There were two copies of that song. The one that I have had the Tamla box label and the video that MotownMaster has had the original donut-globe Tamla label. Those were the two copies that they could find on some pressings.

Stevie really out did himself on this one. Michael Jackson recorded the song as well,but I never cared for his version.
Michael Jackson did that version of that Stevie Wonder song from the LP "Ben" back in 1972.
MotownMaster was commented about the song with the original label:
"ITS NOT A DONUT ITS A RECORD AND GLOBE SIDE BY SIDE why the hell would it be a donut? its a RECORD! and most of my tamla singles are the record and globe up until Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" which is Tamla 54176"
I know that. The Tamla side-by-side globe & record was used from 1962 until 1968, if I was mistaken, the record on the left side of the logo looks like a donut, but MotownMaster was wrong on that, it was a record, not a donut. I have the 45 of "Beechwood 4-5789" with the side-by-side globe and record. But MotownMaster was suggested that "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" was the last single to used the globe & record on the Tamla label. I have the 45 of that single with a box label. MotownMaster loves the original Tamla globe & record on every 45 RPM ever made.
