I Know My First Name Is Stephen
That’s an interesting observation. I’ve never thought of that but yeah, as great a song as it is, their signature vocal harmony sound is completely missing...from most of the album when I come to think of it:The biggest comment I heard from friends was that it had voices added besides their own. I think people like their own overdubbing and actually their own songs better.
B’Wana She No Home - Richard and Karen (oohs and aahs only)
All You Get From Love Is A Love Song - Karen, other backing singers, no Richard
I Just Fall In Love Again - choir
Don’t Cry For Me Argentina - choir
Sweet Sweet Smile - Richard and Karen
Two Sides - Karen only
Man Smart Woman Smarter - Karen only
Calling Occupants - Richard and Karen (mainly oohs and aahs)
Even on the tracks featuring them both, the sound is nowhere near what it was in their heyday. There’s little of the multilayered, stacked vocal sound we heard on the first four albums.
