MARY WELL'S MAGNIFECENT DEBUT ALBUM

INCLUDES 10 BONUS TRACKS

Mary Wells developed a unique stage persona that was both shy and sexy at the same time. She became a star when Berry Gordy signedher as a teenager and her first Motown hits (such as Bye Bye Baby and The One Who Really Loves You) helped to define the emerging sound of the Detroit label in the early 1960s. This quintessential collector’s edition contains Wells’ magnificent and long-unavailable debut album for Motown, Bye, Bye Baby, I Don’t Want to Take a Chance (1961). In addition, 10 bonus tracks from the same period. These songs serve as the best introduction for anyone wanting to explore the music from Wells’ early career. This is the material upon which Mary Wells’ reputation and personal style were built.
