Motown Memories – 16 Non-Stop Tamla Hits

LP (Item 942051) Tamla/Motown (UK), 1960s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has light wear and aging.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Eddie Kendricks

Eddie Kendricks At His Best
Tamla, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Sublime groovers from Eddie's boogie period – a time when he revived his career brilliantly, by hooking a groove and helping to take Motown back onto the dancefloors! The set's filled with classic uptempo numbers – with 10 tracks in all: "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind (part ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP
A 2 LP career retrospective of Marvin Gaye's recordings with Motown – one that doesn't try to be a greatest hits or fully comprehensive – but rather dedicates a side of each LP to different themes as approached by Marvin! Side 1 is subtitled "Crossroads" and features "Aft ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross/Michael Masser

Mahogany
Motown, 1975. Very Good+
One of Diana's big cinematic moments of the 70s – and a record that's better than we remember! The theme of the film – "Mahogany" – was covered so many times during the 70s that it's easy to forget how great it is – a sad, slow tune with a meandering vocal that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diana Ross

Boss
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
Diana Ross gets some great assistance on this set – the club classic team of Ashford & Simpson, who help give Diana a groove that's very much like their own great work of the time! Tunes are long and clubby, but never throwaway pop disco – and with Ashford & Simpson at the helm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, 1967. Very Good+
Early work by Marvin Gaye – with many gems from the early and mid 60s that were big or minor hits for Marvin during his early days at Motown. The set includes "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", "I'll Be Doggone", "Ain't That Peculiar", "Try It ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Preston & Syreeta

Billy Preston & Syreeta
Motown, 1981. Very Good+
A nice little follow-up to Billy Preston & Syreeta's work on the Fast Break soundtrack – and a record that's one of the few key sides to carry the older Motown duet soul mode firmly into the 80s! There's a great sense of balance here – one that uses Syreeta's sweeter vocal approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown, 1960s/1970s. Very Good+
Titles include "When I'm Gone" by Brenda Holloway, "Jamie" by Eddie Holland, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by Undisputed Truth, "I Can't Believe You Love Me" by Tammi Terrell, "Indiana Wants Me" by R Dean Taylor, "Function At The Junction" by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

Hit Man
Tamla, 1975. Very Good
Eddie certainly was the "hit man" on this one – a tight album of hard stepping soul tracks, mostly cut in Eddie's famous "boogie" mode of the mid 70s! The cuts mix wonderful soul vocals with some tight jazzy instrumentation – laid down by players like Wah Wah Ragin, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Jane Girls

Mary Jane Girls
Motown, 1983. Very Good
The great first album from The Mary Jane Girls – easily their best, and an 80s pop soul delight all the way through! Rick James is firmly at the helm of the quartet for this release – and although the sound has elements of James' own crossover funk of the time, there's also an approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Commodores

Commodores
Motown, 1977. Very Good
A classic self-titled set from The Commodores – not their debut album, but a record that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Lucien

Rashida
RCA, 1973. Very Good
Amazing work from the great Jon Lucien – and probably his best-ever record! The album has Jon hitting a totally unified vision of spacey soul – bringing in elements of Brazilian music and touches of his Carribean roots, fusing them together with a sweet jazzy style and one of the most ...
