French recording star Richard Anthony was one of the first European artists to release a Motown single, the label paying EMI for the rights to one of his already-issued English-language Top 20 hits from his home market in 1965. Although the single was not a success and no more was heard of Anthony in Motown circles, the move showed Motown’s increased commercial clout – the company had outbid several competitors for the chance to release material by the highly-rated Anthony in the US.
