TAMLA RECORDS 1966 S 270
Take Two was a duet album by Motown label mates Marvin Gaye and
Kim Weston, released August 25, 1966 on the Motown's Tamla label.
The album was titled after its most successful selection, the Top 5
R&B/Top 20 Pop hit "It Takes Two", which was to this point Gaye's
most successful duet with another singer. The album also featured
the modest hit "What Good Am I Without You?".
Shortly after this album was released, Weston left Motown in a dispute
over royalties (coincidentally, Mary Wells had departed from Motown
two years prior after also recording a duets album - Together - with Gaye).
Weston's replacement as Gaye's duet partner was Tammi Terrell, who
recorded several successful hit singles with Gaye during the late 1960s.
