    Motown Books Published Over The Years

    A fellow Motown fan expressed an interest in the various Motown books which have been published over the years. I don't have them all, but I have quite a few.

    This listing of my Motown book collection is presented alphabetically by subject.

    Each entry starts with the subject in CAPS and within parentheses, followed by Title of the book, Author, and Year Published. For example:

    [[HEARD, FRAN) "I Remember Motown When We Were Just Family" - By Francis [[Fran Heard) Maclin [[Motown's Master Tape Librarian) - 2010

    The above book is about Fran Heard's position at Motown.

    The above book is a biography about The Marvelettes.

    [[MOTOWN) Where Did Our Love Go - The Rise And Fall Of The Motown Sound - By Nelson George - 1985.

    The above book is about Motown Record Corporation itself.

    Brilliant I have quite a few of these but there are some others that I will look forward to.

    Gary if you haven't read the "Miss Motown" it's amazing took me 2 years to sort it all out and quite a few of Motown experts.

    Also, there was that tome by Berry Gordy's pop. The name escapes me, however. Mostly covered the Gordy family dynamics. An 100 page or so paperback. Definitely long out-of-print.

    I've heard that this is a very good book and keep looking for it [["Custodians Of The Humming Bird") but it always seems too expensive for me - currently over 40 on Amazon and that's discounted.

    What was your first Motown book? Aside from sheet music books and discographies etc - my first proper one was Motown [[& The Arrival Of Black Music) by David Morse from around 1971. It seemed to be the only book available on Motown for many years.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/cookep...in/dateposted/

    Although everyone remembers "The Motown Story" from Blues & Soul magazine around 1970

    Roger: I agree with you completely about "Custodians." My only problem with the book is he should have had a proofreader who would assist him in organizing it better. There is no index in the back of the book. There are, however, lots of previously unpublished photos in the book. I guess that he might have been in a hurry to get it out. This might ultimately be the closest book on Golden World and associated labels EVER. It just perplexes me to see many inconsistencies in spelling of artists, i. e. one place it is spelled one way and later on another way. We will have to take it the way it is. A discography would have been ideal.

    Yes woodward it`s hard to read at times and has not been proof read and can be confusing. The story though is worth the effort. Al Cleveland`s book is far easier to read with a similar frustrating / tragic story line.

    Hi Graham! I have many of the books that you mentioned. Unfortunately, I don't have the book about Stevie's mother, Lula Hardaway, but I'm aware that Stevie gave her songwriter's credit on several of his mid-to-late '60s Motown recordings.

    I'm especially pleased, however, to report that I love Betty Lavette's version of "If I Were Your Woman". I bought her one and only Motown vinyl LP -- "Tell Me A Lie" -- upon its release back in 1982, and then I bought the CD when it became available a few years later.

    Here you go, my friend! Bettye Lavette's "If I Were Your Woman" -- scratch- and surface-noise free -- from the CD master-tape!

    Mystery, I do have Martha's book listed above as follows:

    [REEVES, MARTHA) Dancing In The Street - Confessions Of A Motown Diva - By Martha Reeves & Mark Bego - 1994

    Believe me, there's no way I would have not bought Martha's book. She & The Vandellas are among my very, VERY FAVE Motown artists!

    Both of these books look OUTSTANDING, Kev!! I've gotta seriously look into them. To your knowledge, are they still available or are they out of print?

    Roger, I see 3 books on your list which look especially appealing -- the one on Al Cleveland, Jack Ashford, and Suzanne DePasse. In your opinion, were they as informative about Motown as you had hoped?

    What I posted above were links to photos of the front and back of the same book - so only one thing to think about.

    The book - "Tamla Motown Worldwide" - is still available BUT please be careful as I note that it has blue on the cover [[mine is khaki as in my photos) and could be a German Edition. Whilst I would expect this to be in German - the samples with the same cover on the Maus website are in English so I'm really not sure - perhaps just a second edition [[?).

    You can purchase direct from Maus [[as I did). As it's a substantial book and in full colour it is worth what is being asked. Unsure about shipping costs though.

    Here's the link for Maus - please make proper enquiries as to German v English versions though as I'd hate for you to buy something that's not for you - https://maus-of-music.com/?page_id=156

    Please note they also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100063473405173

    Here's another one to add to the list. Ben Edmond's What's Going On-Marvin Gaye and The Last Days of the Motown Sound from 2001. A great look at Marvin Gaye's Classic LP and Motown Records at a critical juncture as the '70s began.

    Two I have which I forgot: "Calling Out Around The World a Motown Reader" Kingsley Abbott and the very informative "Motown The Golden Years " by Bill Dahl.
    There is one long out of print that I would love is "Memories of the 1962 Motown Revue" by Curtiss E. Goodson. He was a photographer who accompanied the tour and of course the book is a photograph album.

    Mercy, Mercy Me: The Art, Loves and Demons of Marvin Gaye by Michael Eric Dyson from 2004.

    Good Morning Gary
    I pulled out three other books The "Bill Dahl & John Swenson [[Stevie Wonder)" both 1986, the other "Kingsley Abbott" was 2001. This book is more related to the UK and also has a "foreword by Martha Reeves" 250 pages and very small wording.

    Good Morning, Graham! You guys have an array of Motown books -- many of which I've never heard of. That's the neat thing about Motown! It seems like everybody loved it -- on both sides of the Atlantic -- and everybody wanted to write about it.

    I think all Motown enthusiasts owe a debt of gratitude to Peter Benjaminson. As a reminder, Peter wrote the first U S book on Motown, The Story of Motown. He also wrote a book on Motown's first superstar Mary Wells, a book on Florence Ballard - The Lost Supreme, and more recent the Super Freak book on the life of Rick James. He has an excellent website: peterbenjaminson.com which provides details on all of his books, including his latest on a non-Motown subject, Betty Boop.

    Peter is a leading expert on Motown and he deserves credit for tacking four books to his record on Motown. Check him out. The books are all still available on Amazon.com.

    Thanks for the reminder, woodward. I have all of Peter Benjaminson's Motown-related books and they're very well written. I've been meaning to order his Rick James "Super Freak" book but, for whatever reason, kept putting it off. Your reminder just took care of that. My Amazon copy will be here Monday! Thanks!
