Avant & Keke Wyatt - Your Precious Love

This beautiful remake of the great duet by Marvin & Tammi is a must-hear. While some of the flavors of the original remain, these guys add their own selves to the tune deep enough that it is much more than a tribute. The album, A Tribute To R&B – The Collector’s Edition, must be available somewhere, I received a promo with no sales info. Usually I ignore those – what’s the use of talking about something you can’t find? I imagine this will come out soon enough – as soon as I get info, I’ll let you know. It includes tributes from Usher, Alicia Keyes, Dru Hill, K-Ci, JoJo and more. The shoutout tune on this album is also by Keke – a sincere reinvention of Patti’s If Only You Knew. Keke Wyatt
