BOBBY VEE – “YOU’RE A BIG GIRL NOW” (LIBERTY) 1968

COMMERCIAL POP RECORD BACKED BY THE STRANGERS

 

BOBBY VEE – “MAYBE JUST TODAY” / “YOU’RE A BIG GIRL NOW” (LIBERTY 56014) JANUARY 1968

For his first single release of 1968 Bobby Vee once more turned to Nashville songwriter Martha Sharp who had also penned hit massive Summer of ’67 hit “Come Back When You Grow Up.”

“Maybe Just Today” is a short, chart friendly ballad with Bobby’s usual solid and soulful vocals. There is female backing behind his group, The Strangers.

The self-penned B-side, “You’re A Big Girl Now” was a track on his 1967 Liberty album “Come Back When You Grow Up.”  

This number is notable for the smooth lead vocals, probably double-tracked, to produce that perfect harmony. It also sounds like he’s been listening to his Beach Boys records!
