To be a woman singing your own blues and soul songs in 1960s Texas was a rare thing. To do so while brandishing a left-handed Stratocaster and bashing out hard-edged licks was even rarer. Enter Barbara Lynn. Her 1962 debut single, “You’ll Lose A Good Thing,” recorded with session musicians including Dr. John, gave her a number one hit, and success that took Lynn out on the road with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, BB King, Supremes, Chuck Berry, and The Temptations. Her’s is a talent that comes into full bloom on Light In The Attic’s recent reissue of Here Is Barbara Lynn, an album packed with passion and fire that showcases Lynn’s prodigious talents, her deeply felt guitar playing, her gutsy soulful singing skills, and her songwriting prowess.
