Today's WELCOME TO THE SHOWROOM:
"MOTOWN IN ITALY PART II"
JACKSON 5 "SERIE COLLEGE" LP
ITALY TAMLA MOTOWN/RI-FI RECORDS
Lately, I was clearly "italian-inspired" with my Showroom purchases. And here you can see a first example of the hunt I made in my country. This is an italian-only collection released in 1975 - part of a series named "Serie College" (featuring some other releases by several artists) - officially licensed by Motown and distributed by Ri-Fi records (Milan). The record contains 10 tracks randomly chosen fron the Jackson 5 hits-catalogue, and comes with a picture of the Jackson 5 singing and dancing already used for the "Get it together" album picture sleeve, obviously, here with a total different graphic style. Take a look at the particular multi-colour rounded label...you'll see it again in many earlier italian presses.
