    Heat Wave

    Born in Eufaula, Alabama, in 1941, the 3rd of 11 children, Martha Reeves moved with her family to the Motor City - Detroit, Michigan - when she was less than a year old. Like so many other R&B and soul singers of the era, she was raised on gospel and started singing in the church, but before long the secular interests of doo-wop and R&B won out and by the age of 18 she had joined her first vocal group, The Fascinations. In 1960 she joined the group that would eventually become Martha & The Vandellas (named after Martha's childhood street, Van Dyke, and her singing idol, Della Reese). After filling in on backup vocals for Marvin Gaye's classic "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", the group signed their own recording contract with Motown's Gordy label. By the following year, they were having massive chart success with this album's title track, "Heat Wave", and "Quicksand" (both of which were written by the new songwriting trio of Holland-Dozier-Holland). Compiling many of those early hit singles in 1963, Heat Wave is a quintessential piece of the Motown Sound that every record collection needs.

    Four Tops

    The Four Tops were among a number of groups, including The Miracles, The Marvelettes, Martha and the Vandellas, The Temptations, and The Supremes, who established the Motown Sound around the world during the 1960s. The group was the main male vocal group for the highly successful songwriting and production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland, who crafted a stream of hit singles on Motown. Their immaculate four-part harmonies gave voice to many of Motown's most enduring songs.

    Their self-titled album (1964) included the singles Baby I Need Your Loving and Ask the Lonely. You'd be hard pressed to find two better singles on a debut album, both being the cornerstones of Four Tops. A debut to remember.

    The Mamas And The Papas

    In their brief but eventful reign as one of America's hippest and most popular recording acts, the Mamas and the Papas-Denny Doherty, Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips and main songwriter/sonic architect John Phillips-created a uniquely captivating brand of smart, harmony-laden pop that was consistently inventive and innovative, yet effortlessly commercial.

    Although their hitmaking heyday lasted less than three years, these trendsetting California dreamers left a long-lasting mark on popular music, releasing a series of hit singles and classic albums that remain deeply ingrained in the pop-culture consciousness four and a half decades later. Now, Sundazed Music brings the Mamas and the Papas' much-requested, long-out-of-print second and third albums back to the marketplace in LP editions that preserve their timeless brilliance for the ages.

    These beloved '60s classics have been lovingly restored by Sundazed Music to their original glory, on high-quality vinyl LP. This definitive edition faithfully reproduces the album's iconic original cover art, while careful mastering from the original reels guarantees that it's never sounded better than it does here.

    Released in the fall of 1966, the Mamas and the Papas' self-titled second album remains one of the foursome's most enduring and popular releases, and contains some of the most appealing and accomplished music that they ever produced. Along with the infectious hits "I Saw Her Again" and "Words of Love," The Mamas and the Papas features such John Phillips-penned favorites as "No Salt On Her Tail," "Dancing Bear" and "Trip, Stumble and Fall," along with distinctive covers of Martha and the Vandellas' Motown anthem "Dancing in the Street" and the Rodgers and Hart standard "My Heart Stood Still."

    Exchange Sessions Vol.1

    Kieran you probably know from his more popular moniker of Four Tet or from his time with the seminal post-rock instrumentalists Fridge. Reid was the drummer on Martha & The Vandellas' Dancing In The Streets. Along with his Motown sessions, he's recorded and performed with James Brown, Miles Davis, and Fela Kuti, and he had a lengthy tenure in the Sun Ra Arkestra, along with putting out his own solo records. This meeting of rhythmic minds between Hebden and Reid is a free jazz odyssey sure to melt minds as much as knock down barriers. It's quite a compelling listen with melodic music textures and steady rhythms. The whole affair breathes and swings, daddy-o. Look for Volume II in the spring.

    Willis (Out Of Stock)

    And so the Pietasters serve up their most varied album yet, quite a feat for a band that had always prided itself on its unique mix of stylings. Willis' inspired blend of styles boasts some of the group's most awesome arrangements to date -- garage punk ("Crazy Monkey Woman"); ska-fueled, Brit-beat-flavored, funk-fired soul ("Stone Feeling"); reggae-fied, surf-side; C&W-soul ("Higher"); calypso-fied Two Tone (a new cut of their vintage "Without You"); pop/rock goes ska ("Ocean"); flashy, brass-fueled R&B ("Bitter"), and that's not even taking into account the covers. There's a bright and bubbly version of the Outsiders' 1966 hit "Time Won't Let Me," flush with organ and brash with brass, but with the starring role falling to Tom Goodin's Chuck Berry-styled guitar solo; a pumping version of Martha & the Vandellas' "Quicksand," inspired by the Jam's cover of that group's "Heat Wave," and a storming take on James Easter's "New Breed." But for all the eclecticism, there are also some straight-out skankers, like the frenetic "Fat Sack," and the anthemic "Out All Night" -- the latter destined to become the band's theme song. The slower paced "Moment," awash in dizzying horns and sharp staccato beats, is also a blast from the past, albeit the band's own, the sole, heady, reminder of their previous styling. As surprising as the shift in musical sound is, equally amazing is Jackson's vocals, reaching never-before-attained heights of power. Every track on this set is memorable, the melodies irresistible, the hooks inescapable, the musicianship flawless as always, and the arrangements stunning, with the production highlighting each and every ounce of the band's strength. Phenomenal. ~ Jo-Ann Greene
