Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Vinyl Record Albums

Martha Rose Reeves (born July 18, 1941), was the lead singer of the American Motown Records group Martha & the Vandellas. She was born in Eufaula, Alabama to Elijah Joshua and Ruby Lee Gilmore Reeves. The Reeves family moved to Detroit, Michigan right after Martha's birth. Reeves was brought up in church, for her grandfather Elijah Reeves was a minister at Detroit's Metropolitan Church. As a teenager, Reeves became a secretary at Motown, and founded a singing group called the Del-Phis. The Del-Phis became Motown recording artists --rechristended "The Vandellas" -- after Mary Wells didn't show for a recording session and Reeves was pulled in to record the song intended for Wells. Martha & the Vandellas recorded several successful hits during the mi-1960s, including "(Love is Like a) Heat Wave", "Nowhere to Run", and "Dancing in the Street", and also backed Marvin Gaye on his earliest hits: "Stubborn Kind of Fellow," "Pride & Joy" and "Hitch Hike." The Vandellas suffered a setback in 1968 when Reeves, by that time addicted to drugs, suffered a nervous breakdown after a bad acid trip. By 1972, the Vandellas broke up and Reeves left Motown, which moved that same year from Detroit to Los Angeles.
Reeves released albums on MCA, Arista, and Fantasy. Although her star-studded 1974 solo debut was the most expensive album recorded to that date, it and Reeves' other solo albums failed to draw and audience, and by the 1980s Reeves had withdrawn from recording and become a born-again Christian. In the early 1990s, she and other Motown veterans recorded updated versions of their hits and new material for London-based MotorCity Records.
