I have 2 original copies. Both have "Tam 101 -G1" and "Tam 101 G-2" etched. No Sheldon stamp. 1719 Gladstone Ave. was the first address of Tamla Records, and was the address of Ray-Ber Music (and RayBer Records. That record was booted in the 1980sor early 1990s. I don't know if there were 2 or more pressing orders for local Detroit distribution, but as soon a many orders were coming in that Gordy couldn't fill, he made his pressing/dist lease deal with United Artists. So, I wonder why your copy had a Sheldon stamp or "Sheldon" scratched in the trail. I have NEVER seen "Sheldon" on ANY 1959 Tamla Record. NONE of mine have that, and I don't remember seeing a stamp (Sheldon or Bell Sound) on any 1959 Tamla. My first is 54030 from 1960. As the record was also mint, I suspect that it was a bootleg. Motown never issued any legitimate re-issued 45 of it.
