Hey everybody. I just wanted to let you know that I have created a petition to show "Motown-Select" that we would really like them to release the album Mary Wilson from 1979 onto CD with bonus tracks. If you would like to show your support, then please sign my petition at the following URL:

http://www.petitiononline.com/ mary79

Thankyou so much. Remember to sign as soon as you can, because the petition closes August 29th, 2004, and we need as many signatures as we can get to have our voice heard by "Motown-Select". Also be sure to include in your comments that you would also like bonus tracks included. Let 2004 be the year for Mary Wilson fans!

Carlo

I met Mary at the Rock Hall at the opening of The Supremes gowns collection. She said the CD should be out in the fall. She said she had a couple more songs to record and touch up the others.

Carlo, I have signed, forgot to add comment, but that's okay. I see that Cindy Birdsong's name is on the list and Diana Ross(really?) and someone added Florence Ballard's name in spirit!!!

I love Ms Wilson but I though much of the album was weak(Midnight Dancer?UGH!). If it is released I hope they add some of her other stuff like I Keep It Hid, Touch, Dont Let My Teardrops Bother You etc

Thank you everyone so much for signing my petition...I hope to get at least 200-500 signatures...

Hi Charise...actually...no...Cind y Birdsong, Diana Ross, and Florence Ballard didn't actually sign the petition...it was some weirdo who thought it would be funny to post their names...there are some negative comments on my petition...but unfortunately...there is no feature on "Petition Online" that allows you to remove them...

...But thank you everyone...keep up the great work!...We can do it!

Carlo,

First, thanks for working on this worthwhile project!

I have tickets for a Mary Wilson concert on August 13th at 7:00 p.m. (RiverPlace Musikfest site, Bethlehem, PA) and I'd be happy to place blank copies of the petition in a convenient place--perhaps where the performers sell CDs and autograph pictures, etc. after the performances.

Since you have contact with Mary Wilson, I would need her permission to bring the petitions to her "autograph" area before the show, since it might be difficult getting there in time after the show.

She is a co-performer with the "Temptations" Review, and I'd want to make certain that the petitions get to the right place!

Please let me know if you're interested ... and if you receive permission from Mary Wilson and how early she'd like me to get them to her. I'm not trying to get her email address--she probably doesn't want it given out--but she or you can contact me at my email address:

rlfreed@pipeline.com

I'd be happy to sign. Met Mary back in '86. A wonderful and charming person. Oh, did I mention REAL cute.
