A. Brenda Holloway - My Baby Moves Me
AA. Brenda Holloway - Spellbound
BRENDA HOLLOWAY was born in California, 26th June 1946, and while still a teenager she signed to Motown’s ‘Tamla’ label in 1963. Her first single for the label – “Every Little Bit Hurts” – was a huge hit reaching #13 on the Hot 100. However, her recording career for Motown was modest for such talent and her final single came in 1967, the Top 40 hit “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy” which she co-wrote with her younger sister Patrice Holloway (see SEV005). The song would later reach #2 when it was covered by Blood Sweat & Tears.
In more recent times many of Brenda’s previously unreleased Motown recordings have come to light and have proved to be amongst the finest of the labels recorded output. Here we present two stunning performances, “My Baby Moves Me” penned by Smokey Robinson and the infectious “Spellbound” written Billy Page and recorded circa 1966.
