Various Artists | The Early Motown EPs | Vinyl LP Box Set

  • Sale
  • $ 59.99

Together for the frist time as a vinyl collection - Motown's first 7 EPs. Super rare and super collectable, this vinyl set is a must for any Motown fan. Strictly limited and individually numbered. Motown EPs came in glossy photo covers with some (not all) carrying pictures of the artists and for most this was the first glimpse of newly found idols. Like mini LPs the back sleeves sometimes carried small essays, a valuable source of information regarding artists at a time when the USA seemed so far away and news was scarce. The aim was to whet the fans appetites for current released LPs. Artists featured on these EPs were an early Motown hall of Fame _ The Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and The Supremes to name a few. The set begins with the Miracles Shop Around EP and finishes with the Hitsville USA No 1 EP.
