Seduction is all about doing what you want to do. It is not about knowledge. It is not about manipulation. It is not about attaining all that you think you should. Rather more humbly, the true value of being a great seducer — just like playing a sport that you truly love — is that it isn't all about a medal in the Olympics, or about being written down in the history books. It's about loving what you do. The greatest reward is that through doing what you love you can more clearly be who you want to be, and feel how you want to feel. Unfortunately, to many seduction and sex are seen as gossip topics, topics upon which we stroke each others' egos, because we have "answers to the big questions," when it actually is something whose true purpose is both intricate and innate: the reward of freedom.
The Complete Motown Singles has been a dream project of Motown and soul fanatics for many years, ever since the first decade of Stax/Volt singles was compiled in an impressive nine-disc box set in 1991. The Complete Motown Singles might have seemed like a logical move to soul collectors and fanatics, but it remained in the realm of fantasy for many years because, as enticing as that set was, it was difficult to create.
An extraordinary enterprise … As an experience of the sounds and styles of French organ culture this boxed set, it seems to me, is indispensable … the body of music is mostly, here, not created but simply made alive by the apt choice of instruments … it is a resource to which to return with delight.
