The Marvelettes

Forever: The Complete Motown Albums, Volume 1 (Motown/Hip-O Select)

Despite "Too Many Fish in the Sea" and "Beechwood 4-5789," Motown's mold-setting girl group remains something of a one-hit wonder outside the label's first pop No. 1, "Please Mr. Postman." Its sponsoring LP, plus The Marvelettes Sing, Playboy, and The Marvelous Marvelettes, augmented by live 1962 Apollo material, Greatest Hits, and golden rarities – "He's a Good Guy (Yes He Is)" – prove otherwise via three CDs.
