    The Crazy World Of Motown

    I was intrigued by this 8 track cartridge listed on Ebay since Arthur Brown was fairly popular in the 60s with The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown and a big hit with "Fire". I never equated him with Motown.

    I did know that around 1975 Motown distributed some records on the GULL label and by that route I do associate the single "Barbados" by Typically Tropical loosely with Motown (I had it via a UK Gull label release though).

    And it is by that same route the 1975 Arthur Brown album "Dance" (Gull GU6-405S1) was manufactured and distributed by Motown Record Corporation and the USA and Canada. Crazy.

    Yeah there were more Gull releases around that time thanks for posting those.

    I did wonder about Judas Priest. Kinda wondered about Blue Mink too.
