Digitally remastered two CD collection of recordings from the late, great Soul vocalist originally taped for the 20th Century Fox label between 1964 and 1965. Included are her label debut, the self-titled Mary Wells plus six bonus tracks (which were originally released on a 1996 US compilation); and for the first time on CD worldwide, the 1965 album Love Songs to the Beatles. Mary Wells was Motown's first female major chart maker, racking up hits for the label that included 'Bye Bye Baby,' 'You Beat Me to the Punch,' 'Two Lovers' and the all-time classic 'My Guy.' in 1964, she made a dramatic move to 20th Century Fox Records, the first internationally-known Motown artist to do so. 20th Century Fox - while not known as an R&B label - saw Mary as an important addition to their roster and immediately had her begin work on her all-important first LP for the company. Producers included Carl Davis, Bob Bateman and Andre Williams; the resulting album yielded five R&B chart hits for Mary.
