We and all dealers in collectable goods use the word "rare"so very often. That word becomes meaningless when you list records of this calibre from far off destinations, very few of us will ever witness.

This 1976 Los Angeles Motown recording, was pressed on GORDY with the a-side being "I'm In Love". The promo copy had "I'm In Love" on both sides. The stock copy is one rarest 45's within the whole Motown catalogue, the stock copy sold nothing and is insanely RARE!

But it's rarity pales in comparison to this colourful 1977 Tamla Motown 45 from Equador; where someone at the Ecuadorian record company quickly worked out "Don't Fan The Flame" was by far the better side.

For decades now this elusive recording has been long admired, glowingly talked about in the halls of Northern Soul gathering. Few own a release copy on USA Gordy, few even less collectors even knew it came out in Equador. (I certainly didn't)
So, here it is an insanely obscure 43 year old, pressed in high quality vinyl, top fidelity and reproduction. Presented on what has to be one of MOtown's most colourful incarmations, snug in it's original plythene company sleeve.

So now listen to a "lost" Motown treasure that few have ever heard, because so vey few own a copy. This is top-drawer, this is beyond rare and salivatingly good..

Expect competition for this beauty.
