Album Review

The Mary Wells volume of MCA's 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection may not be definitive, but the 11-track compilation contains all of her biggest hits — "Bye Bye Baby," "I Don't Want to Take a Chance," "The One Who Really Loves You," "You Beat Me to the Punch," "Two Lovers," "Laughing Boy," "You Lost the Sweetest Boy," and, of course, "My Guy" — which makes it the ideal choice for budget-minded fans.

Mary Wells The First Lady Of Motown

This is a great collection of her Motown hits but it is not a complete collection. All tracks are in TRUE Stereo except for "I Don't Want To Take A Chance" and the version of "Bye,Bye Baby" is a rerecording in Stereo. Also missing is "What"s The Matter With You Baby" with Marvin Gaye. A better collection to purchase is Compact Command Performances 22 Original hits. All tracks are TRUE Stereo and the versions of Bye, Bye Baby and I Don't Want To Take A Chance are in their original Mono mixes. This is a great collection for the casual soul fan but a true Mary Wells fan will seek out the above mentioned collection.If you purchase the actual CD you will notice that the photo inside on the third page is actually Kim Weston and not Mary Wells. Someone at UMG/Motown needs an EYE exam.I Only give it 4 stars for the rerecorded version of "Bye,Bye Baby" and the photo error inside.

The Great Mary Wells

This artist has been one of my ultimate favorit singer of all times. Her music has been in so many generations. she a legend in her time. Though she never really recived the recognition for many of the great songs she sang and wrote. Her voice was pure soul for those times of 1959.-66, She had many hits her Mainstream song was my guy, two lovers she sang many great songs and listening to her greatest hits album will definately give you a deep conecton to the soul she sang from her heart

Mary Wells Exceeds

Unlike many of her contemporaries, male and female, whose music has been beaten to death on the public airwaves and in cinema....Mary Wells has many songs below the surface that easily compete with any Motown classics in my opinion. Her sound is raw, edgy and begs one to move..


Born: May 13, 1943 in Detroit, MI

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

Time and legions of other soul superstars have obscured the fact that for a brief moment, Mary Wells was Motown's biggest star. She came to the attention of Berry Gordy as a 17-year-old, hawking a song she'd written for Jackie Wilson; that song, "Bye Bye Baby," became her first Motown hit in 1961. The full-throated approach of that single was quickly toned down in favor of a pop-soul sound. Few other soul singers managed to be as shy and sexy at the same time as Wells (Barbara Lewis is the only other...
