Motown: Color and Music

Paul Riser

Paul Riser, former producer for Motown Records, grew up in Detroit. Regarding the culture of Motown, he said, "Berry Gordy ... didn't want songs that would just lean towards a particular culture, a particular community, he wanted songs that the world would embrace ... to this day, I don't see music as a color thing ... The only thing in music that is black and white are the notes in the page."
