  1. Thanks for introducing me to Barbara… she’s fabulous, kinda like Diana and the Supremes on valium (:

    • (Chuckle) I don’t know about that part there, but I’ve always enjoyed that song. I remember when my older sister talked our parents into buying a new hi-fi record player for her, and it came with a box of 45s. “Hello Stranger” was one of them — although it may have been a imposter singer one a remake label; there were several labels that pulled that routine, and probably cheated the original acts out of lots of royalties.

      As for “Hello Stranger,” it got remade by Yvonne Elliman back in the Seventies, and the cover was absolutely faithful to Barbara’s sound. You can find a video of that on YouTube as well (not surprisingly). You can also find a lot more of Barbara there as well; so, if you haven’t heard enough, just do a search and see what crops up!

      • After discovering her on your post, I went straight to iTunes and bought the album ‘Hello Stranger’… the whole album is great (:

        • You exhibit excellent taste (grin). Incidentally, you may want to check out the genre of beach music, a form of classic R&B, which Barbara is sometimes played in. SiriusXM satellite radio, for instance, has a limited-run channel (13) going through Labor Day, called Carolina Shag (for the dance originated in the Carolina beach towns, often danced to the beach-music beat); and there are probably Web sites devoted to it.
