Berry Gordy Jr.(above) borrowed $800 from his family and started
his own record label, called TAMLA. When a third release by the
Miracles was issued, a second label was formed, called Motown.

The first release on the TAMLA label was “COME TO ME” by Marv 
Johnson. The song was later released on the United Artists label.
