BARBARA & THE BROWNS - YOU DON'T LOVE ME
This is the final single from this Memphis family group (lead vocalist Barbara, Roberta, Betty, and Maurice Brown). The group is perhaps best known for their mid '60's releases on Stax ("I Don't Want Trouble" was one of the very first 45's I featured here back in 2007). In lesser hands, this song could fall victim to a rather generic blues track, but between Barbara's powerhouse lead vocal, excellent harmony by her sisters and some DRIVING musicianship, this record COOKS.
Barbara recorded a few more singles as a solo artist, but her recording career ended in 1972.
