The Old, The New & The Best of Mary Wells is a 1983 album released by Motown legend Mary Wells on the independent label Allegiance Records. Tapping in on her stature as a sixties legend, Wells decided to re-record several of her classic Motown songs, adding in a new wavish sound. The album was produced by Wayne Henderson who would go on to produce Rebbie Jackson's 1984 album Centipede. Only one single was released in the UK, the rerecording of "My Guy", as an extended 12" version that failed to chart. The album was rereleased on CD in 1987 featuring 5 unreleased tracks recorded during the same sessions.
