Left and right song
Hi there,

I am looking for a sixties/seventies song where a woman is singing on the left speaker and a man is singing on the right speaker. They sing lines like:" I am here on the right with the piano" That's than followed by a short piano solo also on the right side... It is repeated with all kinds of instuments, like guitars etc. In the end of the song they come together in middle of the speakerspectrum...
Does anyone have an idea?

CHeers,

Hajee

Left and right song
Your question reminded me of this song. It's similar in the way that after the instruments are announced, a solo follows. This song was a #1 hit from 1968 so your song is probably a 60's song in my opinion.

Copy & paste this link to hear "Tighten Up"

I posted your song on the 80'sxchange because there are posters over there from the Netherlands.

I believe the song is from the 60's because of songs like "Tighten Up" by Archie Bell and The Drells & Mamas & Papas playing with left & right channels like the song "Words Of Love"
