• Richard BARRETT - The Richard Barrett Story - Searching For a Hit 1954-1962

Richard Barrett became one of the most important African American, record producers and songwriters in R&B during the mid-1950s. He is best known today for turning The Three Degrees into an international superstar act during the 1970s. He began his career though as a singer with the influential doo-wop group The Valentines and this first ever compilation of his recording career begins with that group and continues with various solo recordings culminating in his most famous recording, 'Some Other Guy' which he co-wrote with producers Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller.

This is the most comprehensive overview of his solo career ever released and includes some ultra-rare 45s plus hits like 'Summer's Love' with The Chantels.
