SONG OF THE DAY Barbara Stant – That Man of Mine


Barbara Holmes, a.k.a Barbara Stant, launched her music career at Norfolk Virginia’s, Shiptown Records.  Though she started out as a label session artist, it wasn’t long before her talents caught the eye of Shiptown’s head man, Noah Biggs who, in turn, featured her as an artist in her own rights.

This was towards the end of the 1960’s and by 1972, Barbara Slant had released her first 45, That Man Of Mine b/w Shadow In Your Footsteps.  What followed was a string of obscure singles during the 70’s, created by label owner Biggs, together with Charles Hunter and local star Lenis Guess; and even later still, belated international acclaim for Barbara.

True to the turbulent times in which it was born her debut, That Man Of Mine, referenced the Vietnam War and through powerfully delivered vocals came this mighty, golden nugget of soul! It’s a beauty! Check it out above.
