Little is known about the background of Barry Young. He was a singer specializing in impersonations of crooner Dean Martin when he was signed to Dot Records in 1966. Young recorded an old country standard, ‘One Has My Name (The Other Has My Heart)’, written in 1948 by Eddie Dean, Dearest Dean and Hal Blair. Young’s version made it to number 13 on the US pop charts. None of his later singles for Dot or other labels ever charted, although the album containing his one hit did make a showing. Young’s subsequent whereabouts is as much of a mystery as his past.
