Barbara George – I Know (You Don’t Want Me No More) 1961
Born Barbara Ann Smith, she was raised in New Orleans and began singing in a church choir. She was discovered by singer Jessie Hill, who recommended her to record producer, Harold Battiste. Her first record on Battiste’s AFO (All For One) record label, “I Know (You Don’t Love Me No More)”, which she wrote, was issued in late 1961, and both topped the R&B chart and made #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Barbara George may be remembered as a one-hit wonder — but this song is a helluva one-hit legacy she has composed and recorded for us. There is no way anyone can NOT like this song! No way! No how! I know! 😉
Cherish the oldies.
