The Motown 7s Box


Original Release: 1963-65


The Stateside label was originally to be called either Javelin or Discus records, but these names were ultimately rejected by EMI executives and the name Stateside was finally settled on in late 1962 . Intended as a vehicle on which to release American popular music, the “S” in Stateside was designed as an American dollar sign. Between 1963 and early 1965, EMI Records released forty five Motown singles and four extended play collections on their Stateside label , all licensed in from Berry Gordy’s burgeoning Detroit assembly line of R&B hits.

The Stateside label is now showcased in this vinyl box set highlighting this vibrant era for American R&B. Fourteen tracks from seven artists have been selected which illustrate the magic that was starting to be created at the Hitsville studios in the Motor City.

Lovingly restored on seven collector’s Stateside singles and superbly presented in a limited edition boxed set (2150 copies), these are some of the songs that around fifty years ago started off the world-wide love affair with the artists who represented Motown: “The Sound of Young America”.
