A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 21

The Velvelettes – Lonely Lonely Girl Am I – TMG 521

This sadly under-rated dance track was issued on the UK Tamla Motown label in July 1965.

The group formed in 1961 as a student band on the Western Michigan University campus. It comprised sisters Carolyn and Mildred Gill with cousins Bertha Barbee-McNeal and Norma Barbee (both from Flint, Michigan) , where they were students. Carolyn’s friend Betty Kelly was also an original member.
