    Joseph, what a fun collection you have. How did you ever learn about the Dutch Fan Club? (Although I think their nomenclature is faulty...calling it the "Dutch Supremes Fan Club" instead of the "Supremes Dutch Fan Club" makes it sound like there was a group of three girls in pigtails and wooden shoes, perhaps made up like the Marvelettes in that well known photo of them dressed that way!)

    Interesting to see that the Dutch Supremes fanclub was in Delfgauw, close to where I live. Did they issue a magazine at the time?
    Yes they did, I had quite a few issues, but they became lost over time.

    Hey Kenneth, I joined The Supremes fan club early on, maybe early 1965 and this was the button I received. As I recall a newsletter from the fan club offered the opportunity for fans of the girls to become pen pals with fans in other countries through the club. I became pen pals with a guy named Paul in Holland and from there it lead to me being a member of the Dutch Supremes fan club.

    The Supremes fan club had lot of cool things that I have lost over time. I remember they sent an Air Mail letter to fan club members announcing they would be on "Hulabaloo" to sing "Back In My Arms Again".

    Great idea for a thread, Kenneth.

    Actually I said something wrong in the above post. I should’ve said that Diana was the name given to her at birth, not Diane. I believe people always assume it was Diane.

    Thanks for the feedback and the contributions. It is fun to see all these things I never knew I was missing!

    Well for today's installment I will start out with a couple Marvin items. This is the cover photo proof for "The Moods of Marvin Gaye". I wish I could remember what all is written on the back of this one. I know is says "Title in yellow" as well as other information on what should appear on the cover. Both of these items were originally from Joe's collection as well.

    This is the cover photo proof for the shelved "Marvin Gaye at The Copa" LP. On the back is written "Marvin Gaye at the Copa" and "proposal for never released L.P." in a different hand, presumably Joe's. I've pictured it with the eventual CD release with, according to the liner notes, "Cover image based on original cover mock-up".

    This order form is a little older than the one Kenneth started out this thread with as it dates from 1969. I like the cover with the small photos of the artists. This is printed on yellow paper with red and black print so it photographs a bit oddly.

    I picked up this piece as you generally never see this letter that was included with the Xit "End" promo 45 on Rare Earth, a project the Terrana's produced. What was interesting to me is to know the picture sleeves were printed gratis by Ivy Hill Lithography and that around 7500 copies of the disc were pressed.

    Hey! I'm applauding you here! I KNEW I had better snap these up as soon as they were released. One of the few times I gave absolutely no consideration to choosing between paying my light bill and buying Motown! I ain't no fool. I knew this was probably going to be once in a lifetime. I also give you props for sticking with the collection all the way. I stopped at 1969, and even then, that was just for the sake of completion of my favorite era of Motown.

    I love picture sleeves. I've collected a few too and maybe will share some here. This one is interesting because they used another photo of Mary vs. the one used on the "More Hits" album. Instead of both Florence and Mary appearing to be looking toward Diana, as on the album cover, here, all us guys can pretend Mary is looking at US!

    What a fun and great piece of memorabilia! I do agree with you, it does seem that if it ain't The Beatles (or as Catherine O'Hara would say it, The BEET-tulls") or Rock, there doesn't seem to be as much enthusiasm for this sort of thing. But hey, the masses are so easily led, whereas we here know where it's really at!

    And is it just me or does the art work for the Smokey Robinson & The Miracles Four In Blue album look a bit different here?

    It is. It's a little hard to detect, but the typography is different and I believe the photo of the group is outlined. Looks a bit more eye-popping than what was released. I think I like this one better.

    Sophisticated Soul, this is really fantastic. In its own way, it says more about The Supremes than a ton of books. That the group, a trio of Black women from Detroit were being viewed by the mainstream as the "Andrew Sisters of the Sixties" says a lot about how much The Supremes were being embraced by so many, teenagers as well as adults. I also like how the writer mentions "Where Did Our Love Go" being played for The Gemini crew!

    Also Flo's photo is flipped from the version that appears on "More Hits".

    As I was rereading the article I thought the same thing. It really says a lot. I remember how happy I was that this article mentioned WDOLG being played for the astronauts, because in the general news it was only the Beatles songs that were mentioned.

    The Supremes on other carriers than vinyl: still sealed Ampex tape and on eight-track. Here in Europe eight-track never caught on as a format.

    No I have not seen the blue lettering version before. I think I like it more, better contrast. You've got some great stuff, I love the "Rodgers & Hart" reel-to-reel! Very cool.

    In the book The Motown Album (1990) there is a picture from Mary Wilson in Studio A, addressing Smokey, Berry, Diana and a lot of other people. On the table in front of her is the 1965 UK Tour Program of The Tamla Motown Show, so I assume this is around that time. And Mary is wearing a T-shirt of the Dutch pirate station Radio Veronica. At the time these pirate stations, broadcasting from the North Sea just out of the territorial waters of the Netherlands and the UK , were very important for Motown, since regular stations like the BBC did not play their music. I also found a picture of Mary wearing the same T-shirt while dancing with Florence and Diana in what looks like a living room. Always wondered who’s living room this was. Anyone?

    You're very right Waiting, I hadn't noticed that! Yes, a cool modern font is used and the outlining around the group photo really adds a lot! I think I like the unreleased one better too. Here's a close up of it.

    Speaking of Ampex reel to reels, here is a promotional poster from 1969 for Ampex tapes featuring The Supremes. Ampex produced both reel to reel and cassette tapes. There is also a very cool Aretha Franklin poster from the same series. I like the dot pop-art style of the poster. Sorry for the poor photo, it was really hard to get a pic of in the frame!

    I've always thought this Billboard ad for "Ain't No Mountain" was one of the more lavish ads I'd ever seen, with the attached special picture sleeve. As far as I'm aware, they did not actually come with a record. (I could imagine how difficult that would have been for the USPS mailing an already oversize magazine, with a record to boot!) At any rate, years ago I purchased one of these sleeves by itself and wondered why it had an odd glue strip residue on the one side, but I discounted it to a machine screwing up during the production process. When I found this ad I finally discovered my answer for the excess glue, it was one of these out of Billboard. There is also the DJ blurb on the special Billboard sleeves, which I've included a close-up of.

    Thank you Marc.

    Here is Yvonne Fair's Motown ID card. I acquired this not too long ago and had never seen one before in photo or in person, but I had heard of them. By the late 60's Mr. Gordy was getting pretty paranoid regarding his own security. By the time the Woodward Donovan building was in high use, you needed these cards to enter the facility, whether you were an artist or a general employee. It is signed by Yvonne and Mrs. Edwards.

At the time these pirate stations, broadcasting from the North Sea just out of the territorial waters of the Netherlands and the UK , were very important for Motown, since regular stations like the BBC did not play their music. I also found a picture of Mary wearing the same T-shirt while dancing with Florence and Diana in what looks like a living room. Always wondered who’s living room this was. Anyone?
    In THE MOTOWN ALBUM, the living room was said to be at Loucye Gordy Wakefield's home.

    In Diana's book, she captioned a similar photo as taking place at Flo's house. Originally I believed she said this because in her photo, you can see Flo's mother seated on the couch watching and I didn't think the girls had their own homes yet. But in another photo in her book, Diana-wearing the same outfit-poses in front of her own home. So the homes were definitely purchased by the time of this get-together.

    Speaking of Willie and Lester, here is the "Quality Control" copy I acquired from a Detroit dealer. I don't recall seeing any QC LP's so found it quite interesting. I would surmise though that all records pressed, LP or 45, would have had a QC pressing submitted for approval. I guess we just don't see them on the market.

    I know there have been some very disappointed Billboard readers at my local library. Because as soon as I saw that picture sleeve, I "checked it out" and never returned it.

    Can’t seem to turn it
    I learned through trial and error what worked for me was after taking the photo, I went into 'edit' mode on my phone and simply rotated the image. Even if the image photographed vertically it would still load here horizontally. But if I rotated the image on my phone 4 times (making it back to the original vertical image), and then saved it that way, the image no longer seems to "wobble" from vertical to horizontal when I load it here.

    It's worked that way since. If you see early in this thread originally the Motown Order Catalog had loaded horizontally but I was able to correct it later. I have an iPhone X.

    Thanks a lot Reese! I never noticed that the girls were wearing the same clothes in the pictures in Diana's book. Only excuse I have is that I always concentrated more on the first page, signed for me by Diana!

    It's interesting that in both the Motown Order Forms which have been displayed here, that both seem to focus on the catalog's diversity including many Rare Earth and other artists which were relatively obscure at the time or as @luckyluckyme points out never saw a release.

    I suppose Motown was always looking for the next big thing as record companies tend to do and didn't focus as much on their established acts, perhaps because they already had a certain "floor" of sales that they knew they would generate without additional hype. Any other thoughts?

    The Supremes on other carriers than vinyl: still sealed Ampex tape and on eight-track. Here in Europe eight-track never caught on as a format.
    I was going to make a joke that eight-track never caught on here in the States either, but I'm not sure that's really a joke. I HATED eight-track. That annoying buzzing and clicking as the tape switched between channels. YUCK. And I love your collection!

    Well, now you've convinced me I was VERY short-sighted in stopping so early! Looking over the tracklisting, I'm seeing quite a lot of songs I actually do like from the 70's at Motown. I shouldda kept my eyes shut!! Oh, well, I might just eat it and pay the price on ebay!

    Good Lord, what was the graphic arts department thinking at Motown? Why on earth did they stick us with an album cover that looked like it was done on the cheap? I've seen better album covers on those budget, rip-off albums. This looks MUCH better than the schlepp that went out.

    Hey, I've got a proof sheet, or a copy of it anyway that this photo was taken from. It looks like a photo session and Yvonne is wearing the same thing with the same hair style as pictured here. If I find it, I'll post it here in the future.
