They had some great hit singles in the mid sixties.

I'm not sure what other three "hits" another reviewer was referring to, but the duo of Dale (Houston) and Grace (Broussard) - both from Louisiana - are only credited with three Billboard Pop Hot 100 charters in 1963/64, all with Sam Montalbano's Baton Rouge labels Michelle and Montel.

Nevertheless their first was quite the debut hit! It apparently came about when, after teaming up (both had been playing gigs in around Louisiana for a while before they met), they hooked up with Sam and, while casually jamming around his piano as Sam dozed, Dale launched into a Specialty Records tune he remembered from 1957 by another duo, Don & Dewey, called I'm Leaving It Up To You.

Upon hearing this, Sam allegedly jumped up and yelled "that's it - that's a hit!" Whether true or just another Urban Legend will likely never be known, but the fact is, Dale & Grace recorded it in late 1963 and it was pressed by Sam, first on Michelle 921 and then on Montel 921 (a pattern that would continue for reasons known only to Sam) b/w That's What I Like About You. And it just took off as he supposedly predicted, peaking at # 1 Hot 100 (where it stayed for 3 weeks), # 1 Adult Contemporary (2 weeks at the top), AND # 6 R&B.

It was also the # 1 hit in the nation on November 22, 1963 - the day Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. The song's appeal was then underlined in 1974 when another duo, Donny & Marie Osmond, again took it to # 1 Adult Contemporary and # 4 Hot 100.

For Dale & Grace, that was a tough act to follow, but they came close in early 1964 when Stop And Think It Over rose to # 3 Adult Contemporary and # 8 Hot 100 b/w Bad Luck on Michelle 923/Montel 922.

I expected this CD to uneven and have only a few good tracks but I was totally wrong. There is not a bad song here and all are very well produced and singing is great. If you are a fan of 60's music and particularly if you are from the south, you will love this music. Happy Happy Birthday Baby, So Fine, What Am I living For, and especially Cool Water are as good or better than original artist's version.

Okay! Finally Dale and Grace on CD. They had some great hit singles in the mid sixties. They sounded country, but I would put them in the pop category. There is some filler in this CD but in order to get all their hits and they charted six of them, I would suggest getting this one.
