One of the rarier Motown CDs ever

"This superb 1963 Marvelettes album was issued on CD in 1994 and boy, before you say "bam", it was deleted. The original 10 track album was quite a good period album, but, holy mackerel, "Knock On My Door", a 1964 unused singles track is just plain amazing.
Some background; the last 3 Marvelettes singles had not sold too well, and when they recorded "Knock On My Door" as a possible single, it did not make the grade. Instead, their "Too Many Fish In The Sea" was released a few months later, and became quite a big hit, although it should've been bigger. It's generally considered one of the best Motown singles of that middle-period.
This CD is usually going for big bucks these days...I'm sure happy I got my copy."
