A brief superhero team-up by Shiptown’s Noah Biggs, The Soul Duo consisted of Tidewater talent show queen Ida Sands and veteran R&B shouter Joe Webster from The Anglos doing their best Otis & Carla. Their June 1969 debut paired the Biggs-Sands-Webster original “This Is Your Day” with a loose and funky take on Freddie Scott’s 1966 Bert Berns-penned smash “Are You Lonely For Me.” Jerry Blaine’s Manhattan-based Josie Records gave it a perfunctory national release, but the record barely made it out of the promo department. Their sophomore release ended up as a series of lasts. Almost an anti-Christmas song, “Just A Sad Xmas” didn’t exactly evoke the festive spirit of the season, marking instead a fitting end for the short-lived twosome.
