In March 1960 London took up the option to release Barrett Strong’s classic single “Money (That’s what I want)” (London HLU 9088) which was at the time moving up the US hot 100 on it’s way to a #23 chart placing. Unfortunately the same thing never happened in Britain and the single flopped. Britain had to wait another eleven months before the next UK release, but what a release it was.

On really looking at the images posted this record just does not look right the dinked 4-pin OC (optional centre) is not to size or scale I am of the opinion that this is actually a picture sleeve with a "representation" of the label (not unlike the vile UMG hard to find CD's which had "representations of the Silver or Black "45" script EMI labels + shown with 1 1/2" large hole die-cut with a USA "spider 45 rpm adaptor and on a vile tacky and cheap BSR autochager! Why??? This NEVER EVER happened UK EMI wise)

Optimal Germany did NOT commission and secure a 7" 4-pin OC (optima lcentre) Dinker untl early this year and was first used on McCartney's repress on MPL-Concord-UMG of "Silly Love Songs" so unless a picture can be shown of the actual disc out of the sleeve with its "alleged" Dinked OC I don't believe it. I am of the opinion that the record is the same as the vile and crazy laughable gaff on the Digital MONO Magical Mystery Tour double EP retro release with it's joke and pretend drawn Dinked OC!

Can the poster of anyone subit or confirm otherwise! July 2014 Optimal Germany had NO Dinkers fact!

The guys notes are piffle!
The USA Anna repressing was licenced to UK Decca for it's London imprint came via USA United Artists
AFTER London had a few releases This, Marv Johnson and Smokey & Co
Philips Fontana had Motown for 4 flops even though the tracks are great and 1 The Marvelettes being USA Motown's first USA #1
Then UK Oriole picked up the licences and Launched Oriole American
UK EMI picked up the USA Motown licence in 1963 not 1965 and released the USA cross the family labels on $tateside!
On the back of the success of the Supremes finally putting Motown on the UK map comercially EMI in conjunction with Motown launched a hybrid Tamla-Motown label in>>>>>>>>>>>>> 1965 !!!! lot of records and 3 other UK labels had laid the ground work, Esp Oriole with exclusive shows on Radio Luxemburg! before the TMG's (Tamla, Motown & Gordy's UK-Euro collectives + the sub label and product of USA Motown's Soul label.

If you're going to tell a story get your facts in place first!

UK EMI launched 3 new Motown sub labels Mowest, Prodigal and Rare Earth in 1972

EMI lost the UK licence to Motown sadly to UK RCA Records division in 1982 the switch release being "Endless Love" Motown TMG 1240 the RCA pressings (sill done by EMI Hayes!) Had the slight advantage in that they all came in picture sleeves.
UK RCA launched the TMG missing pin the generic Gordy label to the UK also in 1982

RCA records division and exclusive owned territories use (not ownership) of Nipper and The Gramophone trade marks were sold on by the then USA RCA owners GEC to the German giants Ariola-BMG UK RCA suddenly went all German etc etc. This naturally included the continuning Euro territories Motown licences!.

Whilst under RCA-Ariola/BMG Money got it's first UK-Euro Silver on Black Tamla Motown release as part of The Dirty Dancing soundtrack and film hype (genric RCA had the soundtrack album) and was released as the B side to the Contours Do You Love Me this coupling was later re-promoted as part of RCA-BMG's Motown Singles Collection. (not to be confused with UK EMI's original late 70's Singles Collection all releases using the TMG prefix) So NO this UMG and sadly still mono retro release was and is not the first UK Tamla Motown label release of Money BUT is indeed of the original UK London (Anna) and USA Tamla and Anna B side OIP !

USA Motown finally scummed via hemmeriging revenue to Polygram and then Polygram to UMG
In the UK Motown became a sub label and under the umbrella of Polygram's Polydor brand and co parent.
Under Polydor/Polygram two new Motown sub labels were launched Funkydreads and ARP

The stewardship under the Polydor brand is still in place but the public face gives UMG the actual parentage!

The correct name and terminology for this kind of finished pressing is A Dinked 4-pin OC (optional centre) pressing

(I'd love to see someone attempt to push out or knock out the optonal centre, If they have to be foolishly removed they need to be pressed out with fingers and thumbs with some force and care not to snap or crack the record!!)

Great to see UMG starting to get UK things right Dinked OC's and no more 9 digit computer generated numbers!
back to Tamla Gordy Motown and a new 400 series nice to see what the other 99 are going to be.

Maybe at last Jimmy Mack AND Third Finger Left Hand as a UK First Time STEREO 45 long long long way too long overdue Jimmy Mack got its so long awaited Stereo mix 10 years back now for a CD retrospective it now needs VINYL as we soul-boys originally bought it on when it debuted in the UK after being withdrawn USA wise out of respect to those lost Jimmy Mack's that were not coming home from Vietnam!!!

Gordy was like that sometimes thoughtful and sincere!. Even though he still wanted his "Money" and truly robbed Mr Strong of ownership rights!

Hope these facts have now set the record straight and correctly!)

Like the Belgium pressing on Motown this French Tamla Motown release clearly states Stereo on the labels

not convinced at all if this is true or just silly wishful thinking! Needs actual sonic testing via headphones
there are a couple of awful fake stereo mixes released such as on the UK EMI Motown 20th Anniversary double album and a UK Harket licenced pressing!

Hear b4 you buy!

NB!

Not 100% convinced at all that this cut/pressing is indeed stereo at all don't think this has ever been mixed.
the UK EMI Motown 20th anniversay double album set has a really narrow fake stereo mix.

Odd that its is not anywhere on you tube in Stereo (the Harket release is some awful in the swimming pool duophonic reverb thing) and the tie in video on here with this Belgium sleeve shown is also 100% mono!

Try sonically b4 you buy!
