So, how cool is this? This is a video of Martha Reeves and The Vandellas AND Dusty Springfield for a live performance of Wishin' And Hopin' recorded at the Rediffusion TV studios in London on 18 March 1965!

Now this is Motown meets Mod in true retro fashion!!!!

Now here's another one with Dusty and Martha. Who knew Dusty had so much soul in her voice??? But wait, there's more - Diana Ross and the Supremes sing Stop, In the Name of Love, the Temptations singing My Girl and Martha comes back with Dancing In The Streets! Hows this for Retro Motown? Wow, those English really knew how to rock out and get down in those days.

  1. I love stuff like this. One time I posted Little Eva singing Locomotion. One of my favorite posts.

  2. That was great! Martha Reeves and the Vandellas have always been my favorite Motown female group. Wonderful to see her with Dusty.

  3. I am discovering so many new OSFers this morning.

    Great choices.

    I was surprised that one who has had my ear this week is on Motown.

    Traveling down the road of lives.

    Wishing you well.

  5. Wow--what fabulous videos! I'm rockin' out, tappin' my feet as I'm typin'!

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed this mini-concert.

  7. Both of those clips were awesome! If it isn't available already,someone should release "The Sounds of Motown" on DVD.

    For anyone not familiar with the soulfulness of Dusty Springfield, they should check out her 1969 album "Dusty In Memphis". It lives up to the acclaim that it's gotten over the last several years.
