5.0 out of 5 stars Her last fully new LP for Motown September 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"My Guy," of course, was indisputably Mary Wells greatest hit. It was the summit of Smokey Robinson's two years-plus work with Wells as her chief producer and, by the spring of 1964, he perhaps knew instinctively what material was exactly perfect for her. In 2004 the song will be forty years old but even now when you hear it start up on the radio it is the aural breeze to your heart via your ears that is was then. Indicative of his genius, by the way, is that fact that Smokey came up with the equivalent male perspective of passionate new love less than a year later ("My Girl").
In June 1964, this LP didn't need anymore than its single monster hit to succeed. It wasn't the quality of the record, but other reasons, that kept it from spawning more. Egged on by her then-husband Herman Griffin, as well as a vague promise of movie work, Twentieth Century Fox Records had Mary thinking the grass was greener elsewhere. Then 21, she renounced her Motown contract and, after some courtroom scrimmaging, she was free. Subsequent history (and chart numbers) suggests it was one of the worst career decisions in pop music.
Motown, I suppose, could hardly be blamed for not releasing any lame duck Wells' singles whose success would only have bolstered Mary's career stock for some other company. Tracks one through six of this disc (the 'in-house' material), as well as many of the tracks that subsequently saw the light of day on her 1994 "Looking Back" double-CD package, suggest there were a lot of Mary Wells' singles in the pipeline.
On this disc there's Holland-Dozier-Holland's "He Holds His Own" and "Whisper You Love Me Boy." This famous production trio had already proven with "You Lost The Sweetest Boy" that they could get hits on Wells.

1.0 out of 5 stars Remake November 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
These are not original tracks.

These are remakes of the original.

If you are looking for original Mary Wells

songs as I was, Do Not purchase this CD.

These are remakes of the original.

3.0 out of 5 stars Voice is still there, but not the originals October 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've enjoyed Mary Wells for years, but nostalgia buffs should beware. These are all remakes, and not terribly interesting ones, lite-jazz, bouncy-pop backings. MW's voice is still delightful, but buyers should shop around (excuse me Smokey Robinson) if they are only going to buy one of her albums.
