Format: Audio CD
This generous two disc set includes all the hits, as well as a few British B-side favorites like 'Third Finger Left Hand' and 'Forget Me Not' among others.

Nobody could come close to Martha on hits like 'Heatwave', 'Dancing In The Street' and 'Nowhere To Run'. These recordings define the era and the Motown sound so well.

It is no secret that the group were overlooked towards the end of their stay at Motown. Nevertheless, many of the recordings are still noteworthy, including three tracks here from the excellent 'Black Magic' album.

This set ends with an unreleased bonus track, then four tracks from Martha's solo career. Two of which are from her lost classic album on MCA, one from her album on Arista and one from her disco slanted work at Fantasy.

Format: Audio CD
It took 5 years before Martha & the Vandellas made their first single for Gordy and this had appeared briefly on a sub label called Mel-O-Dy.
In 1961 they had cut a single for a Chess sub called Checkmate under the name of the Del Phis called I'll let you know,next trying Tamla Motown where Martha became a secretary and the group were used on bvs for a single by Sandra Edwards who would later join the Elgins.For this they were known as the Vells and next did bvs for Marvin Gaye's Stubborn kind of fellow.After a first single which was a remake of their Checkmate single they were invited by Berry Gordy to change their name so they became the Vandellas this being the name on the Gaye single.
By the time they cut a single under their new name they had become Martha & the Vandellas by which name they operated under till 1967 when Martha's surname was added so it fell into line with Diana Ross & the Supremes and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.
The hit singles began with the 2nd Gordy single Come and get these memories-this sold well enough as to warrant an album.
After that the hits kept on coming all of which are on this CD which ran into the 70s when the inevitable solo career began but Martha & the Vandellas would make appearances at Golden Oldies shows like Wolfman Jack's Church Street ones

Format: Audio CD
Before I heard this album I only knew of 3 Martha and the Vandellas songs, Heatwave, Nowhere to Run, and ofcourse Dancing in the Street. I liked these songs so much that I felt I needed to buy this album, and 40+ songs for just over a fiver, what have I got to lose? Turns out I gained ALOT!

This is an amazing album with brilliant song writing, harmonising vocals and the right attitude in the music.

I feel the second CD is the better of the two, but the first CD is still fantastic. The second CD has many of my favourites such as Jimmy Mack, In and Out of My Life (a beautifully soft, but mildly funky song) and of course Martha's solo work like Power of Love and Wild Night which was used on the film soundtrack of Thelma and Louise, which always puts me in a good mood when I listen to it.

This is a must for anybody into Motown, or even anybody who heard 'Dancing in the Street' and liked it.

Martha Reeves & The Vandellas one of many female groups from Motowns formative and golden periods. Gold is a very good title for this classic collection. There are lots of gems included here such as Dancing in the street, and Heatwave. Martha really was taken a litle bit for granted at Motown. She was massively under-rated as a vocalist but you can check this out yourselves because this is a very generous priced c d. Magical Motown Memories that make you feel you are back circa 1964 for sure!

The title of this double cd speaks for itself "Gold" all I can add to that is that it could have been titled "Pure Gold" with every track being a Gem.
