By the time Playboy was released in July 1962, it was the third Marvelettes album in just eight months, although both of the predecessors had struggled for acceptance. Playboy is a much more consistent album than Please Mr Postman, despite lacking that number one smash, and unlike Smash Hits of 62 features an abundance of material written with the group in mind, such as Playboy, Beechwood 4-5789 and Someday Someway. Whilst the achievements of The Marvelettes would eventually be surpassed by The Supremes, this album shows they were worthy of their lofty mantle in 1962 – Motown’s first breakthrough act.
