COVER NOTES:



Mary Wells is the "First Lady Of Motown". She was one of the first R&B artists to sign with the newly formed Motown label. Mary Wells' mellow, seductive vocals laid the foundation for the now-legendary "Motown Sound" that exploded onto the musical scene in the 1960's. In 1962, Mary had three songs that launced to the top of the record charts: "The One Who Really Loves You" (#8), "You Beat Me To The Punch" (#9), and "Two Lovers" (#7). In 1964, Mary recorded her huge #1 hit, "My Guy". The song was also Motown's first #1 single. It is no surprise that the biggest hits recorded by this pioneer of the Motown Sound are now considered R&B standards. All of those classic songs were written by famed songwriter Smokey Robinson. In the late 1970's Mary Wells once again recorded all of her biggest songs. The session was recorded on the state-of-the-art equipment at the historic Starday/King Studios in Nashville, TN. Each of those fabulous, trendsetting songs is included on this collection of "Mary Wells, All-Time Greatest Hits". Mary spent the last years of her life campaigning to gain support for cancer research. That cause was close to her heart because she had endured a bout with larynx cancer. Sadly, on July 28, 1992, Mary died at the young age of 49 years old. Mary Wells will always be remembered for her pioneering roll as "The First Lady Of Motown".
