The Carpenters released their version of “Please Mr. Postman” in 1974 and it went all the way to #1 on the US Hot 100. The original version of the tune by The Marvelettes (featuring Marvin Gaye on drums) also hit the top of the charts back in 1961.
The Carpenters’ “Please Mr. Postman” appears on the duo’s Horizon L.P. from the summer of 1975.
