THE VELVELETTES - A BIRD IN THE HAND (IS WORTH TWO IN THE BUSH)


I'm very grateful that someone wrote and asked me to feature this song; I thought I featured it a few years back but I looked thru the archives and found that I never did (it gets hard to keep track sometimes!)

This record certainly deserves to be featured, as it is pure Motown girl group bliss.

from 1965...

Grorwing up in the UK as Motown made it big worldwide in the 60's, I remember seeing the Velvalettes on TV and thinkng they were better than the Supremes, I thought Martha and the Vandellas were better too, but as we all know the Supremes were Berry,s and they would dominate. Great record, thanks for posting it. Regards, Dave.
