Best Answer

Yes, Though question is rough.

The Tamla label started in Jan 1959 and the Motown label started in Sep 1959

12 songs were recorded on Tamla with "MONEY" being the most popular (also released nationally on ANNA label) Anna Gordy was Berry Gordy's sister.

1 song was released on the Motown label "Bad Girl" G-1 by "The Miracles" this title was transferred from the Tamla label TLX2207 that had a strange numbering convention and the only recording starting with TLX series. Both recorded/released SEP 1959.

Motown is a record label, not a group. Motown is now Motown Universal, but I suspect you're asking about Motown Classic. Motown Classic produced artists such as The Temptations, The Jackson 5, Rick James, Gladys Knight and the Pipps, Martha and the Vandellas, Aretha Franklin, The Four tops, The Commodores, etc. In the event that you do not know who these artists are, I suggest going to the Classic Motown website, and then downloading at least 3 tracks from each artist.

However said, "que sera, sera" by Doris Day must be stuck in 60's musicals!

Look up: Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, War, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commadores, (when Lional Ritchie was still with them), Donna Summer, Chaka Khan, Minnie Ripperton. This is too long a list to begin to cover. (Please tell me you were kidding)?

Motown music is music that originated when the industry began the role of racial integration with music. The majority of Motown music is Blues based but Motown is actually a recording label and they produce a wide range of music varieties.
