Barbara English “Small Town Girl (With Big Town Dreams)” (Reprise 349, 1965)

Although a lot of Dusty Springfield’s material during the sixties was cover material, she did a lot of crate digging for some wonderful songs. One of her overlooked pieces of Album Fluff was an equally overlooked piece from session singer, Brill Building Secretary and former Clickette Barbara Jean English.

English, after her performing career with The Clickettes dwindled, was one of many demo queens that walked a weird line between the consistent income of studio work, but wanting to branch out to a solo career. Although she did some remarkable Uptown Soul work from 1963 through ‘67, her efforts, no matter how sparkling, found national radio play, leaving her to take some time off until the 1970’s to give solo stardom another shot.

Here we have a Springfield Stamp of approval, since Dusty’s late ‘65 cover is one of the most note-for-note covers she ever did.
