Subject: RE: Barbara Lewis
Barbara Lewis is in fact performing these days, and has been since the mid 90's. She originally left the music business in the 70's to pursue other interests, but after resisting many overtures during the ensuing years asking her to sing, finally relented and got back into performing her music.
Barbara was one of the few female vocalists to write her own material. Her 'Hello Stranger' LP in 1963 was entirely self-penned. The title track is a personal favorite, as is the flip of the 45, 'Think A Little Sugar'. The latter didn't chart but has become a 'beach music' classic over the years.
Great music from a classy lady.
