Jackie Trent Rip

Recommended Posts

This is very sad news, a truly great and prolific british songwriter...and singer of note. Ironically, i have only recently located a copy of " You Baby " for Mr. Taylor to put back in his collection...a tune, well spun in the zenith of both Wigan & Cleethorpes..and borrowed of course, by Len Barry as the original B-side to u.k. Brunswick release of "1-2-3".

I considered her a friend and she was one of my regular listeners to Signal 2(Staffs/Cheshire). Born Yvonne Burgess in Newcastle U Lyme she was a sparkling talent who knew first hand how to write hit songs.

As a Northern fan she particularly liked Queen of Fools - Barbara Mills! Those Pet Clark sides were outstanding RIP Yvonne.

I live here in Menorca (currently a VERY rainy Menorca)

 

Jackie lived and was well know on the island (and although divorced Tony Hatch lives here too!!) 

 

Fabulous voice, and some great tunes

 

RIP to a great talent

Although not a dancer here this song epitomises the 60s, a brilliant song written by Tony Hatch with an obvious nod to Bacharach/David

 

RIP Jackie.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks that they'd been listening to some of the Bacharach-David songs of that time. I could imagine Dionne Warwick singing it. A really lovely song, still has an emotional effect if you're feeling down.

 

RIP Jackie.

Did she do the original version of You Baby? The original issue in the UK of Len Barry's 1-2-3 has Bullseye on the flipside. I've got an American issue of his version of You Baby, sure it hasn't got 1-2-3 on the reverse but need to check it out if I can find it here in the chaos.

i know for certain that some MCA u.k. re-issue's have " you baby " on the B-side...apologies geoff..got it the other way round by mistake...Len Barry wrote it and sang it first..Jackie's is the cover version.....and the best known. i may be wrong, but even some of the brunswick issues may initially have had " you baby " on as well.

Phil Spector, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil wrote it while they were staying in Batley

 

 

Len Barry wrote it and sang it first..

 

I was joking about Batley but it's definitely a Spector-Mann-Weil composition.

If you have a copy that credits Len Barry as the writer I'd be interested in seeing a scan. Cheers.

No, You Baby only came out on Len barry on a 1971 or 1972 reissue of 123.  It was a single in it's own right in the USA in 66 or 67.  Several versions before his though.

You Baby was Ronettes originally, Lovin' Spoonful too

 

Of course you're right Ady. I'm playing it now off the Back To Mono compilation. A very typical Phil Spector production. For the Northern scene Jackie Trent or Len Barry are better dancers imo as they are slightly faster. The intro drums on the Len Barry version are similar to 1-2-3.

Had to post up Jackie's really elusive and excellent version of Mary Wells "The one who really loves you" (Oriole 1962) boy thats a tough record to find, only had one in the last 20 years.
