated vocals. And thanks to the internet and a socially irresponsible record label intern, for Volume 2 we have added some of the original Motown multi-track sessions to the sample library! There is one basic ground rule for the making of these songs; the only sources the artists are allowed to utilize are those of the karaoke collections and multi-track sessions. No outside sounds allowed. In other words, no other drum beats, basslines, keys etc. can be added into the mix.
Due to their blatant skirting of all modern copyright laws these Meltdowns are also completely unreleaseable in the commercial marketplace! So we have gone the route of “The Grey Album” and “Pet Sounds: In the Key of Dee” and unleashed them as viruses on the world, absolutely free. So, sit back and enjoy our skewed take on the greatest Motown singles of the 20th Century!
