Been reading more about Miss Wells and the period during which she left motown.

Of course we all know My Guy was a massive hit and then the subsequent drama of her departure.

had she stayed, some sources cite Whisper You Love Me as the follow up. but that was HDH. and the tradition at motown was the hit producer got the next single. So that probably would have been When I'm Gone.

And her sexy smokey vocals are somewhat in the vein of Diana on Where Did Our Love Go

so had Mary stayed, what do you think she would have done? Would most of the Brenda Holloway work gone her way? would HDH have struck gold with her and Whisper? would HDH have been split then between the sups and mary?
