Please Mr Postman by Alan Johnson

In July 1969, while the Rolling Stones played a free concert in Hyde Park, Alan Johnson and his young family left West London to start a new life. The Britwell Estate in Slough, apparently notorious among the locals, in fact came as a blessed relief after the tensions of Notting Hill, and the local community welcomed them with open arms. Alan had become a postman the previous year, and in order to support his growing family took on every bit of overtime he could, often working twelve-hour shifts six days a week. It was hard work, but not without its compensations - the crafty fag snatched in a country lane, the farmers wife offering a hearty breakfast and even the mysterious lady on Glebe Road who appeared daily, topless, at her window as the postman passed by ... Please, Mister Postman paints a vivid picture of England in the 1970s, where no celebration was complete without a Party Seven of Watneys Red Barrel, smoking was the norm rather than the exception, and Sunday lunchtime was about beer, bingo and cribbage. But as Alans life appears to be settling down and his career in the Union of Postal Workers begins to take off, his close-knit family is struck once again by tragedy ... Moving, hilarious and unforgettable, Please, Mister Postman is another astonishing book from the award-winning author of This Boy --

The two subsequently called in the group for another audition, but there was one problem: the group needed to perform an original tune. Dobbins departed the group after the second audition, but her song lingered. Gordy turned the promising track over to producers Freddie Gorman, Brian Holland and Robert Bateman to rework the tune interestingly, Gorman moonlighted as a postman at the time. After Gordy rechristened the girl group the Marvelettes, the quartet recorded the song, accompanied by Motown house band the Funk Brothers and a new drummer: Marvin Gaye. Flash forward two years later, when the Beatles were recording their second album With the Beatles. As with Please Please Me , the group chose a mixture of original compositions and selections from their live repertoire for the track lineup.

It is the debut single by the Marvelettes for the Tamla Motown label, [1] notable as the first Motown song to reach the number-one position on the Billboard Hot pop singles chart. Postman" became a number-one hit again in early when the Carpenters ' cover of the song reached the top position of the Billboard Hot Postman" has been covered several times, including a version by the English rock group the Beatles. Marvels member Georgia Dobbins needed an original song for their audition, and got a blues song from her friend William Garrett, which she then reworked for the group. Dobbins left the group after the audition and was replaced, Gordy renamed the group and hired "Brianbert"— Brian Holland and Robert Bateman's songwriting partnership—to rework the song yet again.
