Doris Duke (the singer, not the tobacco heiress) is getting married out of spite, and frankly, I think she’s making a big mistake:
“Congratulations Baby” Doris Duke 1969
This classic track is from 1969’s I’m a Loser — Duke’s first solo album after singing backup for the likes of Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Carolyn Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis, Jr., among many others.
Album recorded & mixed at Capricorn Studios, Macon GA – with string overdub done in Philly. Arranged & produced by Jerry Williams, Jr. (a.k.a., Swamp Dogg) with help from the following musicians:
Piano: Paul Hornsby & Jerry Williams, Jr.
Organ: Paul Hornsby
Guitar: Jesse Carr
Bass: Robert Popwell
Drums: Johnny Sandlin
Note: Duane Allman did play on these sessions, as well, but not this particular tune.
