My Guy

My Guy (Robinson) - Mary Wells
c/w 1. You Lost The Sweetest Boy (Holland-Dozier-Holland) 2. Two Lovers (Robinson)

Written and produced by Smokey Robinson, music from The Funk Brothers and backing vocals from The Andantes - Jackie Hicks, Marlene Barrow, and Louvain Demps, Mary took this straight to No. 1.
Apart from duets this was Mary's last recording for motown, taking an option not to renew her contract after her twenty-first birthday she left for 20th Century Fox but never had the same success.
