Song Of The Day - "There He Is (At My Door)" by The Vells
The Vells featured a secretary from Motown who was asked to fill in at a session for an absent Mary Wells. That gave Martha Reeves her big break that led to singing background on Marvin Gaye's "Pride And Joy" and eventually to this early recording from 1962. The following year, the newly-named Martha & The Vandellas scored with (Love Is Like A) Heat Wave.
