Marv Johnson – “Come to Me” (1959)

October 18, 2008 at 1:49 pm (Motown)

This release from Jan. 1959 on the Tamla imprint is technically the very first Motown release – the song that got the whole ball rolling.
It made the Top Thirty on the charts. Johnson had other hits in the early days of Motown, but is now unfairly forgotten. Johnson’s early singles would be the precedent to the future sound and success of the label.
