I loved all of it , especially Martha Reeves and the Vandellas doing 'Heatwave' on the Jools Holland show

Sorry I was trying to be sarchastic re Martha , the Vandellas were still good , although they were more than likely aided and abeted by out of shot backing singers !!

Still good and it sent a sense of nostalgia about the room that SWMBO didn't understand!!

Just to let you know, theres a "Legends of Motown" show coming to The Arena, June 24.

Martha and the Vandellas, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, Jr Walkers All Stars, (note it doesnt say and!) The Commodores, and more.

I stayed up to watch the Motown thing last night, after The New Avengers, it was good. If you have the dvd of the made for American tv, "The Temptations Story," it gives an insight to the workings of the label, and its artists.

Its also sad to see how David Ruffin went, leading to his untimely premature death.
