A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 35

The Marvelettes – Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead – TMG 535

It feels like a relief to get back to familiar Tamla Motown territory with this single after Tamla Motown’s previous couple of excursions into music style dead ends with Billy Eckstine and Dorsey Burnett.

The Marvelettes were established mainstream Motown artists, with their debut, “Please Mr Postman” hitting the US Number one spot and being picked up by the Beatles. However, they never recaptured that peak and although they continued to record and release some good, even great, material, they were being overtaken by Motown’s other girl groups – notably the Supremes.

This record is a good one that gets plenty of plays and remains one that I really like.
