Billy Freemantle

Male & Female Duettes

Recommended Posts

From what I can gather there seem to be several posters who don't appreciate R&B too much. But even they would have agree that Betty Lou & Bobbby Adams produced magic when they did Dr Truelove.

Betty Lou must have one of the most interesting voices ever put on wax in the 60s.

First of all; Betty Lou one of the most interesting voices on vinyl?? whistling.gif One of the worst bloody hell the woman can't sing a note! :D (brill record though)

This has to be one of the best M&F duettes:

Beverly & Duane - "You belong to me"/"Love" - Brown Bomber - Rare, Detroit, 2 good sides, nice looking label... Need I say more?? :wicked:

Billy :D

Vernon and Jewel recorded some great tracks in this genre.

Another tremendous slice of male/female duet-soul, in a seventies ballad style is John Freeman and Almeta Latimore's electrifying "I Need You" on VR. You can almost hear sparks fly by the fade-out.

I've always preferred Marvin & Tammi's version of "Baby I Need Your Loving" to the 4 Tops: so much more exciting than dreary old Levi Stubbs and co. (I'll probably get strung up for saying this.)

I didn't say she had a 'good' voice, Billy. I said she had an interesting voice. Although the recording is a 60s one, voice has the qualities of a woman from a much earlier period . You hear voices like this on the field recordings that the Lomaxes made.

To my mind it's this that helps to make it a brilliant record.
