Black Magic is a soul album released by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas on the Gordy (Motown) label in 1972. It is the last studio album issued by the group after ten years with the label. The album is significant for featuring the group's biggest hit of the decade with the Jackson 5-esque "Bless You". The track returned the Vandellas to chart success briefly in the US reaching number fifty-three pop, number twenty-nine R&B and reaching number thirty-three on the UK pop singles chart. It was also a top twenty hit in Canada reaching number sixteen on the chart, and a top ten.

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.
