In researching P&P for this post, I learned that they're twins! How appropriate! Turns out that they are the daughters of Chicago DJ Lucky Cordell; himself a very powerful jock at Chicago's WVON ("the Voice Of The Negro"- probably the most influential soul station in the nation during the '60's).
Turns out Pat & Pam were VERY young at the time of these records, but one would never know, given the confidence of their performance.
Both sides are glorious; excellent songs, fantastic Chicago soul backing, and a great vibe; but you know what I love about this record more than anything? I love the fact that the girls' pitch wavers slightly at times! It's so real, so beautiful and so human.
If "I Love You, Yes I Do" does not melt your heart into a warm puddle, you've reached the wrong site, baby.
