This Day In Music History :: 1961 :: Please Mr Postman

by Norm Gregory on December 11, 2017

in 1961, Music

To this day… it’s one of my all time favorite tunes.

I love background singers and the lead singer and… I could go on. I bet in the last 56 years I have listened to this song at least once a week.

Today in rock history: on this date in 1961, Motown Records girl group The Marvelettes reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart with its debut single, “Please Mr. Postman.”

Jimi

Ten previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix recordings highlight Both Sides of the Sky, an upcoming posthumous LP from the legendary guitarist. The album will be available March 9th, 2018 via Sony Legacy Recordings on multiple formats, including CD, digital and a numbered, 180-gram audiophile double-vinyl.

The 13-track album compiles material recorded between January 1968 and February 1970. It is the third and final installment in a trilogy series of unissued archival recordings, following 2010’s Valleys of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell and Angels. Engineer Eddie Kramer – who worked on every Hendrix project before the guitar legend’s death – co-produced the album with John McDermott and Hendrix’s sister, Janie Hendrix.
