The list author says: "We're talkin' individual songs here, pretty much listed in my order of preference.The picture at left indicates one album/cd where you can find the song.Most of my very favorite artists are all friends who do many duets with each other in various combinations."
"Superb album of duets with Willie Nelson. The best is Rodney Crowell's gem TILL I GAIN CONTROL AGAIN, one of my fave love songs.Other fine versions are on albums by Emmylou, Crystal, Willie alone and Van Morrison. This CD will make you a fan of both Kimmie and Willie, if you aren't already."
"JUST A CLOSER WALK WITH THEE. Posthumous gospel duet with Willie and the deceased Patsy Cline. Absolutely terrific!! This and the song below are on my list of 'Christian Music For Those Who Find It Boring'."
"Title track by Rick Nelson and Dean Martin from the claustrophobic jail sequence in the great western RIO BRAVO. Rick sang a few bars at my request in Vegas. Finally found this after a 30-year search."
"My favorite recording of this classic(with Glen Campbell). The same album also has, I think, the best recording ever of LET IT BE ME. ELUSIVE DREAMS is on my List of STORY SONGS For The Time Capsule and also HEARTBREAKING SONGS"
"ACROSS THE BORDER, by Linda Ronstadt with Emmylou Harris. Technically maybe not really a duet. Linda leads this Springsteen song and Emmylou supplies harmonies and background vocals. But it's so mesmerizing, I had to include it."
"IMMORTALITY, with Celine Dion backed by the Bee Gees. My favorite Celine recording. If you ever see the documentary about the making of this recording, you see Celine's performance bring the writer Barry Gibb to tears."
"A few duets on this album with his then girfriend Nicolette Larson. His songs with her are for me his peak period.ALREADY ONE, GOING BACK, FOUR STRONG WINDS. And SAIL AWAY on 'Rust Never Sleeps' album (I think)."
"IF I NEEDED YOU(with Don Williams) is the best. Other good ones:ONLY THE HEART MAY KNOW with Dan Fogelberg, LOVIN'YOU FEELING AGAIN with Roy Orbison, GULF COAST HWY with Willie, and WILD MONTANA SKIES with John Denver."
"ISLANDS IN THE STREAM with Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Voted the most popular duet in country music history(CMT). Written by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, from this album produced and written by him."
