While viewing a Motown tribute on youtube http://youtu.be/rzTypmsrfJ8 , I noticed a very unusual vinyl record release on the VIP label in 1966 by The Abbey Tavern Singers entitled "We're Off To Dublin In The Green." Berry Gordy may have thought he could have made a profit by leasing the master tape in the U.S.
Here in Canada, this record was distributed by Arc Records, in Toronto. Thrift stores here in Canada can't give this item away, yet I was outbid on eBay recently for a near mint copy on eBay. Go figure!
