Favorite music: american girl groups from the 60’s

Ci sono una manciata di gruppi musicali americani nati negli anni ’60 e composti da donne che hanno un posto speciale nel mio cuore.

THE MARVELETTES

An American girl group that achieved popularity in the early- to mid-1960s and the first major successful act of Motown Records after the Miracles and its first significantly successful girl group after the release of the 1961 number-one single, “Please Mr. Postman”, one of the first number-one singles recorded by an all-female vocal group and the first by a Motown recording act.  Despite their early successes, the group was eclipsed in popularity by groups like The Supremes, with whom they shared an intense rivalry.

THE SUPREMES

The Supremes were an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Founded as the Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, the Supremes were the most commercially successful of Motown’s acts and are, to date, America’s most successful vocal group  with 12 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. At their peak in the mid-1960s, the Supremes rivaled the Beatles in worldwide popularity, and in 1967, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & the Supremes
