There is a section entitled: Personnel changes and Reeves' illness. Yet unless I'm missing something, this article never mentions that Martha Reeves got ill. Her return is mentioned in the section that follows this one. Jwhester (talk) 16:06, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
They actually released "Honey Chile" late in 1967 but I figured it would still be correct if I said "By 1968". Mike H 14:50, Jul 24, 2004 (UTC)
I've been reading a book about Motown and it says that the group was named "The Vels" with only one "l." Anybody see anything different? 18.104.22.168 04:57, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, I could've sworn "The Vells" with two l's were the name but I'll edit it to include one 'l'. The Vells do seem closer since the Vandellas' name has two l's too, lol. - BrothaTimothy, 03:50, 7 Sept 2007 (UTC)
Not being trusted with the non-lean singers, I was puzzled when at some point reading under "success" I see someone called "Annette Beard" and there is no reference of who this is before the article starts mentioning her. The intro calls for an Annette Sterling. If she got married and changed her name (it says she got pregnant and left the group) it shoudl be noted, it makes absolutely no sense switching to the married name (or other way around) without an explanation.

Nothing is known about the names of Annette's husbands. Her birth name is Annette Beard but appearently she left the Vandellas in 1964 (not sure when in the year but I think it was after the group did "Dancing in the Street", that she left before she was replaced by Betty Kelley, whose name is a mystery, it's either Kelly or Kelley, lol), to get married to someone whose last name was Sterling. However, nowadays, she now goes by the name of Annette Sterling-Helton. - BrothaTimothy 03:54, 7 Sept 2007 (UTC)
Critics views and cultural impact of their music
I'd like to see more details about music critics' response to the music, also, their impact on pop culture, and American culture like the African-American community and even as female role models/icons, where they fit in with the "girl group" phenomenon. OttawaAC (talk) 02:50, 21 October 2011 (UTC) Whom was it who wrote that "Bless You" signaled the end of The Motown Sound? No one record did it. It certainly wasn't "Bless You" written by The Corporation. If any one record was a harbinger of the end of The Motown Sound, it might be "Floy Joy" by The Supremes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:05, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
