FONTELLA BASS & TINA TURNER - POOR LITTLE FOOL


As I was deciding which record to feature today, it dawned on me that there are very few female DUO records from this era; certainly much less common than male soul duo's. What a treat that we hear two of the greatest female singers TOGETHER on this disc!

Driven along by their sublime vocals and some truly epic baritone guitar, this song is a superb example of the early sixties St. Louis sound.

from 1963...

This is definitly one of my favorite song of all time. I discovered it on an old rock'n'roll compilation and it immidiately chilled me. Thank you for posting it Derek.
I've always believed it was Ike & Tina who did that. I had no idea that the other voice was Fontella Bass. Thank's for that too.
