The risquť Takes Two To Tango was Pearl Baileyís biggest record success, and the top ten hit is also the title of Retrospectiveís compilation of her very best recordings; from 1944 when she sang with Cootie Williamsí band (Tessí Torch Song), through to 1953 when her musical arranger was Don Redman (As Long As I LiveÖ). In fact the jazz influence is strong and the many fine jazz musicians featured include the likes of Taft Jordan and Charlie Shavers.
Pearlís bouncy personality is very much to the fore in a number of engaging duets with Frank Sinatra (A Little Learning Is A Dangerous Thing), Hot Lips Page (Baby, Itís Cold OutsideÖ) and Moms Mabley (Saturday Night Fish Fry).
