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.
