J5 and Dancing Machine - what happened?

seems like the J5 started to struggle with their songs in late 71. After Never Can Say Goodbye, the majority of the following songs only did (relatively) so-so on the charts. Top 40 yes, but mostly in the lower 20s.

And then they rebounded with Dancing Machine - a great track and really helped update their sound and style.

So what happened after that? why did the following singles fall off again?

Rhodes, Chalmers and Rhodes

I know that this is not Motown related per se, but since Motown released some of Al Green's material on CD, I hope this post gets a pass.

The background vocal done by Rhodes, Chalmers and Rhodes were, in my opinion, absolutely fantastic. For the longest time, I assumed they were black. I was taken by surprise that they are, indeed, white.

I'd like to see a piece done about them.

The orginal Martha & The Vandellas reunite!

From the Detroit Free Press, the original Martha & The Vandellas reunite at the dedication of the 'Dancing In The Street' park near the Motown museum.
It is so good to see the originals back together again!:
