VERNON & JEWEL - YOU CAN HAVE MY LOVING


This was the first record that Vernon (Garrett) and Jewel (Whittaker) recorded together; the married couple released a brilliant string of duets until Jewel's tragic death from cancer in the mid 60's.

Russell Jacquet (brother of Illinois Jacquet) was a trumpeter who was calling Oakland, CA home during the recording of this record; as Vernon & Jewel were based in both L.A and Oakland, it's sa safe bet that this record was recoded in Oakland.

And this record swings HARD.

from 1961...

Thanks for posting the odd R'N'R soul crossover on here.
