Teena Marie: Lady T (Motown STML12130)

Paul Sexton, Record Mirror, 28 June 1980

IT MUST be a while since Motown Records had two singles in the same Top 10, but Jermaine Jackson and Teena Marie cracked it for them the other week. You had the feeling that JJ should have done it a long time ago, but Teena has only been challenging for about a year. 12 months to get behind the groove isn't very long in record terms.
