Product Description

Product Description

In Motown’s beginning Mary Wells was the Queen--its first genuine solo star, the headliner of the Motortown Revues, whose hits are among the finest of the early 1960s: "Two Lovers", "You Beat Me To The Punch", "The One Who Really Loves You", "My Guy". And, like every other artist on the growing roster, Wells recorded as often as possible, creating more than enough for her singles and albums releases. With this revealing new two-CD collection, Something New: Motown Lost & Found, we’ll hear all of her amazing "extra" music: 47 rare tracks, 23 of them never before heard.

Something New: Motown Lost & Found is an extraordinary, chronological overview of Mary working with nearly every producer at the company, from Smokey Robinson to Holland-Dozier-Holland, Berry Gordy to Mickey Stevenson, even the Contours’ Sylvester Potts. Among the unreleased sides are four newly discovered duets with Marvin Gaye. Two near-duets with the young "no-hit" Supremes. Sessions for an unfinished standards album, featuring a set of tracks targeted for the adult market in which she is backed on a few tracks by the newly signed Four Tops. An early version of the B-side "You Lost The Sweetest Boy", known as "Your Loss, My Gain". A classy "cha-cha" track, "This Is Something New", whose sublime performance inspired this collection’s title. You’ll also hear the two-dozen songs issued after Mary left the label in 1964, now collected in one place for the first time: the seven vault tracks from the 1966 LP Vintage Stock, including Smokey’s "When I’m Gone" and "I’ll Be Available"; three rare duets with Marvin Gaye from his first box set; the 11 cuts first issued on the two-CD set from the 1990s, Looking Back; and three others scattered across various rarities collections. The difference here: all of them are in unreleased stereo mixes for the first time. Something New: Motown Lost & Found is housed in a digi-pak that includes a 32-page booklet, a treasure trove of rare photos and an essay by writer Stu Hackel. It’s a special collection telling a deeper story of young Mary Wells and the ascent of an iconic company.

Due to the the fact that she left Motown too soon, she became far too underrated and only remembered for one hit on the label, despite the vast amount of material she left behind there. She had a distinctive emotional and plaintive voice that was richer and more wide ranging that any of her Motown contemporaries such as Diana Ross from The Supremes, Martha Reeves and either Gladys Horton or Wanda Young of the Marvelettes. But unfortunately, just after the Motown label was starting to explode due to their new distinctive backing sound that the label had only just invented that caught on with the whole world known as the Motown sound, she very abruptly left the label, upset with her royalties, and the label ended up flourishing without her. By then she spent three and a half years on the label from late 1960 to early 1964, releasing four studio albums and a live album on the label plus a duet album with Marvin Gaye which was released just before she left the label but recorded about a year earlier apparently. Unfortunately, some of the material she was given to record at Motown didn't quite match her vocal talents, probably because the label was in its infancy then and had not yet developed any definite sound, as she was one of the first stars there, and Smokey Robinson was the only major songwriter there then, and the only one capable of providing her with suitable material then, and this was back at a time when he had a lot less experience at songwriting and producing. Yet he had already developed his songwriting magic and his phenomenal poetry and was immediately writing a string of US hits for her. Yet he had nothing else to conjure with, not even a distinctive backing sound from Motown as this was long before the label developed their distinctive sound, only his own skills.Read more ›

I just felt sure that if I stayed around long enough the those dank and dusty vaults would yield all these early tracks by the one and only original Queen of Motown. These gems collected from 1969 - 1964 are almost unparalleled in their nostalgia quotient and even feature The Supremes on backing vocals on four tracks, I will not comment on how the crown was sidelined to one Miss Ross!!

As well as the two CDs of wonders and never before heard tracks ( in the UK) the pack comes with a 30 page booklet telling the Mary Wells story, the archive history of many of the tracks ~ a real labour of love.

I can not recommend this highly enough not only as an historical document that fills the gaps in Mary's recording history but also for any student of the development of soul music from the 1960s.

Although each track has its own unique magic for me the two standout tracks (at the moment, I play it daily) are "Honey Boy" also later recorded by The Supremes and the original of "When I'm Gone" a hit for that other much neglected daughter of Motown, Brenda Holloway
