Post 251 - Yvonne Barrett - No Longer Part Of Your Life / Mr. 7654312

Signed to Go records, Yvonne achieved her most chart success in 1965-66 with her version of the Tony Hatch song, "You're The One". In December 1965 she performed over Christmas in a tour for Australian troops in Vietnam. 1970 saw her voted a runner up in the Go-Set magazine national Pop Poll. Although not achieving further chart success she retained considerable popularity through her live appearances. In 1970 she released the single "Lu" which featured her big voice with a brassy jazz-rock, style arrangement. Yvonne's other singles were "Send Her Away" in July '66, "Don't Bother Callin'" Oct. '66 and here to download out of 1972 her last single "No Longer Part Of Your Life" b/w "Mr. 7654312" (AP-9839) her only release on Albert Productions produced by Simon Napier-Bell. Simon penned both sides of this single. It's a pity she never released an LP. During the 1970s she moved into session work and club appearances. In 1985 she was found murdered in Sydney. She had been working there as a waitress since moving from Perth. Her spouse was later convicted of the crime.
