Perhaps no babysitter in history got a bigger break than Eva Narcissus Boyd, who babysat for songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin. It was early 1962 when they were inspired by a dance Little Eva was doing around the house and wrote a song called "The Locomotion". Originally meant for Dee Dee Sharp, returning home one day Carole and Gerry found their babysitter singing it. They liked what they heard, so they rushed her into the studio, with King doing the backing vocals. Little Eva was only sixteen when "The Locomotion" hit #1. Her salary as the Goffins' babysitter was $35 dollars a week. Her earnings from "The Locomotion" were reported to be around thirty thousand dollars. She appeared on television shows and in numerous magazines. She performed live in the U. S. and did several tours of England. Remembered by most as a one hit wonder Little Eva was more than that and her debut album on the DIMENSION label reveals one of the funniest yet talented artists of the "girl groups" era. Also features her second chart smasher "Keep Your Hands Off My Baby", later covered on stage by the Beatles.

Artist description "Little Eva"

Little Eva,

born Eva Narcissus Boyd on June 29, 1945, in Bellhaven, North Carolina, moved to New York while in her teens. Here, legend insists, she was baby-sitting for Carole King and Gerry Goffin when they asked her to re-cord a new song they had written. The result was 'The Locomotion'. With the Cookies, of 'Chains' fame, as back-up singers, it went to No. 1 in 1962.

A string of computerized dance hits followed, including 'Keep Your Hands Off My Baby', 'Let's Turkey Trot' and 'Old Smokey Locomotion', all on the Dimension label, on which Eva's sister, Idaho Boyd, recorded 'Hula Hooping'. Despite several far more soulful records (on Amy, Spring and others), Eva didn't have any more big hits.
