Barbara Lewis is an American singer and songwriter whose smooth style influenced rhythm and blues, pop-soul... The Michigan native had been writing songs since the age of nine, and began recording as a teenager with producer Ollie McLaughlin, who also had a hand in the careers of Del Shannon, the Capitols, and Deon Jackson. Lewis wrote all of the songs on her debut LP (including "Hello Stranger") and confidently handled harmony soul numbers (some with backing by the Dells) and more pop-savvy tunes, some of which, like "Hello Stranger," were driven by an organ and a bossa nova-like beat. Follow-ups to "Hello Stranger" didn't sell nearly as well (although one of her singles, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again," was covered by the Searchers for a British Invasion hit). In the mid-'60s she began doing some recordings in New York City, with assistance from producers like Bert Berns and Jerry Wexler, that employed more orchestral arrangements and pop-conscious material. The approach clicked, both commercially and artistically: "Baby I'm Yours" and "Make Me Your Baby" were both big hits, and both among the best mid-'60s girl group-style productions. Lewis cut an album in the late '60s for Stax (on the Enterprise subsidiary) that, as one would expect, gave her sound a grittier approach, without compromising the smooth and poppy elements integral to the singer's appeal. It passed mostly unnoticed, though, and Lewis withdrew from the music business after a few other singles. The "beach music" scene of the Carolinas remains a bastion of appreciation for Lewis' records, which continue to enjoy popularity and airplay there decades after their original release. 'Snap Your Fingers' is Barbara Lewis' 2nd album.

Continuing the theme 'Private Collection - Overview Albums'...
Claudine Longet was born in Paris. In 1961 she moved to the USA, where she began to perform in clubs in Las Vegas. It was then that she met Andy Williams, whom in the end of 1961 she married. Williams introduced her to owner of the record label A&M - the musical career of Longet began, followed by the release of albums in which she sang various hits of the time (songs by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Carpenters, etc.) in the light, popular variety arrangements typical for A&M Records. 'Claudine' is her debut solo album... A distinctive feature of singing Claudine Longet was her French accent, as well as a timbre reminiscent of half-whisper. She left the stage and began to lead a private life after the tragic death of her boyfriend in 1977...

Michel Polnareff is a French singer-songwriter, who was popular in France from the mid-60's until the early 90's. Michel was born into an artistic family: his mother, Simone Lane, was a Breton dancer and his Russian father, Leib Polnareff worked with Edith Piaf. Michel learned piano by age five, then guitar, and after his studies, military service, and a brief time in insurance, in 1965, Polnareff won the Disco Revue prize in Paris. His first disc in 1966 was an unexpected success - new musical style and Polnareff's atypical image, crossed borders...
An interesting fact: first hit - 'La Poupee qui fait non' (1966), recorded in London, featured Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones as session players...
