Why Mono?

Motown's hits were engineered to leap out of the radio. Their mono mixes imparted power, presence, and immediacy to certain sonic ingredients - especially bass and vocals. Hear these songs in mono and you'll feel the energy, emotion, and soul of Motown's classic era.

About The Audio

Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio remastered all five albums in mono from original master tapes. Renowned for his all-analog mastering techniques, Kevin spoke to us about his deep affection for classic Motown music and his remastering work on these albums.
