ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In September of 1965 a record was released that was to become an international, all-time classic. "A LOVERS CONCERTO" by "THE TOYS" entered the charts and in just ten short weeks surpassed luminaries the likes of "THE BEATLES, THE SUPREMES, ELVIS PRESLEY, THE ROLLING STONES, THE FOUR TOPS, STEVIE WONDER" etc.. The song reached NUMBER ONE and stayed there for six weeks, becoming a million seller. The voice singing lead, was that of Ms. Barbara Harris. The success of "THE TOYS" carried Barbara to countries all over the world. England, Holland, Germany, Japan, Australia just to name a few. "THE TOYS" have also made many TV appearances. "SHINDIG", "HULLABULLOO", "AMERICAN BANDSTAND", "MIRV GRIFFIN", "JOEY BISHOP", "UPBATE", "CLAY COLE SHOW",etc. After recording several other singles and an album (which has just been re-released on CD, on the Sundazed label), Barbara left the group, had a family and raised a total of seven children. While raising her family she never stopped singing. Married to a musician, Ken Wiltshire, they continually played in small local groups whose styles ranged from Jazz, to Blues and R&B. In 1988 the original "TOYS" reformed and for two years did Concerts, Night clubs, and Oldie shows. Afterwards Barbara continued to sing with her local band, "Rhythm and Babs" .Barbara never liked to be tied to one style of music, which is what made her local band so much fun. Each night she performed 20 to 30 songs and did Gospel, blues, R&B, Rock, and Pop.
THAT WAS BARBARA THEN.
THIS IS "BARBARA NOW".
Barbara has just completed, what she considers to be the pinnacle of her musical life's journey thus far. She has just released Her first Solo CD entitled
BARBARA NOW
Hi! I'm Barbara,
And I just want to tell you that this is truly the high point of my musical life thus far and a true labor of love. I co-produced and arranged the entire project . I also wrote all but two of the songs, and I'm just thrilled. My journey has taken me through Gospel, Blues, R&B, Rock&Roll, Pop and Jazz. The sum of all this is the Barbara I am now. I hope you can hear all the musical influences of my life in my music.

lovely music not taken lightly, and enjoyed to the max
Most folks remember the big international hit from 1965 by the toys, but because of radio not practicing what it preaches, we don't have the chance to hear Barbara now unless we look to find it. It's a disgrace that smooth jazz stations like cd 101.9, or adult comtemperary stations like light fm or adult R&B WRKS or WBLS in NY, won't give this music the time of day because of one hit long ago, and this blind reviewer can say, that hit is the first song i connected name voice and song, and I say this CD and that voice is still as lovely as ever maybe even better. You should grab it today.
