>Two Brothers – One Song


>

Jimmy and David Ruffin sounded fantastic, singing together. But both were at their best, of course, when each one did his own thing. One of my favorite David Ruffin leads is I Could Never Love Another, but I also like Jimmy’s cover. Jimmy’s voice is slightly reminiscent of David’s, in my opinion; Jimmy’s got a more creamy (here we go) quality to his voice — it is rather mellow and sweet compared to David’s. But see for yourself:
