Mary Wells Sings My Guy

LP (Item 45225) Motown, 1964 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

Maybe the most classic album ever from the legendary Mary Wells – and a set that really shows why she was one of Motown's first great singers at the start! Mary's got a way of sounding strong while having her heart broken too – a complicated emotional approach that comes through wonderfully in the classic tune, but which also really graces most of the numbers here too – recorded with this echoey brilliance that underscores some of the themes of sadness and longing. Smokey Robinson and Mickey Stevenson produced, and give Wells some of the best old school modes used in the early Miracles albums – and titles include the huge hit "My Guy" – plus "He's The One I Love", "Does He Love Me", "He Holds His Own", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "You Do Something To Me", "If You Love Me, Really Love Me", and "At Last".

A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California ...

Oh Girl
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good-
Wicked electric funk from Young Holt Unlimited – and a real departure from the sound of their 60s albums, and a step into a groove that's very 70s-styled overall! The album's heavy on Fender Rhodes – played not just by group member Ken Chaney, but also by a young Bobby Lyle – ... LP, Vinyl record album
