An interesting minimal soul performer, Barbara Mason initially centered on songwriting when she entered the music business in her young adults. Being a performer, though, she got a big success in 1965 with her self-penned “Yes, I’m Prepared” (amount five pop, number 2 R&B), a fetching soul-pop confection that spotlighted her high, girlish vocals. Among the first types of the special, lush sound that had become called Philly spirit, she got modest success through the entire remaining decade on the tiny Arctic label, achieving the pop Best 40 once again in 1965 with “Sad, Sad Female.” In the first and mid-’70s, Mason toughened her persona significantly, singing about intimate like and infidelity using a frankness which was unusual for a lady spirit singer in tracks like “Bed and Panel,” “From His Girl for you,” and “Shackin’ Up.” Special spirit stayed her groove, and she continuing to write a few of her materials. But the creation, since it was throughout spirit within the ’70s, was even more funk-oriented, and sometimes Mason would interrupt her performing to provide some straight-talkin’ raps about love. Curtis Mayfield created her on the cover of Mayfield’s “Provide Me Your Like,” which restored her towards the pop Best 40 and R&B TOP in 1973; “From His Female for you” and “Shackin’ Up” had been also solid spirit sellers within the middle-’70s. After departing Buddha Information in 1975, she just dented the graphs regularly, with “I Am YOUR LOVER, She Is YOUR LADY” (1978), “Another Guy” (1984), and several other singles.
