#106 Pop

You may remember Carla for her 1967 chart topping duet (#2 R&B, #26 Pop) with Otis Redding, “Tramp,” but she was also William Bell’s third duet partner.

“I Can’t Stop,” composed by Carla and William Bell,  is another track from the 1968 William Bell  “Duets” LP.

In 1969, the song also appeared on another Stax album of duets that included all of the  Stax Artists. The LP, “Boy Meets Girl,”  did not do very well on the charts.

I came to know the songs when the LP was re-released by Stax in 2009 as “Classic Soul Duets: Boy Meets Girl.”

If you haven’t heard the set I  highly recommend it: real soul music at its best!

Musically Yours,
