    The ongoing Complete Motown Singles series is an amazing history of Jamerson. They've currently released 21 CD's in 4 box sets, covering 1959-1964. I think they plan 12 boxes in total (up to 1972).

    I noticed a few Motown box set listings, a couple in that vain that I really dig are the Stax Boxes vols 1 & 2, like the Motown box, they are virtual bibles of R&B grooves. Highly recommended!
