The Motown label was founded by Berry Gordy in 1959 in Detroit and signed many, many names that went on to find fame and fortune. We take a look at some of the best Motown artists and marvel in the success of the Motown label!
Shorty Long joined Motown Records in 1963. He was the only Motown artist besides Smokey Robinson who was allowed to produce his own recordings in the 1960s. Long's 1966 single "Function at the Junction" was his first popular hit, reaching #42 on the national R&B charts. Other single releases included "It's a Crying Shame" (1964), "Chantilly Lace" (1967), and "Night Fo' Last" (1968).
