Ever heard of Barbara Lynn
? She was a rarity in the world of R&B in the early 60's: a black female songwriter
. After a couple of decades out of the spotlight, she returned in 1999 with a new album
Here's one more Barbara Lynn YouTube clip, a rather generic soul number called Movin' On A Groove"
. It's a fairly forgettable track, but her warm vocals make it worth a listen. Dumb video alert.
Carla Thomas (daughter of Rufus Thomas) also recorded a version of Lynn's hit You'll Lose a Good Thing
, as did country star Freddy Fender. Unfortunately, Fender's version has been removed from YouTube.
