Eddie & Ernie - Lost Friends (CDKEND214)
Simply brilliant...a must buy for sure...this is one of the best CDs for ages and deserves a place on everyones shelves.
Tracks from Artco, Eastern (why no "I cant do it"?), Columbia ("Doggone it" is brill NS!), Shazam, Chess, Buddah, Revue, Ramco etc...and some mouth watering unissued material...surprised on how wonderful their version of "Lay lady lay" is...honest...and all thanks to Dave Godin that they recorded it according to Daves typically high-quality sleeve note!
NS, Deep, Sweet, Harmonies the lot.

amazon review :
Whew! I bought this recording without knowing much about Ernie and Eddie and without being familiar with the records. The fact that it was on the excellent Kent label meant that it wasn't too much of a risk.
Speculation turned to joy as great song after great song blew out the cobwebs in my hi-fi. I bought it thinking that there might be one or two gems, but it is packed with must-have soul songs. There is not one bad recording on this CD. I questioned the wisdom of putting on a cover version of "Tell it like it is", but it is a different song in the hands of these two experts.
