Music, Sweet Music!

Mary Wells is finally getting her due, unfortunately this new biography appears to fall short of the mark.  Better to buy the wonderful retrospective of her early music put out by Motown and Hip-O-Select.  She would eventually be upstaged by Diana Ross and suffer through the last years of her life in obscurity, but for an all too brief moment she was the Queen of Motown, covering Berry Gordy's songs and collaborating with Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye.  This set includes seven duets with Gaye.  I leave you with Mary Wells singing My Guy.
