OK, the MT editors and the readers adore Melodies & Memories. For good reason — its claims to fame go well beyond its repeated winning of this category: It's Eminem's favorite local record shop. It's steeped in rich, Motown history. It boasts the region's largest selection of boxed sets. It features tens of thousands of titles on vinyl, CD and cassette, 8-track, 78s, 45s, with stellar classic rock, jazz, blues and soul sections. It pays tribute to pop culture and decades of music with its memorabilia, as well as an entire section devoted to rock posters and photos. Often you'll run across Motown stars shopping — or those who backed the Motown stars.
