Barbara Dickson (born Sept. 27, 1947) is a Scottish folk/pop vocalist and actress who first entered showbiz in the late 1960s. Partnered with Glaswegian guitarist/vocalist Archie Fisher, they issued back-to-back albums together circa 1969/70. Her debut solo album, Do Right Woman, appeared in 1970 on Decca. In 1974, she contributed to the cast recording of the Willy Russell Beatles-themed musical John Paul George Ringo … & Bert, which appeared on Robert Stigwood’s RSO label, as did her 1976/77 albums Answer Me and Morning Comes Quickly.
In 1980, Dickson teamed with Cliff Richard/Leo Sayer producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Alan Tarney. The first results of this union, The Barbara Dickson Album, yielded the gigantic ballad “January-February.” Tarney’s services were retained for two further albums by the singer. In 1985, Dickson dueted with fellow dramatic singer Elaine Paige on a U.K. chart-topping rendition of “I Know Him So Well,” drawn from the Benny Andersson/Tim Rice/Björn Ulvaeus musical Chess.
