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".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.
Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.
The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
