SHREM'S INSTITUTE OF LOST CLASSICS: "GIMME YOUR LOVE" - Aretha Franklin with James Brown + "DIAMONDS" - Herb Alpert feat. Janet Jackson

Two sensational and sadly forgotten 1980's collaborations. The Queen of Soul with The Father of Funk, Aretha Franklin and James Brown and their fantastically energetic duet "Gimme Your Love". And then the trumpet maestro Herb Alpert and Janet Jackson's hidden vocal contribution to his funk-divine "Diamonds". Both tracks - absolute gems in my books.
