Tamla Motown Experts

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for help from Tamla Motown experts regarding first issue label prints for the first 100 British releases on EMI's Tamla Motown series. Can anybody recommend somebody or a 'group'?

This is REALLY nerdy stuff I'm talking about Steve. More to do with British label stuff than discographies or artists, producers, arrangements, etc.

There's a Facebook group called "rare British soul releases" that would be worth trying

Thanks Nick, I posted a request for help on there last night :thumbsup:

This is REALLY nerdy stuff I'm talking about here. More to do with British label design stuff and font styles used than discographies, artists, producers, arrangements, etc.
