With her purring passionate voice and arrangements both spare and sumptuous, Barbara Lewis recorded some of the best soul-pop of the 1960s. Though best remembered for her hits Hello Stranger (which Barbara wrote along with a number of her early singles), Baby I'm Yours, and Make Me Your Baby, she recorded a wealth of fine material for Atlantic Records throughout the 1960s that remains beloved among devotees of both the Beach Music and Northern Soul scenes, with such esteemed producers as Bert Berns, Arif Mardin and Artie Butler behind the board. This two-CD collection is the most comprehensive anthology of her Atlantic recordings ever assembled (and the only one available), featuring the A-sides and B-sides of all 17 singles she issued for the label, many of which have never appeared on CD. Richie Unterberger's notes feature exclusive quotes from Barbara Lewis herself; Charles Benson contributes a fresh mastering job. A soul essential!
