Till I loved you - Barbra Streisand and Don Johnson

'Till I loved you' was a duet recorded by Barbra Streisand and Don Johnson, which appeared on Streisand's 1988 album of the same name. The track was produced by Phil Ramone. The single reached number 16 in the UK singles chart, number 25 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 4 in the Dutch Top 40. I bought the 3" cd-single when this single came out, and now, two decades later, I finally own the 7" single as well.

The tenor Placido Domingo and Jennifer Rush recorded a cover version of the song in 1989.

Tell it like it is - Don Johnson

Don Johnson is best known for his acting work in the television series Miami Vice. Once you are famous in America, you can do pretty much whatever you want, so mister Johnson opted for a singing career, despite not having a very remarkable voice.

'Tell it like it is' is a song written by George Davis and Lee Diamond and recorded several times by different artists, to varying degrees of success. It was first recorded by Aaron Neville, who released the song as a solo single in 1966. It became a hit, peaking at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 in early 1967. Don Johnson's version was only released in the UK and Europe to reasonable success: the single peaked at number 6 in the Netherlands.

My collection: 7" single no. 1051
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 17, 1989
Cost: 1 pound
Tracks: 'Tell it like it is' / 'Angel city'
