“Jimmy Mack,” from Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, was probably one of their most popular hits during their very, very short career together. The song was from the album called “Watchout!” It was released in 1966, under the Gordy label, a subdivision of Motown. It’s a simple and easy song to sing and dance to. It’s about a girl who misses her man, and expresses how much she wants him to come home and see her. Listening to these lyrics, reminds me a lot of those military songs that were popular during the 50s and 60s. The song peaked at number 10 on the Hot 100 Chart, and number 1 on the R&B Charts in 1967. This had to have been a really, REALLY popular song, because I wasn’t even born yet when this song was released, yet I still remembered hearing it on the radio a lot. There’s only one other song from this album I like, and that is called “I’m Ready For Love.” For some reason, the beat of this song reminds me of Diana Ross’s “Can’t Hurry Love.” But then again, Motown music had it’s own distinct sound.
