MARY WELLS came into this world in 1943. She was first to record on Motown label. And was first to give the label a #1 R&B hit in 1964, My Guy written by Smokey Robinson.
In the 50s little SUN RECORDS of Memphis probably had more talent walk in and out than any other record label. Elvis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin Wolf, Rufus Thomas, Roy Orbison, Charlie Rich to name a few. The man just couldn’t keep good help.
