    Very good vocals by Martha. This recording, however, sounds to me like a Martha solo effort rather than a Martha & The Vandellas or even a Martha & The Andantes work. The instrumentation barely...

    Why wasn’t this Four Tops song a big hit?

    I’ve been listening to the alternate (strings) version of “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever.” It’s a great song, in my opinion, especially in this mix. But the recording didn’t do too well on the...

    Jean, Mary and Cindy on the Ed Sullivan show doing the medley "Nothing Can Stop Us Now/ If They Could See Me Now.” Fantastic!

    It seems to me that whichever version I listen to, I find the backing singers sounding anonymous and murky; a lost opportunity to have made this a very good recording.

    Even though it is not a photograph, the album cover of “High Energy” has always been a favorite of mine and exudes everything the Supremes were.

    Ashford & Simpson question

    If this question has been asked before I apologize for being redundant.

    Are there Motown recordings in the can of A&S singing any of the Marvin & Tammi duets? Demos perhaps? If so, might they...

    I wonder how Martha and the Vandellas would have done on “Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart?” It’s got the power and drive of “Heat Wave” and “Quicksand."

    I’ve always thought that this recording must have been done in L.A. where Wilson and the producers were based, rather than Detroit. The track doesn’t sound like the Funk Brothers to me. Does anyone...

    While “7 Rooms” made it #10 on Billboard R&B and #14 on Billboard Pop, “I’ll Turn” hit #50 and #76 respectively. “I’ll Turn” should have been released as an A-side.
