Anyone know why it was called Tamla Motown in The UK? I've never heard it referred to that in The US. (Off to Google it)

Also loved the drab olive green slip covers for the 45's. I had a record rack full of them. Then all the Greatest Hits albums, which generally was a duplication of what I already had on 45's... but it had to be done.

To answer my own question, it appears Tamla was the original name, and evolved into Motown in The US. The name Tamla Motown was the RCA record label adopted in The UK and Europe.

Not sure why though - I haven't been able to figure that one out.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Motown Records is an American record label owned by Universal Music Group. It was originally founded by Berry Gordy Jr. as Tamla Records on January 12, 1959, and was incorporated as Motown Record Corporation on April 14, 1960. Its name, a portmanteau of motor and town, has become a nickname for Detroit, where the label was originally headquartered.

Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as an African American–owned label that achieved significant crossover success. In the 1960s, Motown and its subsidiary labels (including Tamla Motown, the brand used outside the US) were the most successful proponents of what came to be known as the Motown Sound

Still have 45's in green and orange sleeves, plus all the Motown chartbuster LP's. Very treasured priceless collection.

Motown & Trojan...the only two labels I needed when was a young feller. They’re still pretty damned good
