"I'm Your Puppet" by James and Bobby Purify.

OK, back to the 60's (this was a suggestion from my sister Laura (Laurin) from Owings Mills, MD): The "Bobby" in this R&B duo was actually 2 persons - the 1st one was Robert Lee Dickey, a cousin of the founder and the 2nd one was Ben Moore, who took Robert's place when he became ill. Their biggest hit was an Oldham/Penn composition which peaked at #6 in '66, spent 14 wks. on the charts and sold over 1 million copies. Covered by, among others, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell and Sir Elton John. Duo? Hit?

Yesterday's answer: "Let It Be Me". Great tune. Saw the Everly Brothers in Vegas a few years ago - amazing! Don can still hit those notes in the stratosphere!
