Product Description

CD Description

It is often forgotten that whilst the Motown legend was made thanks to the chart topping exploits of The Temptations and The Supremes, among others, it was The Marvelettes who scored the label's first number one hit. Not only that, but the song Please Mr Postman was created by a member of the group, Georgia Dobbins, who would then see the song get polished up into a superb piece of pop/R&B. In order to capitalise on this success, Motewn wasted little time in recording an album, although there was no picture of the group to be found anywhere on the cover!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unspohisticated Soul 19 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
This album was released following the success of the eponymous single which reached number 1 on the US charts in December 1961, 15 weeks after its entry (at number 95), giving Motown its first chart topper. The Marvelettes got better and better and went on to make some of Motown's best singles, and even some great albums, until the end of 1969, but none reached the top again, and in fact only two (out of 23) made the top 10. In the UK the group passed under the radar, scoring only one minor hit in 1967 (When You're Young and In Love).

I'm a huge fan, but this album really is pretty dull, despite input from such illustrious writers as Smokey Robinson and Brian Holland, and a hands-on production by Berry Gordy. The songs are unmemorable, the arrangements clunky and the girls don't sound comfortable with them. A couple found their way onto the B side of later singles which is an indication of their quality in itself. For completists only.

The tracks are in a different order from those on the original album.

I like to buy unusual gifts for people. Our postman, Steve, is about the age this song was popular.
He loved it!
