A ’60s Detroit Music Moment Revisited: 1965

‘MOTOWN RECORDS, MAN, WHICH IS BIG, REALLY BIG’

SUNDAY, MARCH 21, 1965

EIGHT DOORS OPEN OFF THE first floor hallway at 2652 W. Grand Boulevard and when they are closed, the tiny passageway grows eerie. You are alone there, but with a distant sound of music — that is part blues, part gospel and a lot of rhythm. (CONTINUES — please read the complete article below) . . . .

    At the time this Freep article was written, I was working for Burroughs Corporation in their Milwaukee Building at Milwaukee and Third in Detroit’s New Center Area. It was only one block west of the GM Building and a short walk farther east across Woodward Ave. to Hitsville USA at 2652 W. Grand Blvd. I walked past the Motown Records building many times on my lunch hour strolls I didn’t realize at the time what a historical site it was or how famous it would become in the music industry. My cousin was one of a very few music teachers in Michigan certified to teach music to the blind. Stevie Wonder was once a student of hers at Michigan School for the Blind in Lansing so I always followed his career closely. This article brought back a lot of memories of those frequent lunchtime walks past Hitsville USA in the mid-1960s. Thanks for posting it.
