One of the great rhythm and blues duets ever! Dinah Washington and Brook Benton did a couple great ones, including thier biggest hit as a duo,"Baby, You've Got What It Takes". In 1960, they followed up that hit with this one, which went to Number One on the Billboard R &B Charts in June of 1960, as well as a top ten overall Billboard hit.
Dinah Washington (1934-1963)--who could be a bit of a "hand-full" with producers and agents--at first didn't want to team with Benton. According to the JazzWax website she wanted to remain a solo performer, having paid her dues since she was teenager. But her manager convinced her to give a duet the chance.
The banter on this recording--about Benton coming in on her spot in the song, and Dinah's playful replies--definately show they have a chemistry, don't you think?
