Whatever happened to '70s soul and pop? Charles & Eddie remi

"I had to hunt for that ellusive song "Would I lie To You" until I found this debut album by Charles and Eddie. Though some would call them a one hit wonder, I think this debut album is outstanding. In addition to the mesmerizing hit, the song just before it "Can you believe this City?" clearly points to their roots. Openning with the two tone hypnotic vamp from "For What It's Worth" by the Buffalo Springfield, the duo immediately identify the timeperiod "It was the summer of Love...."
Cultural references are sprinkled into this seemingly autobiographical song "Scored me a copy of Marvin Gaye's 'Trouble Man'"... "Sly was on the radio singing "Que sara sara..." "There was a riot on the eastside..."
In short, this album drips the honey voices of the two logical successers of the late Marvin Gaye... In style, vocal range, and inspiration! Not to be missed.
I also like the fourth song on the album, and "Take It Easy On Me" is also mellow.
God, if you ever loved Marvin, you ought to invest the few dollars to pick this one up. You'll be glad you did!
What ever happened to Charles and Eddie? At least one more album, "Chocolate Milk".... but that is another story."

"WOW, I really, really, really love this album. Charles Pettigrew and Eddie Chacon are talented singers. Beautiful voices, great melodies and good musicians. Duophonic is a soul/pop/rock gem. One of the best albums of the 90s. In one word: AMAZING. My favourite song is "Hurt No More". Buy this CD right now! Five stars."
An overlooked funk soul classic

"Although Charles and Eddie seem to be relegated to the '1 Hit Wonder' status, their debut album is very good and if you enjoy 1970's riffs, wonderful singing and excellent melodies, you should buy this album. Definitely a great 'urban' album and effortlessly blends funk, soul and pop music. Still wonderful after 14 years. Their talents are missed!!"
