Barbara McNair and February Birthdays have arrived.

January 31, 2008


Good morning readers,

I just wanted you all to know that I when I got home from work yesterday, my copy of “Barbara McNair – The Ultimate Motown Collection” had finally arrived and I was able to update some posts as promised. I have added her versions of “For Once in My Life” and “The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game” to the respective posts.

Please give the songs a listen and vote for you favorite renditions.

Also the February Musical Birthdays Page has been added to the right sidebar. The featured Birthday song for February is Neil Sedaka’s 1961 recording of “Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen”. Sedaka wrote the music and the lyrics were written by Howard Greenfield. The song reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Neil wrote this song for his then close friend Annette Funicello.

Thanks for reading.

Yes. Barbara has a wonderful voice and style. It is so unfortunate that Motown didn’t promote her more while she was there.
