MARTHA & STEVIE

What I loved about these shots, was their youth and vigor. He’s in little boy shorts – and she’s holding his mike like he’s her little brother. He might as well have been.

The Motown Family got that name by their closeness. If you were Motown – you were family. When The Berry Gordy Express chugged past – believe me, you jumped on it and asked “Where are we going?” later. You did whatever they wanted you to do at first, just to keep on that ride. And eventually found the place you were meant to be. There’s not one of us who wouldn’t go back there today in a hot second.
