One of the best soul singers of the early 1970's, Barbara Jean English began her career as a member of the popular girl group the Clickettes and recorded many pop-soul sides with them in the late '50s and '60s. Before that, she had been a member of the Gospelettes, the Bouquets, the Ding Dongs and the Avalon's. In the early '60 she recorded as Barbara English and the Fashions and, in the mid '60s, she released five singles for Mala, Reprise, Warner Bros. And Aurora under the name of Barbara English. She returned in the '70s to record two albums of lushly produced soul with a concentration on sensual ballads for legendary producer George Kerr's Althia label. Released in 1973, Barbara's self titled second LP, remains one of the most overlooked hard-soul albums of the 1970's. Finally available in the digital domain, all selections newly remastered.
