The 'Thelma and Jerry' album is a personal favourite of mine. I bought it on release when I was a teenager, after first picking up a single of 'It's A Lifetime Thing' in a bargain bin and loving it. Have enjoyed listening to it ever since and bought it on US CD over 20 years ago. Sound quality for the album is very good (as was the old US CD). Interestingly, the first track 'Only the Beginning' is a good 2 minutes longer on this re-issue than on vinyl and original CD, a fact not referred to in the informative booklet. The extra 2 minutes is largely 'live'-type banter, and to be honest you can understand why it was cut, because it is a bit annoying on repeated listening! Favourite track on 'Thelma and Jerry' album a superb rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'Joy Inside My Tears'.
The 'Two to One' album is a bit of a curiosity, as there are only two duets (not selected for the first album), the balance being 3 miscellaneous solo cuts from each singer. Obviously, much less cohesion, but still first class vocals. One Thelma track, 'Don't Pity Me' is particularly good. You know from the first few bars it is a Van McCoy production, and style-wise it makes rather a lovely companion piece to David Ruffin's 'Walk Away From Love'. Sound quality for the 'Two to One' tracks also excellent.
This CD would have been well worth the money just for the 'Thelma and Jerry' album. As presented it is outstanding value. Cannot recommend highly enough.
