Songs the Beatles Covered (An Occasional Series)

From 1963, please enjoy Girl Group icons The Marvelettes and the original version of "Please Mr. Postman."

A great song, to be sure, but hardly obscure. Tell the truth, the real reason I wanted to post it is I just chanced across that 1963 picture sleeve, which I had never seen before and which is stone fabulous in its charmingly period way.

Actually, now that I think of it, I can't recall ever seeing ANY Motown picture sleeves from back then. If somebody out there has a clue, let us know, please....

I'm not sure, but that might actually be the LP cover.

Oops. Now that I think of it, that's obviously the LP cover, not a single sleeve.

I regret the error.

No biggie...hey, you're the one putting out two blogs!

It is a charming piece of near-outsider art.
