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.

From Motown's early days, here is a fun-listening album by The Marvelettes, "Recorded Live On Stage." The album, culled from performances at at the famed Regal Theater in Chicago and the famous Apollo Theater, reveals the girls from Inkster, Michigan had quite a great and vocal following, and in one of the toughest of all venues, no less. Here is side one.
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.
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!
this song was recorded in the year 1964. however it didn't turn up until 1986. Lyrics There he goes knocking on her door she treats him like a bore but he's the boy that i adore hey boy want you p
The lovely Twiggy, a true English beauty, to another Marvelettes song 'I'll Keep Holding On' I'll keep on holding on Ohh, yes I will I'll keep on holding on I know that you're the kind of guy You're the kind of guy You got too much pride Scared to love someone Love someone So you- run and hide But each and every day And each and every way My love is growing stronger And I know that you can't hold out much longer When there's no place left to hide I'll still be by your side Cause I'll be... Waiting Oh yes Watching Sho nuff Looking for a chance A chance to make you mine I'll keep on holding on I know you braggin to your friends That you can't be caught Baby you don't know so it's time that you were taught So love you'd better plan To make your final stand No matter where you run now I'll hold on till my will to resist is gone Till I get where I want to Then I'm gonna haunt you Waiting... Oh yes Watching Sho nuff Looking for a chance A chance to make you mine I'll keep on holding on No matter where you run boy I'll keep on holding on No matter where you hide boy I'll keep on holding on Oh you'll never get away boy I'll keep on holding on
The Farces parody "Jackass" and prank each other. Somehow though they just aren't quite as brash...
If there is one Motown act that is underrated then it has to be the Marvelettes. They were one of the first female groups to be signed to the label in 1962. I'm not too keen on their early stuff, but this one from their 1968 release, Sophisticated Soul is great.
By the middle of 1963, The Marvelettes were heavy into touring and performing on the 1963 Motortown Revue. The music industry was making changes to the sound of music and the girl groups were beginning to suffer. Fortunately, Motown saw this and began promoting their girl groups. But other record labels girl groups weren't so fortunate.

A great track, essential listening for any Motown fans.
These are the lyrics to the oldie but goodie song 'Foolish Little Girl' by The Shirelles and the song 'Foolish Little Boy' by The Rocky Fellers.
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
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.
this song smart aleck was released on the marvelous marvelettes album in 1963 on motowns tamla label

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.

When I formed Motorcity in 1987 and recorded The Velvelettes, my dream was to also record The Marvelettes, but whereas the Velvelettes had its original lineup and were totally professional and performing as successfully as they had in the Sixties, The Marvelettes was a very sad story indeed. Gladys Horton had become somewhat embittered after years of fake Marvelettes doing the rounds, and giving her no chance of credibility, and the silky golden voice of Wanda Rogers had been stilled for eighteen years, by 1989, of mental health problems, nervous breakdowns, and heavy drink abuse to the extent that she was rumoured to be an alcoholic bag lady. Everyone but everyone said leave her alone, and she would never sing again, but I refused to give in. Marv Johnson found her finally, and brought her to me in Detroit. She looked embarrassing, and was stone drunk, and everyone wanted to steer clear of her. But Kim Weston sobered her up, and got her to the Hitsville Reunion on March 14th 1989. But they still all said I'd never get a vocal out of her, but we persevered for hours and hours, line by line and word by word, till she sounded like her old self, on "Holding On With Both Hands". Then the song had to be performed on TV, and no way was Wanda up to it, so her fellow Marvelette, Gladys Horton, decided to do it in her place. We had been recording Gladys anyway, and did several songs using both Gladys and Wanda together, but this is the only time you'll ever hear Gladys doing the lead vocal on "Holding On With Both Hands".

By early 1967, The Marvelettes had enjoyed a successful comeback with such hits as "Don't Mess With Bill," "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game," and "When You're Young And In Love." Smokey Robinson wrote and produced their next single "My Baby Must Be A Magician" which turned out to be another successful hit for the group. This track was the B-side with Gladys Horton on lead. She left the group around the time the single was released to take care of her new family life.

Great tune from the girls. Did not chart too well on the pop charts. It did good on the R&B charts though I think it was in the top ten. However, this is a great song with a great lead. The music is outstanding. Listen to the drummer and bass.
[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
