Overview

Largely overshadowed by the other dominant girl groups in the Motown stable, the Velvelettes quietly released a handful of singles that made a soft presence on the pop charts, but nothing in comparison to the bullets fired by the Vandellas, Supremes, and Marvelettes. That's not to say the quality was any less, as this best-of compilation clearly proves. Songs like "He Was Really Saying Something" and "Needle in a Haystack" were their largest numbers, but their vocal delivery proved that -- given the right production team and attention -- they could have been just as big as any of the aforementioned girl groups. Die-hard fans may want to check out the excellent 2005 Motown Anthology, but those wanting just the hits will find that this disc provides all of the Velvelette sounds they could possibly ever need.
