Released to coincide with what would have been Mary Wilson’s 77th birthday, The Motown Anthology is a two CD collection of Mary’s leads for the Supremes and their original group the Primettes, along with several from her solo career.
This first-ever comprehensive overview of Mary Wilson’s Motown discography presents 38 songs, including a whopping 33 tracks only available physically on this collection.
The Motown Anthology boasts nearly two dozen Supremes classics, deep cuts, and never before-heard songs (most with stunning new mixes) from a host of legendary songwriters including Berry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Holland-Dozier-Holland, Deke Richards, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and others.
If that wasn’t enough, the collection includes the CD debut of Mary Wilson, her 1979 solo album on Motown, plus a total of 7 unreleased tracks and 13 unreleased mixes or alternate takes. Inside is a 36-page booklet featuring rare photos, an extensive essay detailing her career, and testimonials from her peers – among them Sir Paul McCartney, Otis Williams, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
