Format: Audio CD
Eva Narcissus Boyd - aka Little Eva - had four charted singles on her own and one shared with Big Dee Irwin in the early Sixties. And then she, like so many others, got run over by the runaway bus known as The British Invasion, beginning in 1964.

Born on June 29, 1945 (some references say 1943) in Bellhaven, North Carolina, her first big hit came with Dimension Records, launched in 1962 in New York City by Don Kirshner and Al Nevins specifically to showcase the "Girl Group Sound" and the song-writing efforts of the team of Goffin/King. Their composition, The Loco-Motion, was literally handed to Eva as they were well aware of her vocal talents from periods where she was employed as their baby-sitter.

Aided admirably by the backing of The Cookies, then also recording for Dimension, it shot to # 1 on both the Billboard Pop Hot 100 and R&B charts in August 1962 b/w He's The Boy on Dimension 1000. Later that year she was back with Keep Your Hands Off My Baby which peaked at # 6 R&B/# 12 Hot 100 in December, b/w Where Do I Go? On Dimension 1003.

The hits continued in 1963 when Let's Turkey Trot (based on the same melody as Little Girl Of Mine - a 1956 hit for The Cleftones) rose to # 16 R&B/# 20 Hot 100 in March, b/w Down Home 9unfortunately not included here). Soon after, another Dimension artist, Big Dee Irwin, had a # 38 Hot 100 in July with a cover of the old Bing Crosby hit, Swingin' On A Star, which included backing vocal by Little Eva) on Dimension 1010 b/w a solo effort by Irwin. Eva then closed out her hit singles career with her version of the old Folk tune On Top Of Old Smokey called Old Smokey Locomotion, a # 48 Hot 100 also in July b/w Just A Little Girl. Strangely, however, neither song made any impact whatsoever on the R&B charts.
