Book Update!


We are pleased to report 'Hitsville! The Birth of Tamla Motown' is now with the printers and the launch has been set for 12th November  (just in time for Santa's sack). This will take place at The House of Soul, Belper, when the book will be on sale for the first time with a signing by the author Keith Rylatt from 1.00p.m. 

We shall also be staging an exhibition consisting of over 70 of Clive's previously unseen original photographs (currently at the framers) and as a one day only bonus giving 10% discount on all our Motown vinyl.

What we are certain is going to be a splendid occasion will be rounded off with a dance in the evening at 'The Old King's Head Belper', with our regular D.J's (Full line-up to be announced).

We hope that you can make it on the day, get a first look at this amazing book, Clive Stone's astonishing photographs and see what we are up to at Modus, The House of Soul.
