    One of the greatest duet pairings of all time. Their voices complimented each other perfectly on this remake of the 1960 Everly Brothers hit. “Let It Be Me” peaked at #14 in April 1969. That was the second single released from their 1968 duet album “Bobbie Gentry & Glen Campbell.” The first single “Less Of Me” was much less successful stalling at #44 in December 1968. Both songs might have done better chart-wise but they were competing with Glen’s solo career hits “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” during their respective chart runs.

    A third non-LP duet single “All I Have To Do Is Dream” was released in early 1970 and climbed to #6. Several duets by that duo remain unreleased in the Capitol vaults.

      Tastes differ and I don’t know that I would regard Campbell and Gentry as a great duo. This song, however, really worked well for Campbell and Gentry, nearly as well as it did for the Everly Brothers. (full disclosure – I am a big Everly Brothers fan and have found few cover versions of their songs that I consider better than the Everly originals)
