“Golden World” records was a Detroit record label owned by Ed Wingate and Joanne Jackson Bratton. The label operated from 1962 to 1968. Irving Biegel had been Manager at the label after spending 4 years at “Motown” records. In 1966 he moved to “Palmer” records. The label and its subsidiaries were purchased by Berry Gordy in 1968, and folded into Gordy’s Motown Record Corporation. The Golden World studio became Motown’s “Studio B”, working in support of the original Motown recording studio (Studio A) at Hitsville USA. Before its purchase by Gordy, the studio’s recordings often included moonlighting Motown back-up musicians, including James Jamerson bass and George Mcgregor who was the studio percussionist. Barbara recorded some great Northern Soul sides for “Sidra” records, “Capitol” records, and the aforementioned “Golden World” records, as well as some superb, previously unissued sides that have come to light in recent years. This superb Northern side from 1965 is in EXCELLENT condition – Worth checking out the Soulful flip “Can’t Stop Loving You Baby”
