Servin' Up Some Soul is the eleventh overall album released by R&B legend Mary Wells, released in 1968 on the Jubilee record label. Her first and only release with the once-fabled R&B company (a second Jubilee release was aborted for years) yield a modest charter with "The Doctor", which would be Wells' final top 100 hit on the pop charts though Wells would continue to have R&B hits. It would be her final album for thirteen years with 1981's In and Out of Love. Hip-hop producer J Dilla later sampled "Two Lovers History" for his instrumental simply titled "History".
