Motown Yesteryear

Recommended Posts

I've seen and owned many of these singles over the years (don't have any nowadays )... So I was wondering if these are Motown releases, under licence, or unofficial releases ?

I've got loads, they make a nice little collection. I like the label, they look great as a set! Even though they're official only worth a few quid each tops I would guess.

Yesteryear still going then Kev? Thought it was an early 70s thing.

 

Motown Yesteryear started in January 1973 and continued until the mid-80's (1986-ish as far as I know).

 

Motown distributed Hi Records from 1982 until 1993 which explains the Al Green titles.

 

Below is the ad announcing the "Motown Yesteryear" series from the 20 January 1973 issue of Billboard Magazine.

apart from maybe the supremes stoned love, unedited lp version which has become sought after, been fetching £30-50 on occasion
