Product details

2 LPs ON 1 CD  + 7 BONUS TRACKS

24-BIT DIGITALLY REMASTERED

Featuring two strong lead singers, Gladys Horton and Wanda Young, the cheerful harmonies of The Marvelettes were probably the most pop-oriented of Motown’s major female acts. They did more than their fair share to put the Detroit label on the map, while bringing the heart of soul to rock and roll. The group went on to sing (and occasionally co-write) hit after hit and their signature tunes became classics of the next generation, including “Please Mr. Postman”, “Playboy”, “Someday, Someway”, and “Beechwood 4-5789”, among others. This quintessential release presents the two finest LPs of The Marvelettes’ classic line-up: Playboy (1962) and Please Mr. Postman (1961), which were both originally issued by Tamla Records. These two magnificent albums have been remastered and packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 7 bonus tracks.
