Ho Hum...Yet another glorious Motown girl group single!
The Velvelettes released a brilliant run of 45's on (mostly) the Motown subsidiary label VIP from 1963 til 1967. Their biggest hit was "Needle In A Haystack" (a past 45 of the day and one of the hottest girl group song of all time) and this group was overshadowed by the likes of the Supremes and Martha And The Vandellas in the Motown stable. I guess when there is as much amazing talent on hand as Motown had, certain groups were bound to be overlooked.
The Velvelettes certainly haven't been overlooked by the Northern Soul/ girl group crowd, though. The Velvelettes have been one of the most popular groups on that scene for ages.
