Motown Unreleased 1966 Released

Motown Unreleased 1966 Released cover

Digital release of unreleased motown tracks from 1966

Thanks to copyright laws recent years have seen an annual release of unreleased motown tracks that are just about to hit the 50 year old mark. It's all basically down to a copyright legal requirement to publicly release any track by a certain age or lose the copyright protection

This is normally done via digital means, and yesterday thanks to the Soulful Detroit topic click here to view word was out that this years release is now live and available for purchase and preview via Windows Store and Itunes

The list of the 80 tracks follows the link below

Note for Uk types while can preview the tracks via either windows store or the web page, I can't find a way to purchase individual tracks and its similar for itunes, so maybe it's a case of Us release for purchase only at the current moment?

As an English type, I am very frustrated that there appears to be no way for me to buy these yet!:g:

Is "ow Great Thou Art by Kim Weston" an old Yorkshire song? :rofl:

from here looks and reads like a pure digital release Dave

am guessing that the 80+ track listing being split into disc lists may be an online commerce thing

happy new year

I would imagine that is due to copyright.  Doesn't it run out in the US after 50 years, that is why Motown issue these before it runs out.  Doesn't the copyright last longer here, 70 years???

I initially used this link at the top of this page to listen to snippets. Supposedly need an acccount, but maybe that's to buy. I could listen listen without any login (only about 30 secs, like amazon etc.)

Cheers

ok checked out some media providers uk versions

spotify, deezer, groove all have the previous unreleased available motown unreleased releases to listen in full if signed in but not the latest motown unreleased 1966

usa services appear to have it available to listen in full etc

so guess for official listening uk wise its a case of wait and see if it shows up here...
