Description

In 1962, a talent scout spotted young Martha Reeves singing at the old 20 Grand Club in Detroit and brought her to the attention of Motown Records. Over the next few years, she recorded a legendary string of hits including "Heat Wave," "Quicksand," "Nowhere to Run," "Jimmy Mack" and the classic "Dancing In The Streets" - performed here, on her 70th Birthday, as the Grand Finale to this year's All Star Revue.
