Motown moved all of its operations to Los Angeles in June 1972, with a number of artists, among them Martha Reeves, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight & the Pips, and Motown's Funk Brothers studio band, either staying behind in Detroit or leaving the company for other reasons. From then on the typical Motown sound disappeared, but the company still went on producing great records, like the ones from Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, and discovering new artists, like Rick James and The Commodores.
