Mary Wilson’s new album has “a lot to say about life”

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith Mary Wilson reports that the album of all-new material she’s been working on– with songs by Brian and Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier — will be out “within a couple of months.

“We haven’t decided on a name yet. It has something to do with my journey in life. It has a lot to say about life,” says the songstress who rose to fame as one of Motown’s legendary Supremes – who, of course, were hit-making giants thanks to songs turned out by Holland-Dozier-Holland.

Mary’s new album is “more adult contemporary,” she says. “It was originally supposed to come out this month, but it isn’t quite there yet. Of course, there’s no radio to play new music these days. There’s the internet and, well, we’ll figure out something.”

Right now, Mary’s busy with her “Up Close” shows, singing sultry ballads at jazz clubs including Hollywood’s Catalina Bar & Grill Sept. 2-5.

“I do ‘Body and Soul’ – there’s a little bit of that sexy thing going on. I do Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now,’ that really sums up my life. I do ‘Here’s to Life’ – a very, very beautiful song.”

There’s not a Supremes song on the list. Those interested in hearing those golden oldies should go to one of her rock ‘n’ roll concerts, not her cabaret performances, Mary says. “I do my concerts all the time – although, this past year or two have been very, very slow with the economy down,” she observes, referring to the abysmal industry-wide concert scene . “There’ve been cutbacks on corporate shows, too. But they’ll pick up when the economy pick up.”

    I had the misfortune of seeing this woman attempt to perform, most of the applause came when it mercifully ended.

    At least she made one good decision, listening to her try to mimic Diana Ross on all those Supremes songs was just damn painful!

    Save your money, check this chick out on UTube first, it speaks volumes about her lack of talent!

    Mary Wilson is a superb singer and is spectacular in concert! I have seen her in concert several times and it has always been most enjoyable. She is one of our true American Music Legends.

    American Music legend!?

    When did that happen, to most people she was just one of the original background singers for Diana Ross.

    Saw her @ The State Fair, that is one tarnished Legend, Most people either ignorerd her performance or just moved along to something more enjoyable (Like Watching Grass Grow)

    The Haters here are devoted Ross fanatics who never got over the 60’s…..I have seen Miss Wilson in concert with the Symphony and she gave a beautiful performance. A very warm , outgoing personality who is still a beautiful looking woman.
