The Original Marvelettes. Motown's Mystery Group - Marc Taylor
At a time when most girl groups merely swayed back and forth on the stage, the Marvelettes came out of nowhere to take on the music world and give Motown its first #1 pop record, "Please Mr. Postman." During the next decade the Marvelettes evolved to the sexy, sultry sound of "Don't Mess with Bill" and other Billboard top-40 hits. What happened in between and why their rise to the top was followed by their sudden demise is the brutally honest story behind The Original Marvelettes: Motown's Mystery Girl Group.
