I Want A Guy/ Never Again by The Supremes
Label: Tamla 54038 Year: 1962
Condition: M- $170.00
I Want A Guy/ Never AgainHere's a rare copy of the Supremes' very first single, one of only two that were released on Berry Gordy's Tamla label. After their second single ("Buttered Popcorn"), which, like this one, failed to make a dent in the pop charts, all of the Supremes singles appeared only on Gordy's newer Motown label. This copy is from the rarer first pressing, which has the horizontal lines at the top, and an earlier design for the Tamla logo. (Apparently, "I Want A Guy" was inadvertently released on the Motown label at some point, but was quickly withdrawn. That single fetches well over $1,000 because of its rarity.) Their first single finds The Supremes firmly in the musical territory established by girl groups like the Shirelles and the Chantels.

Note: This single is from a large collection we've purchased whose records typically have mint or near-mint audio and near-mint vinyl. The labels are near mint as well, but the owner had a habit of writing a date in small print on the B side label. In this case, the small date is on the A side label (see scan), which also has a drill-hole. The audio is near mint overall, but you will hear a bit of surface noise in the lead-in and trail-off grooves.
