August 10, 2017 Records of the Day

You might think the “little girl with the big voice” was coined for multi-hit maker Brenda Lee but in this case it refers to Timi Yuro, an early Blue-eyed Soul singer. Her first big hit “Hurt” reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961. In 1962 she hit big again with “What’s a Matter Baby (Is it Hurting You).” Elvis was one of her biggest fans and recorded her signature song “Hurt” in 1976. The Elvis single with picture sleeve can get you $40.00. The album “Hurt!!! by Timi Yuro was released on Liberty records in 1961 and can sell for $100.00 today.
