This CD comprises Barbara's 2 Atlantic releases from the early 1960s. She is a fine example of how emerging female soul singers sounded before Aretha, closer to Pop than to Blues or Gospel. The tracks are exquisitely produced by Ollie McLoughlin, and full orchestral arrangements by greats Bert Berns, Mike Terry, Artie Butler, Riley Hampton, Van McCoy,Bob Gallo and Lou Courtney. The Hello Stranger LP has the Mighty Mighty Dells warbling in the background to great effect, especially on the title track, and is largely self penned. The second relies on some top writers, incvluding Tony Hester, later of the Dramatics, Chip Taylor and Deon Jackson. The material on each is strong. Although many of the tracks have provided hits for others down the years Barbara's distinctive delivery makes hers the dfinitive versions - if you like these songs, and I expect that you will, check out her later work on Stax, also well worthwhile.

I ordered it because of Hello Stranger and the price was fair (compared to offers by others taking advantage). Ms. Lewis wrote many of the songs on the CD (including that one). She also sings others written by (among others) Neil Sedaka and Billy Vera.

I liked this, I believe it has been remastered and my experience with music that's been remastered is you never get the original studio produced sound quality
