    He did the best version of "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone". Cool to see him singing it live.

    The record store I worked at in Detroit sold a copy of one of the 1963 "issues" back in 2016 or 2017. I was reminded of this by someone sending me one of the Comotion newsletter things from the 70s....

    Cool! Even if there are no more early promo LPs, at least this might be able to help someone in the future trying to research the same thing. The Motortown Revue Vol 2 omits the Marvelettes medley...

    There are two annoyingly different versions of the all-black misspelled cover too: one with information on the spine [[name spelled correctly), and one without. Couldn't tell you if one is rarer than...

    The Temptations & The Devil

    What's up with The Temptations and the devil logo used in the 60s? I understand the obvious temptation/sin/devil relationship, and even though I think it looks great, it's a surprising, or possibly...

    Does anyone know why the world "Golden" was removed from the name San Remo Golden Strings on UK Tamla-Motown releases? The first thing I noticed with those Marble Arch releases was that it was the...

    Motown Mobile Kit

    I'm pretty sure these are part of the Motown Mobile Kit that was advertised on the album inner sleeves - first time I've ever seen these. It's supposed to be a set of 7. Does anyone have a complete...

    I'm pretty sure that image is of the Lollipops that recorded for RCA, which is a different group than the Motown/Impact group.

    I know that one member of the Motown Lollipops was Arenita Walker,...

    Going by the stories that I've heard from Detroiters who knew Jim Riley, I don't think he would've ever needed to borrow money from Berry Gordy. I have a strong suspicion that this was meant to be an...

    Motown Labels Numbering System

    I've read that the Tamla 54000 numbering system is a sort of tribute to Berry Gordy's first hit with Jackie Wilson, "Reet Petite" on Brunswick 55024. And Motown seems pretty straight forward when...

    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...
