Episode 10: He Sang, She Sang – R&B Duos

He Sang, She Sang – R&B Duos_16-9

On this episode of Trick Bag, Neil digs into great male-female R&B duos of the ’50s and early ’60s. Some of these acts — like Los Angeles’ Gene and Eunice, New York’s Mickey and Sylvia, and New Orleans’ Shirley and Lee — found success on the charts and with the concert-going public. In other cases, these duos paired up for only a handful of recordings before going their separate ways, but not without making their mark on R&B history and leaving behind great musical treasures for future generations of R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll aficionados. Listen to this installment of Trick Bag for a double dose of excitement!
