MOTOWN: THE MARVELETTES - PLEASE MR. POSTMAN

The Marvelettes scored Motown's first of its 57 US #1 hits in December 1961. It was also The Marvelette's only #1 hit. Lead vocalist Georgie Dobbins co-wrote the song and Marvin Gaye played the drums. Sadly Georgie's father forbid her performing in nightclubs and she left the group before they got the signed to Motown and Gladys Horton replaced her as main vocalist. Katherine Anderson, Georgeanna Tilman and Juanita Cowart were the other members.
This is one of my all time favorite Motown hits :-)
