Martha & the Vandellas were nearing the end when this LP was issued. They reformed in 1971 with Martha 's sister Lois Reeves and Sandra Tilley, and made one last attempt at pop and soul glory. But while Reeves still had the old power, drive, and fire, they weren't getting the inspiring songs or magnificent lyrics of their timeless 1960s hits. Instead, the best tunes, such as "Bless You," "No One There," or "Your Love Makes It Worthwhile," seemed like second-level material that would have simply filled out earlier releases.
