    Martha and the Vandellas - My Baby Loves Me


  2. #2
    Back in '66 I was not keen on this. I was just a kid and to my young ears it sounded a bit old fashioned & grown up. Now of course I adore and it's one of the few songs that Martha can still sing, properly!

    a Motown harpist named Carol said she originated the tune or was playing it in the studio when Mickey Stevenson heard it. She said parts of My Baby Loves Me is based on some classical tune she knew. Stevenson liked it and the rest is history.
    I thought the song and its B-side should have been included on the Watchout LP.

    ^ Interesting. Yeah why didn't it make that album?

    I think that a 'Greatest Hits' album released in '66 got in the way as it appeared on there. The Marvelettes were another act who had several singles appear on 'Greatest Hits' but never on a regular studio album.

    My all time favourite by Martha and The Vandellas. A wonderful performance (and the Four Tops too).

    You of course mean Martha & The Andantes with the Four Tops. The Vandellas had gone shopping!
