Overview

A brief 11-song CD that contains the hits and only the hits from the Marvelettes; these are all A-sides that did some damage on the charts, and no B-sides or album cuts are included. Everything from the early, raucous five-lady "Please Mr. Postman" to "My Baby Must Be a Magician," which featured Wanda Young-Rogers, session singers, and Melvin Franklin's bass intro. This front-runner special includes the conga-driven "Too Many Fish in the Sea," "I'll Keep Holding On" (cut in New York City by Mickey Stevenson), and Smokey's "Don't Mess With Bill," all digitally remastered and enhanced.

The most under rated female group of all times. They came out with Motown's first crossover million seller "Please Mr.Postman",kicked butt with Too Many Fish In The Sea,Playboy,Don't Mess with Bill and the list goes on and on.Sadly they were in the same company at the same time Martha and the Vandellas and a group called the Supremes whom were pumping out hit after hit.Rumor has it they were pushed aside and never receive the respect and backing they deserved.The Marvelettes should be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame .Those girls had talent and could bring the house down.Please be advised like the Supremes there is a fake group of Marvelettes touring,they brought their "traveling circus" to my city and I stood outside the club informing the customers they were not the orginals.Please don't waste your hard earn money supporting these fakes.The orginal talented singers are from Inkter, Michigan and are in their late 50's /60's.The ones that showed up in town were barely mid-thirty .In closing if you want to enjoy good music,smooth sounds and classic Motown this is the CD to buy. Long live the Marvelettes lets demand they be admitted in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
