Major LP Release from Tamla

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 13 January 1968

THE BIG R & B companies have a habit of LP release lists which make mouths watery with anticipation. Of course the omnipresent financial problem presents some difficulty — and Tamla Motown have really tempted soul fans this month with one of their best ever LP releases. Taking a look at them, the most interesting disc (to my mind) is Motown Memories (TML 11064). This contains many historic Motown recordings which were either previously unavailable or else simply scarce, deleted, or difficult to obtain.
