I just caught this all I can say is WOW great site and even has our own Bobby Eli's name in the mix. The other artists links are good too, esp. some of the old photos.

The mighty Major Harris is still loved by one and all. Now whenever I play love won't let me wait, I can just turn off the lights, light a candle, put on my cans (studiospeak 4 headphones), and just enjoy the moment like Major, Barbara, Yvette and Carla did on that magical session for the song. Thanx Zeke!

Out of respect for Barbara's memory, I hope there are no takers on this one! Bobby, I think she'd be real happy if you kept that one all to yourself!!

Bobby E, I thought that we were cool, man. Imagine what the tape might fetch on ebay. Bobby, how did she feel about having to record that part? Did she ever express any regrets, or, did she consider it art?

I met Barbara long after she recorded that. We talked about it once when I asked her "WHAT did your parents say when they heard it??" She replied with a laugh like only Barbara could give and didn't say much else. If she were alive, I'm certain she'd think this was all quite funny. It would disturb me if that vocal track by itself got out. Bobby seems like an awesome guy and he's doing the right thing. Hmmmmmmmmm Juicefree ... lots of money on Ebay or Bab's wrath from the other side? No contest!

Barbara had "fun" while recording that part, although it was recorded behind a baffle in the back of the studio with the lights out..
She wouldnt divulge if there was any ..ahem..
"auto-eroticism" involved, other that thinking about buying a new Corvette!!

Now that moan was the thing that made the track "very special"! When I first heard the song on daddy's old record player while I was playing with my toys in the living room in 1974, I just ignored it, didn't understand what it was. But in the insuing years when he would play the "My Way" album on the regular, I peeped game on that part, and I must say that I did blush whenever Barbara's part came on. But never the less, it complemented perfectly along with the vocal stylings of Major Harris. Now Bobby, if that unreleased 5-second part you have in your archives would've made it on the album release, that would've made it very special because I tell ya, I never admitted to my father about this, but her voice was SEXY AS HELL! And all of us would've fell out of our chairs if that part made it on the song! Is the 5-second part that hot?

Not 5 seconds (duh!), 5 minutes I mean! Time to take some Ginko!

Thats better daddy!!
