Martha Reeves & the Vandellas: Martha's 10 years at Motown...

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, August 1970

THIS YEAR is the tenth anniversary of Motown Records and to celebrate it in London, Martha Reeves and her Vandellas spent one week meeting the British press in an effort to promote their current re-issued single, 'Jimmy Mack'.

The highlight of the anniversary week was an evening on the Thames with Martha, Lois and Sandy getting together with the British journalists and BBC producers.
