Jean Wells - What Have I Got To Lose - Calla

60s SoulPosted by Martin Sun, April 18, 2010 18:07:26

Jean Wells was born in West Palm Beach in Florida, but cut her first two records for local Philadeplhia label Quaker Town in 1964. After a brief stint at ABC records the year after, which resulted in just one 45, she moved to Morris Levy´s Calla records in 1966 or 67 where she had the bulk of her material released. Over the next two years she released eight 45s and one LP ("Here Comes Jean Wells" ) on the Calla label but to little avail. Some of her records have since then been picked up by rare soul DJ´s and collectors alike and are now put in greater esteem then when they were first released. I´m yet to find a definitive discography of Wells´ output, most seem to either omit or include different records, but this is problably the same person that recorded for the Eastern and Sunshine labels as well. Enjoy!
