Sugar n' Spice

by: Martha & the Vandellas

Here Motown holds a fire sale in an effort to keep the Vandellas as a viable commercial force in the pop marketplace. The closest thing resembling a hit here is "Taking My Love (And Leaving Me)," a mild soul hit that missed making the pop charts. Since the exodus of Holland-Dozier-Holland, Reeves had to struggle to get good material. And though she is struggling with not too distinctive material from second-tier songwriters, she does pull it off respectfully. "You're the Loser Now" is one of her better later efforts. ~ John Lowe
