Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Susan Barrett

Here is a song of Billy Austin and Louis Jordan, performed by the great singer Susan Barrett. She was a rising young star of nineteen years when she met the challenge of giving a dozen familiar songs on her debut album a fresh approach. Singing with style and drama, both hot and cool, her voice has a richly mature quality that belies her youth and packs plenty of power. She belongs to the great tradition of big-voiced singers such as Lana Cantrell, Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand or Eydie Gormé. Enjoy!

Is you is, or is you ain't ma' baby

Here is another dynamic song by the great Susan Barrett, a popular singer of the sixties with a physique "à la Bardot" and a big electric voice (she appeared namely in the Ed Sullivan show, the Dean Martin show and played a singer in the French movie "The April Fools", in 1969). Enjoy!
