YES that’s Roger Eagle with Millie Small who had a number two hit in the UK with My Boy Lollipop in 1964. Rumours at the time suggested that Rod Stewart played the harmonica solo although there have been other contenders mentioned since. It was a cutesy record, she was a one hit ‘blue beat’ wonder although it owed more to a pop song than reggae. Roger booked her to apear at the Twisted Wheel in 1964.

She did appear later as a center-fold in Mayfair magazine.
