"Heat Wave" was the second album released by American Motown girl group Martha and the Vandellas. Released in 1963 on Motown's Gordy imprint , intended to capitialize on the success of the title track, which rose to number four on the pop singles chart and number-one on the R&B singles chart. The album was produced by the likes of Holland-Dozier-Holland (who composed the group's first five hit singles) and Mickey Stevenson. This was the last album to feature original Vandella Annette Beard.
 

The material mainly featured remakes of popular pop songs of the period such as "Then He Kissed Me" and "My Boyfriend's Back," as well as mainstream standards like "More" (the theme song from the 1962 film Mondo Cane), "Danke Schoen", and "If I Had a Hammer." [1] This album only charted at 125 on the U.S. albums chart.

Тэги подправил на Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, а то last.fm их различает.

Dance Party is a 1965 album released by American Motown and soul girl group Martha and the Vandellas on the Gordy (Motown) label. The album was the group's third and much like The Miracles' Mickey's Monkey album mainly consisted of dance tunes. Among the singles featured on the album include their 1964 landmark single, "Dancing in the Street", their follow-up smash, "Nowhere to Run", the hit, "Wild One", and the famous b-side, "Motoring". The album was mostly produced by William "Mickey" Stevenson with several nods from Holland-Dozier-Holland.

The album was re-released in 2009 by SpeakersCornerRecords for the 50th anniversary of Motown.

 Совсем немного молодого Стиви, исполняющего разные джазовые хиты.

With A Song In My Heart is a 1963 album by Stevie Wonder on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album was the first to drop Wonder's Little nickname as the 13-year-old singer went the same route of his label mate Marvin Gaye and covered a set of standards. Like Gaye and other Motown acts, label president Berry Gordy wanted all of his artists to be established on a crossover basis. The album did not immediately spell success for Wonder on the adult contemporary set. Veteran jazz arranger Ernie Wilkins arranged and conducted the album.

 В продолжение High Energy.

Steeped in Berry Gordy's Motown tradition and touted as the next Supremes, High Inergy had already tasted the top of the charts with their 1977 debut, which spawned the number two hit single "You Can't Turn Me Off (In the Middle of Turning Me On)." Clearly, Steppin' Out was designed to reach even higher. Read more...Collapse )

Единственный альбом The Monitors, кавер-версия "Greetings (This is Uncle Sam)", наверно, самая известная их песня.

Greetings! We're The Monitors
is the debut album by The Monitors, released in 1968. It is comprised of material that the group recorded from the 3 year span of 1966 to 1968.

[Current Music |Rose Banks - You're Much Too Beautiful for Words | Powered by Last.fm]

Если вам не знакомо имя Rose Banks, то это нормально, ведь это псевдоним Rose Stewart. Если вам и это имя ничего не говорит, то может вам напомнит имя ее брата - Sly Stewart. Нет? Так это же фронтмен великой группы Sly & The Family Stone, в которой Роуз тоже выступала, пока ее не вытиснул ее же муж Бубба Бэнкс. Роуз выпустила этот альбом и один сингл на Мотауне и закончила свою профессиональную карьеру исполнителя и зря!

[Current Music |Melanie Fiona - Johnny | Powered by Last.fm]

Лейбл, верней то, что от него осталось, не стоит на месте и продолжает изредка выпускать хороший не попсовый р'н'б, душевный, как в старые времена. 

"Please Don't Go (Cry Baby)", вот прямо back to 60s! Сэмпл взят у Марты Ривз и ее группы.

The Bridge is the debut album of Canadian R&B/soul singer-songwriter Melanie Fiona, released under the SRC/Universal Motown label in June 2009. It was released in the United States on November 10, 2009. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and at #57 on the Billboard 200 chart, where it has since peaked at #27. The album received generally favorable reviews.
