Minacle Records

Can anyone help?

I don't seem to be able to find out any info on Minacle records, It must be a Motown related label the rights belong to Jobete.

Anyone got any information would be grateful.

The label with one of the all-time great sales slogans- "If it's a hit,it's a Miracle!"

Some Motown insiders have stated that they had heard that Berry Gordy originally set up that label for Miss Ray to run, because she wanted to try her hand in producing records and working with new, young artists.  But, clearly, Berry had a lot to do with the label from the beginning, both producing sessions and writing for the artists.  He wasn't going to give his long-coveted newly-signed Temptations away to solo handling by Raynoma.  She did use the label to get out a record on herself (Little Iva).  As stated above, Miracle Records was converted to Gordy Records in early 1962, with The Temptations, and Valadiers moving with the label.  Mel-O-dy Records was started soon after, as Motown's 4th imprint, at first, also as mainly an R&B label. before a big change a few months later, when they started a new Gospel label (Divinity), Jazz label (Workshop Jazz), and Mel-O-dy was converted first, to a catch-all label, adding Pop and novelty, and soon after, becoming a C&W label, ending up as a more diversified record company, attempting to serve several different musical markets with 6 different label imprints, using multiple distributors, and within one more year, opening up production offices and marketing offices in different areas of the country (Los Angeles, New York, and Texas).  So, Starting Miracle Records was the first major move to increase the size and diversification of the company.
