Title: Front Row Center
Artists: Barbara McNair
Catalogue No.: SEPIA 1148
Barcode: 5055122111481
Release Date: 11 May 2010

After winning a talent competition on television hosted by Arthur Godfrey, Barbara McNair became well known from her numerous TV appearances and supper club engagements. She was then spotted by entertainment journalist Walter Winchell who praised the talented Barbara in his syndicated columns. This resulted in a recording contract with Coral Records. In total her output for Coral was seven singles and an album recorded in 1959, "Front Row Center" which featured twelve Broadway showstoppers. All of these early recordings are included here with the twelve album tracks in stereo. 

Barbara made her movie debut in 1968 in the film, "If He Hollers, Let Him Go" where she caught the attention of the movie-going public with her much-publicized nude sequences in the crime drama, and donned a nun's habit alongside Mary Tyler Moore in "Change of Habit" (1969), Elvis Presley's last feature film. She also portrayed Sidney Poitier's wife in "They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!" (1970) and in the sequel, "The Organization" (1971).

Amongst her many "firsts" Barbara McNair became one of the first black women to host her own television variety show in America; in 1969 she hosted a syndicated musical variety series, "The Barbara McNair Show" when few black women were given such opportunities.
