1988 George Benson – Twice The Love

Twice the Love is the 1988 studio album of George Benson, recorded in collaboration with six different production teams. The two main singles off of the record were the title track Twice the Love and the Curtis Mayfield song Let’s Do It Again which was a #1 hit for The Staple Singers in 1975. Music videos were shot for both of them. The songs You’re Still My Baby and Let Go are instrumentals. The CD bonus track Let Go was originally released on the B-side of the Let’s Do It Again single. The songwriters are only credited on the label of the vinyl, but not on the CD printing, thus the CD editions are completely without songwriting credits.
