Two of a Kind (1982) Earl Klugh with Bob James. "Bob James performed the soft and gooey theme for the TV show "Taxi" (known as "Angela (theme from 'Taxi')." Hardly what you'd think of as a virtuoso performance in Jazz circles. But in his unbeatable matchup with Earl Klugh (the master behind "Dr. Macumba" and "Cabo Frio"), the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. From the hauntingly delicate strains of their opener ("The Falcon"), through the joyful strains of "Where I Wander," to the brilliant salute to Wes Montgomery (the aptly named finale "Wes"), this team does not fail to impress. This album dates from 1982, but still sounds fresh and sharp after 25+ years."

Reviews:

''Two of a Kind'' was a 1971 duet album by Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton. The album reached # 13 on the U.S. country albums charts. The album is unusual in that no single 45rpm releases were issued of any of the songs. (The track "The Pain of Loving You" was later released as the "B" side of "The Right Combination" from their 1972 album of the same name.)

"Curse of the Wild Weed Flower" is of note being an anti-marijuana song, one of the few country songs of the period to discuss drugs.

Parton later rerecorded "The Pain of Loving You" with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, as part of their 1987 ''Trio'' album.

Liner notes for the album are written by Don Howser, longtime announcer for The Porter Wagoner Show program. - Wikipedia
