John Morales is no stranger to the compilation format, with long running UK imprint BBE serving up a great series of archival releases based around the New York disco icon's classic extended mixes. Here Morales digs through the sizeable archives of Motown to present a weighty 20 track selection of the label's dancefloor hits. The focus on Club Motown Volume 1 is squarely on the label's prodigious '80s output and features a pleasing mixture of stand out classics such as Lionel Ritchie's "All Night Long" and the iconic Rockwell heater "Somebody's Watching Me" alongside some lesser known gems all presented in extended 12" mix glory. Extra intrigue for Morales fans is present in the shape of six new and exclusive mixes from Morales including thundering takes on Teena Marie and Tate Vega. Includes in-depth, track-by-track liner notes co-written by John Morales and edited by Motown head honcho, Harry Wiengar
