Few other soul singers managed to be as shy and sexy at the same time as Wells (Barbara Lewis is the only other that springs to mind), and the soft-voiced singer found a perfect match with the emerging Motown production team, especially Smokey Robinson.
It's been rumored that Wells was being groomed for the sort of plans that were subsequently lavished upon Diana Ross; more nefariously, it's also been rumored that Motown quietly discouraged radio stations from playing Wells' subsequent releases.

Wells got her big break by auditioning her own "Bye Bye Baby" to Motown founder Berry Gordy; Gordy promptly signed her and released the song as a single, which did fairly well with R & B audiences.

One of the things I discovered is that Mary Wells, who had a #1 hit that year with the classic "My Guy," was Motown's biggest star going into 1964.
Mary Wells became a star when Barry Gordy signed her as a teenager and she had her first Motown hit, "Bye Bye Baby." Since that does not appear on this collection of "The Best of Mary Wells," you can see that once again we have a CD with a somewhat misleading title.
With her soft voice, Mary Wells was a soul singer who could sound both shy and sexy at the same time.
