Marvin Gay

This is one of many Motown mysteries! These 45's have been placed here as this is where many collectors feel they belong -------- but please read on.

Tamla - Masquerade (Is Over) / Witchcraft - 1962 no selection number issued, 45 states "single not available extracted from album (TM-221)".

Tamla 54062 - Masquerade (Is Over) / Witchcraft - 1962 it seems Motown skipped over this number altogether. Many collectors feel that this 45 was scheduled to be released on this selection number, but this has been disproven since a found promo un-numbered disc has a "stripes" label (the "stripes" label design had long been discontinued around selection number 54044 - The Miracles -Broken Hearted / Mighty Good Loving - 1961 release, almost two years earlier).
