Description

Motown collectors, archaeologists, historians and archivists... let's get serious.

Presented to Shelia & Clive Stone October 9th. 1964 when Clive and his wife represented Dave Godin and the British Tamla Motown Appreciation Society on a visit to Hitsville Detroit.

Front picture is signed by all three Supremes Mary (Wilson), Diana (Ross), Flora (Florence Ballard).

Then on the reverse adding unparalleled Motown authenticity are three bonus signatures.
1. Best wishes from Margaret Phelps, Esther Edwards secretary and president of the Hitsville International fan club; Dave Godin's direct contact with Motown.Helping to organize this inaugural trip to Hitsville, for Clive and Shelia Stone.
2. "Dear Clive We Love You So Much - Mrs Esther Edwards, Berry Gordy's elder sister and creator of the Motown Museum
3. Lastly and most important is "Shelia & Clive Thanks For Everything" Berry Gordy X

This is a two fold auction as it comes with a MINT unplayed 1964 MINT Motown Appreciation Society 45 still housed in it's original blue birth sleeve.

This has to be the most important Motown validation to Dave Godin's work at raising awareness of the Motown Sound in the UK. This picture and those rare signatures validate the huge gratitude given by Motown to this small band of MOtown pioneers in England.

Just holding this treasure, makes me tingle.. an unsurpassed antiquity of this unique Motown - Brit alliance .
