Fair use rationale for Image:Marvelettes-20thcenmasters.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Marvelettes-20thcenmasters.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:49, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Beechwood 4-5789[edit]

Are we sure that Beechwood 4-5789 was the most popular pre-Rick Springfield number in America? (Not sure of the metric by which this would have been judged, but Pennsylvania 6-5000 was a far more popular song.) Is there a citation for this? Chicobangs (talk) 14:14, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

That assumption was removed over 6 mth ago! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tripplepoints (talkcontribs) 00:08, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

POV[edit]

Following on from the comments above, this article is currently short of citations, and stuffed with opinionated fancruft,; for example - " As the first popular Motown act, they carried a lot of responsibility during this time."

More references please, and less of the peacock wording. This is an encyclopedia - not a fan site.

  • Also, there is inconsistant usage of the word "The" before the group's name: the article title clearly uses the word and therefore we are lead to believe that it is part of the group's name. However, the very next sentences use lowercase "the". Normally the first word in a group's name is capitalised whether or not it is a definate or indefinate article (the, a, an), a conjunction (but, of, and, with) or whatnot. Anyone able to source "The Marvelettes" vs "Marvelettes"? In doing so, you'll probably find a ton of reliable sources to counterbalance the POV metioned above! --Jubileeclipman 21:08, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

I have done all I can to correct the information in this article in an unbaised way. It should now be accurate.

regardless of the accuracy, it's overall a poorly written article. You'd never see this in an encyclopedia. It needs cleaning up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.223.136.5 (talk) 15:36, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Drums??[edit]

So who played drums, Marvin or Smokey? The sentence that contains this information is not clear on this matter. Thoughts?THX1136 (talk) 21:18, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Marvin, in the absense of a 'both'. Rothorpe (talk) 22:56, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Is that a proper grammar sort of thing? If so, thanks! I learned something I didn't know.THX1136 (talk) 21:40, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Don't know whether I'd call it that, but you're welcome. Rothorpe (talk) 01:11, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
