Watchout! was the fourth studio album and fifth album overall by Martha and the Vandellas, released on the Gordy (Motown) label in 1966. The album featured the hit singles, "I'm Ready for Love" and "Jimmy Mack" and the ballad single, "What Am I Gonna Do Without Your Love?" This was one of the last albums by the girls to feature songs from Holland, Dozier, Holland, who the following year would leave Motown, as was with William "Mickey" Stevenson, the man who helped put the group on the musical map. The title of the album "Watchout!" was derived from a song featured on the flip-side of their hit single "My Baby Loves Me" (released earlier in 1966) entitled "Never Leave Your Baby's Side" (never released on an album). That song featured a chorus from the Vandellas which warned to "Watchout!" for "other girls" who could steal your man.
