    American Record Pressing in Owosso, MI was the only plant that it was a hard and fast changeover, and they were the first to use the new design. You're definitely right though that Monarch, the RCA...

    The "new" label designs were introduced in 1966. The first records with each design are as follows:

    Stevie Wonder "A Place In The Sun" Tamla 54139

    Darin is correct. Wini Brown and Winnie Brown are not the same person. The story I told above about meeting her happened in 2013, and Winnie was a similar age to most of the Motown artists she did...

    After Bob's 8 Mile shop closed down, he sold records out of his house and at local record shows up until he passed away last December.

    Like Darin, I was born too late to have the experience of shopping the cut-out/discount bins at department and record stores, and most of my "major scores" at flea markets/junk shops/thrift stores...

    I live in Detroit and would be interested in attending an SDF meetup, especially one that's outside.

    The master number on the Stereo promo is H-X-T2-908S03.

    I have both stock and promo ARP pressings of 25065. I've had an opposite experience and found that 25065 turns up far more frequently than...

    The flip of the Satintones 45 already mentioned is also kind of about cars. The lyrics talk about going to The Hop in his raggedy jalop that doesn't have brakes or a top.

    The album mix of "Time Is Passin' By" is way better than the 45 version too, imo. I've always loved that album and everything The Monitors have done. I bought my copy of the "Greetings..." album,...

    Wow. My question was cosmically answered by a complete set that just appeared on eBay with a very steep starting price. Looks like the boxes were sold as a set of two and contained a full run of all...

    That's really sad news. I met him at the last Detroit A-Go-Go event a couple of years ago. He was a really nice guy and seemed genuinely excited to meet his fans.

    His book is well worth a read as...

    Cool. The boxes are tricky to find, but they turn up occasionally. I'm guessing not a lot of people wanted to shell out the $1.20 for 8 cardboard records they probably already had the actual 45s of,...

    Is This The Same Shorty Long?

    I have my doubts this is the same Shorty Long that we all know, but the record is from his home town of Birmingham, AL and was released in 1958, which I imagine was before he moved to Detroit....

    Too many favorites to choose from, but the Stevie track that I've been listening to the most recently is "All I Do" off of the Hotter Than July album. It's better than the Tammi version imo.

    Ah, never mind. According to TCMS it is the exact same backing track and backing vocals on the two versions of "Camel Walk".

    I own a promo copy of Motown 1033 which credits LaBrenda Ben & The Vandellas on "Camel Walk" and just LaBrenda Ben on "The Chaperone". After the record was withdrawn and transferred to Gordy, both...
