The label was active in Motown history in the 1970s. I think i was intended as a rock division. But I'm interested in the ears 1978 to 1979 when Natural Resources was used as a reissue label.
There were several compilations on NR with titles like Great Interpretations and Motown Show Tunes, etc.
Where Did Our Love Go
In A Mellow Mood
Silk 'N' Soul
I'll Try Something New
Soulful Moods of Marvin Gaye
Were just eight of the classic motown LPs to get reissued on Natural Resources from 1978 to 1979.
Were all of the LPs issued in Stereo?
Why was natural Resources turned into a reissue label?

Everything released in the 70s as far as I've seen was stereo. No one was cutting mono records by that time.

I was lucky enough to buy that "FROM THE VAULTS" lp for $2.00 ,USD ,on one of my "adventures" ,here in the Village ,N.Y.C. A nice lp. I haven't had the chance to research if any of those tracks have been released elsewhere ,like on the Cellarfull or other comps or as bonus tracks on any other releases. By chance Grapevine ,have you??

...I'm pretty sure over half have come out on official Motown CDs ...and the rest on Marginal boots...
...I was hoping that the good people at Motown ...on either side of the pond ...would have released those vaulted tracks ...together with these ...from the 1986 LP ...Never-Before-Released Masters From Motown's Brightest Stars The '60s...

"Mind Over Matter" by The Temptations HAD been released before (on vinyl)- on Mel-O-Dy 105 (credited to The Pirates (as The Temptations of "Barbara" fame had sued Motown, claiming they had the name first). Berry Gordy also used that slightly limiting situation, to have 2 Temptations' records not "compete" with each other.

Mary Wells' "The Day Will Come" was on her 2nd album, so I never understood why it was on this LP.
