Probably the most pop-oriented of Motown's major female acts, the Marvelettes didn't project as strong an identity as the Supremes, Mary Wells, or Martha Reeves, but recorded quite a few hits, including Motown's first number one single, "Please Mr. Postman" (1961). "Postman," as well as other chirpy early-'60s hits like "Playboy," "Twistin' Postman," and "Beechwood 4-5789," were the label's purest girl group efforts. Featuring two strong lead singers, Gladys Horton and Wanda Young, the Marvelettes went through five different lineups, but maintained a high standard on their recordings. After a few years, they moved from girl group sounds to up-tempo and mid-tempo numbers that were more characteristic of Motown's production line. They received no small help from Smokey Robinson, who produced and wrote many of their singles; Holland-Dozier-Holland, Berry Gordy, Mickey Stevenson, Marvin Gaye, and Ashford-Simpson also got involved with the songwriting and production at various points. After the mid-'60s Wanda Young assumed most of the lead vocal duties; Gladys Horton departed from the group in the late '60s. While the Marvelettes didn't cut as many monster smashes as most of their Motown peers after the early '60s, they did periodically surface with classic hits like "Too Many Fish in the Sea," "Don't Mess With Bill," and "The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game." There were also plenty of fine minor hits and misses, like 1965's "I'll Keep Holding On," which is just as memorable as the well-known Motown chart-toppers of the era. The group quietly disbanded in the early '70s after several years without a major hit. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads among multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics.

Class distinctions and divisions. Uptown, Downtown. Does it matter where you come from? The story line of "The Boy From Crosstown" has to do with the boy Gladys Horton is in love with. "He may be a boy from crosstown, but HE'S the boy I love." He comes from the other side of the tracks and in the eye of everyone concerned, he's not good enough for Gladys who comes from an apparently more affluent area. The song has some stunning and pointed moments: "It's now where you come from that makes what you are / It's what's inside that counts by far." That line alone knocks me out cold every time because it's such a chillingly real statement. A person shouldn't be defined just by where he or she comes from. And hearing Gladys Horton sing it makes it sound all the more poignant. The second knock out comes near the end when Gladys asserts "But I don't want no doctor's son you see. I want the boy that means the most to me." She doesn't give a d**n about a guy's social status- she wants the man who's real. Producer Norman Whitfield must have believed in this song's potential as he recorded it a number of times. Version number one was recorded by The Velvelettes and the Marvelettes as well. That version was so tough, so rhythmically hot, it's astonishing it wasn't put out. That first version had Norman's '64 / '65 sound heard on tunes like The Velevelettes' "A Bird In The Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush" and "Lonely, Lonely Girl Am I." This time out, Norman re-cut it with a more laser-beam-focused attention to the groove. A repeating guitar figure set the hypnotic tone. The production was not as power-packed with instrumentation as on the first version; instead Norman was working his soon-to-be famous Motown Funk sound: instruments carefully phased in over the course of the song; basic, no-frills, but dynamic drums; percussion to drive a truck by; arrangements where the music track cuts back to a very sparse setting, then kicks into full-drive. It's all found here on "The Boy From Crosstown" version 2. The sound is similar to Norman's version of "He Was Really Saying Something" cut on the Marvelettes for their famous "Pink Album." Maybe this was being considered for inclusion on that album. It definitely rocks as hard as the best of Norman's work. For years, many of us Marvelettes fans were being fed such a steady diet of statements that the Marvelettes were always replaced by the Andantes on their recordings that we've come to accept it way to easily. Lately, we're coming to realize that not only was that an overstatement, but also all of Motown's groups were being frequently augmented, overdubbed or replaced as frequently by the Andantes. Cheers to Norman for using The Marvelettes to full force here as well as arranging the Andantes in the mix so that they didn't so much sing over the Marvelettes as much as they kind of "co-starred" here, singing at times with the group and other times adding a nice counter-vocal line. So enjoy this second version of The Boy From Crosstown and belt out those choruses while you're at it!

No copyright infringement intended. If felt, comment below and I will remove this video. One of my TOP 5 Motown Songs. The Marvelettes did at least 3 versions of this song...the "Shiny Black Boots" version....in the vaults for over 40 years...is QUITE the best. The late Gladys Horton on lead, with Katherine Anderson (Schaffner) and Wanda Rogers with the Andantes and Earl Van Dyke and the Funk Brothers.

[Lyrics The Marvelettes - Too Strong to Be Strung Along] Hey! Listen now Everybody's talking about their heartache And crying an ocean of tears But I'm too strong to be strung along By some silly boy's foolish charm It just boils my blood to see a girl so weak Weak and humbled at me Because if it was me I'd make that silly boys see Ain't nothing they can do to put the hurt on me (I'm too strong to be, strung along By some silly boy's foolish charms) Now listen! Hey! (If it was me I'd make those silly boys see Ain't nothing they can do to put the hurt on me) It made me so mad when I saw Wanetta Taking in that playboy's jive I told her once and I told her twice He'd take her love and leave her cold as ice A tip to the wise should be sufficient enough Playing around with love, girl, is really rough It just boils my blood to see a girl so weak Weak and humbled at me Because if it was me I'd make that silly boys see Ain't nothing they can do to put the hurt on me (I'm too strong to be, strung along By some silly boy's foolish charms) I'm too strong now baby~ (If it was me I'd make those silly boys see Ain't nothing they can do to put the hurt on me) One more time now! (I'm too strong to be, strung along By some silly boy's foolish charms) Hey, now listen! (If it was me I'd make those silly boys see Ain't nothing they can do to put the hurt on me) I'm too strong baby, too strong To be, strung along By some silly boy's foolish charms

The Marvelettes were an American singing girl group on the Motown label. Motown's first successful female vocal group, the Marvelettes are most notable for recording the label's first US #1 pop hit, "Please Mr. Postman", and for setting the precedent for later Motown girl groups such as Martha and the Vandellas and The Supremes. Here they are singing "Don't mess with Bill". Indeed.
This is a song I wrote. Liz Mauri came up with the accompaniment.
MotownMagic1959 The Marvelettes were the first girl group on Motown to provide a hit back in 1961 with "Please Mr Postman" later recorded by The Beatles as they were fans of Motown. "When You're Young And In Love" was their most well-known track. JOHN

My Fave Rave Group: The Marvelettes- Beautiful to look at, Beautiful to listen to... A Roy Orbison classic (what a classic it is, too!) gets a flip-side reading from the ladies' perspective. A fairly straightforward production by William "Mickey" Stevenson nevertheless rocks right along with equal parts youthful energy and just the right amount of melancholic longing. Wanda Rogers takes lead, and nobody could match that wonderful tinge of softly wounded, woman-in-love, bluesy phrasing she posesses. Notice the taffy-pull spin she puts on the line "How long must I dream?" That line alone, when Wanda sings it, is enough to make a grown man weep. Gladys Horton, Katherine Anderson Schaffner, Juanita Cowart and Georgeanna Tillman make their mark with backing vocals that command as much attention as everything else on this record. As with all Marvelettes records, half the fun is found in grooving on the fun those girls always seemed to be having in the studio! * Recently, there have been two excellent box sets from Hippo-Select Motown released on the Marvelettes covering all of their album releases, singles and un-issued recordings- "Forever" and Forever More". Give yourself a gift and get these two sets! The first set, "The Marvelettes: Forever" covers the early years up to the mid sixties. The album "The Marvelettes Sing" is included and that is the album where you'll find this cover of "Dream Baby".
An evening with the symphony performing with the Marvelettes... This Night Was Made For Love" (a.k.a. "Tonight Was Made For Love") is a rare treat on so many levels. It is an wonderful turn from the Marvelettes, showcasing their ever-maturing sound. Truly the ladies were moving from strength to strength on their 1967 album, "The Marvelettes," known to fans as simply "The Pink Album." Gladys Horton doesn't sing the lyrics as much as she caresses and interprets them with a finesse on par with a jazz vocalist. The subject is love and Gladys sings an invitation so beautifully, you just know the object of her affection will respond without delay! Wanda Rogers and Katherine Anderson add a classy, uptown soulfulness as they echo Gladys's lead at times and join in on the chorus. Notice the wonderful inclusion of the Andantes as well- the arrangement is brilliant. At times, the Marvelettes' Wanda and Katherine contribute an "oooh" backing, intersecting with the Andantes as they harmonize a riff, which in turn serves to line up with a lyric the Gladys is singing. The whole effect shows how well these ladies complimented each other. The Funk Brothers, coupled with symphonic touches creates a truly astonishing effect. This song is from Robert Staunton and Tommy Jones and produced by Staunton and Rober Walker. Much of their material seemed destined to stay in the Motwn vaults, which is a shame as these writers always came up with some of the most unique and intriguing productions. Why nobody at Motown saw the potential for more of their songs, even as album tracks, is a shame.
While the very popular release "Don't Mess With Bill" was climbing the pop charts in early 1966, Smokey Robinson penned another tune to keep The Marvelettes momentum going. It was evident to see that Motown stable of singing artists were becoming adults and their music was also taking on an adult flavor. Motown sought to do the same with The Marvelettes by utilizing the very smooth voice of Wanda Young Rogers.

This is the Marvelettes 3rd single which I think landed on #7 on the pop charts. I love the drumming. The reissue seem to have a more "mechanical" drum to it. But I love the way the drummer taps that snare.....
