Martha & The Vandellas were the Supremes’ tougher, more grounded counterpart. With her cheeky, fervent vocals, Martha Reeves led the group in a string of dance anthems that remain irresistible to this day. They recorded throughout the 1960s for Motown’s Gordy label, charting a bunch of soul hits, and became one of the company’s most successful touring acts. Martha’s voice bore the righteous fervor of gospel and the flinty edginess of rhythm & blues, which, combined with Motown’s stylized pop-soul approach, made for a compelling package.

This essential CD set compiles a selection of Martha & The Vandellas’ charting-singles from the peak of their career. The original recordings presented here have been brilliantly remastered to achieve the best sound quality.
