April Stevens and Nino Tempo: "I Love How You Love Me" and "Hey Baby"
An outstanding top tune in my view, sung by a popular brother/sister duo of the mid-sixties who started out life in Niagra Falls, New York. I have to admit it's the bagpipes that I really dig most of all here in the song above, with honorable mention to the voice of the charming April Stevens (1929-). Nino Tempo was no musical slouch either; he is a versatile musician who also had an acting career in films like "Breakfast at Tiffanys" and played alto sax at Carnegie Hall!
Their biggest hit as a duo (April had her own singing career as a single performer) was their Grammy winning version of the old standard "Deep Purple". It holds the sad distinction of hitting the Number One song slot on the Billboard charts the same week as the President Kennedy Assassination. This next tune gives us a chance to see April and Nino performing on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand" with another standard, "Hey Baby".
