Biography

J. J. Barnes

James Jay Barnes (b 30 November 1943, Detroit, Michigan) is an American R&B singer.

He first recorded in 1960. His early releases including “Just One More Time” and “Please Let Me In”, on such labels as Mickay and Ric-Tic, had relatively little success, but were subsequently picked up as favourites on the English Northern Soul scene. He also covered the Beatles “Day Tripper”, before moving for a short period to Motown Records.

His biggest hit came in 1967 with “Baby Please Come Back Home”, which like many of his records he co-wrote. The song reached # 9 on the R&B charts. However, subsequent singles on a variety of labels, including covers of Black Ivory at Today/Perception Records, failed to repeat the success.

    Talk of the Grapevine An absolutely superb NS dance track that seems to have been eclipsed by the better known J.J. tracks. Go on, Find it - Play it - Love it.
