‘Ready for a Brand New Beat’

‘Ready for a Brand New Beat’ | Rock and Roll | Scoop.it

In the summer of 1964, 22-year-old Martha Reeves took a bus from her home in Detroit’s Eastside neighborhood, where she lived with her parents and 10 siblings, to a little house on Westside’s Grand Boulevard with the big sign proclaiming “Hitsville, U.S.A.”

It was the home of Berry Gordy’s five-year-old Motown Records, for whom the singer and her group, The Vandellas, had already recorded three songs that had done well. The song she would record that day, in two takes, would do far better than well; it would change not just the singer’s history, but that of American popular music.

Basil Sanders's curator insight, May 29, 2013 8:58 AM

Pink Floyd endures as one of the more soulful bands of the ‘70s. For this we can thank Roger Waters, whose development as a lyricist is responsible for a body of work that holds its own against anyone else’s. With the possible exception of Peter Gabriel (with and without Genesis) no songwriter composed more sensitive yet compelling statements concerning the human condition.
