Review

{$Martha Reeves} certainly has come a long way since her days as an A&R assistant at {@Motown}, crafting hit after hit and helping mold the powerhouse {@Motown} sound of the '60s. But what's surprising is that there's really not that many greatest-hits compilations that are both thorough and readily available to discover just how deep the {$Reeves & the Vandellas} catalog truly is. Thankfully, {^Gold} corrects that and then some. Under the steady hand of {@Motown} superhero and {@Universal} executive {$Harry Weinger}, the {@Motown} catalog, which has been long weathered over time, is starting to shine impeccably, and this two-disc, 42-song offering is concrete proof. {^Gold} works its way through their career in chronological fashion, but wastes no time in offering the best of the bunch with {&"Heatwave"} as the third track. All of the other biggest hits are here and then some, and kudos for the inclusion of {&"There He Is (At My Door),"} the B-side to their most well-known single, {&"Dancing in the Street,"} as well as the {$Frank Wilson}-penned {&"It's Easy to Fall in Love (With a Guy Like You),"} originally found on the excellent {^Cellarful of Motown!} anthology. The second disc wanes on the {@Motown} stompers a bit, but there's plenty of soulful delights to appease even the most stringent of connoisseurs. Also a pleasant surprise is the inclusion of later '70s material recorded post-{@Motown} at {@Arista} and {@MCA}, including {$Martha}'s solo works as well as her cover of {$Van Morrison}'s {&"Wild Night."} Overall, it's a great starting point for the casual listener and probably the most reasonable and thorough anthology on the market and most likely one of the best compilations for {$the Vandellas} that will ever be assembled. ~ Rob Theakston, Rovi
