Motown's publishing arm was called "Jobete" and it appears that at least for the first ten years or so, if you wanted to be a Motown writer
you used their publishing company. The publisher splits the royalties with the songwriter, so it was quite a windfall for Motown. These
albums released in the mid '70s, featured medleys taken from the original recorded versions. For example, the back cover of the Norman
Whitfield album (see below) shows that track one (of five) on side one is a medley of "Ain't No Sun Since You've Been Gone," Ain't Too Proud
To Beg," "Ball Of Confusion," "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep," and "Cloud Nine." All of these were recorded by the Temptations but many of the other
tracks vary the artists. These albums were promoting the songs - not the artists. Jobete's plan was to try and get the songs placed in movies,
commercials or recorded by other artists.
