Martha Reeves Goes Solo

Phil Symes, Disc, 8 July 1972

MARTHA REEVES is going solo. After 10 years fronting one of Motown's most successful groups, Martha and the Vandellas, Miss Reeves is stepping out alone. It's not entirely her own decision. It just happened that one of the Vandellas wanted to leave to get married, so Martha decided rather than search for a replacement, to go out alone.
