LIMITED EDITION ON 150GR High-Quality Virgin Vinyl
ON THE 62nd ANNIVERSARY OF MOTOWN RECORDS
2nd OFFICIAL AMERICAN LP REISSUE AND THE 1st IN MORE THAN 40 YEARS!
This was the fourth studio album and fifth album overall by Martha and the Vandellas, led by Martha Reeves, one of the most underrated female soul singers ever. It includes the top 10 hit singles, “I’m Ready for Love” and “Jimmy Mack”, as well as the ballad “What Am I Gonna Do Without Your Love?”, and was recorded in 1966 by a cross-section of Motown’s leading producers, including Holland/Dozier/Holland, William “Smokey” Robinson and William “Mickey” Stevenson. This was one of the last albums by the band to feature songs from Holland, Dozier, Holland, who the following year would leave Motown, as would William “Mickey” Stevenson, the man who helped put the group on the musical map.
