BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Mary Wilson (born March 6, 1944) is an American singer, who gained fame as a founding member of the Motown female singing group The Supremes during the 1960s and 1970s. Wilson was the only singer to be a consistent member of the group in its eighteen-year tenure.

In 1979, Wilson became involved in a protracted legal battle with Motown over their management of the Supremes. After an out-of-court settlement, Motown signed Wilson to the label. In August 1979, Wilson’s debut solo album entiltled Mary Wilson was released with material produced by Hal Davis. The album took Wilson’s solo work further into a mixture of R&B and disco. The album’s lead single, “Red Hot”, peaked at #95 on the Billboard R&B singles chart. An extended version of “Red Hot” made available as a 12-inch single earned the song a #85 spot on the disco charts in October 1979.

    It is. Thanks for this. I also agree, This should have made the charts asi the song is similar to; say, Young Hearts (Run Free) by Candi Stanton.

    *boggle* Any plans to make past rips available as 24-bit? (Did you keep the files?)

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I have all of the past rips saved in 24Bit. I may go back and make some of the older rips available but I don’t have any plans to do that at the moment. It’s lucky that I have started doing this at all because it takes more of my time I just added another step to my process.Most people don’t realize just how long it takes to rip one record I usually spend an entire day on one single.

  8. Jeff Says:

    Thanks – Love this album. Do like that Motown gives a backhanded slap at Mary by printing “in album MARY MARTIN” Broadway legend Mary Martin?? – did she do a disco album like Ethel Merman!

    24/96 flac of really great source material…Yes!

    [Reply]

  10. Blake Says:

    Great post! I love Mary Wilson. I’ve had the chance to meet her several times and she’s always been very sweet and appreciative of her fans. Did anyone else notice that the label states “from the album Mary Martin”?

  11. Rolls B. Goode Says:

    I made a comment earlier however after closer evaluation of the 24bit 96khz flac I have come to only one conclusion… this vinyl transfer is excellent.
