Liner Notes by Alex Henderson

The Rest Of My Life is the 1976 album by legendary soul diva Martha Reeves.

Tony Silvester, General Johnson, Tony Camillo, and Bert DeCoteaux -- working independently resulted in Martha’s best post-Motown release to date.

The material and arrangements suit her voice and style and the release is more of what you expect from the Detroit diva.

Included is Martha's original version of Gwen Guthrie and Pat Grant's "This
Time I'll Be Sweeter," a song later popularized by Angela Bofill.

Reeves' version of Gamble & Huff's "Now That We Found Love" is one of the better cuts; Martha sings it with as much conviction as the O'Jays, who first waxed it.

"Thank You" is an uptempo romp produced by General Johnson, who has Reeves reaching for notes like her former producers at Motown did which became very reminiscent of her classic Jimmy Mack.

Plus, you can count on Martha to pour every ounce of emotion into a ballad, and this album has some excellent slower songs, including the title track.
The Rest Of My Life is regarded as one of Martha Reeves' best albums ever, including the releases with The Vandellas.
