Detroit, 1962 must have been quite the place — just buzzing with electricity. Motown was taking off and that was thanks, in no small part, to Mary Wells. Her first singles and debut LP had found massive success but it was this, her second album that really put her on the map. With a handful of tracks written by Mr. Miracle himself, Smokey Robinson, including the smash-hit title-track (which reached #2 on R&B charts, and #8 on the Hot 100), The One Who Really Loves You is as emblematic of the Motown Sound as an album can get. Pure class.
