Tamla Motown was formed by music legend Berry Gordy in 1965 to release his US soul recordings in the rest of the world, having set up a series of labels of varying names to service the home market.
Motown is one of the worlds most famous record labels and is synonymous with soul. The period covered between 1965 and 1976 saw music history made by the likes of the Supremes, Four Tops, Temptations, Marvin Gaye and many more whose releases are covered here.
This book provides a complete discography of Tamla Motowns UK singles between 1965-76. It also tells the stories behind them in fascinating detail for the very first time. Apart from a Motown Reader reprinting articles about the label, published in 2001, the subject has barely been covered by UK books and Berry Gordys autobiography is now out of print and much sought after.
Tamla Motown: The Stories Behind The Singles includes artist summaries, sections on statistics, facts and feats and an index of tracks, making it the first definitive guide to the UK output of Berry Gordys historic US labels.
