Eddie & Ernie

Eddie and Ernie were an American soul music duo in the 1960s, comprising Eddie Campbell (born William Edgar Campbell, 23 December 1940, Marion County, Texas – died 10 July 1994, Los Angeles) and Ernie Johnson Jnr. (born 22 October 1943, Grimes County, Texas – died 20 August 2005, Phoenix, Arizona)
They sang in gospel groups before working as backing vocalists from the early-1960s. Based in Phoenix, Arizona, they made their first recordings as a duo (initially as Ernie & Eddie) in 1963, also making solo recordings. Although they recorded for several labels, some quite large such as Columbia, Chess, and Buddah, they never had any significant chart success, their biggest R&B hit being Time Waits For No One on Eastern records in 1965. In 1971, they both joined a local group, Phoenix Express.
Their recordings later became popular with aficionados such as Dave Godin, on whose Deep Soul compilations several of their tracks appear. A compilation CD was released on Ace Records (UK) in 2002.

    Hello, my name is Christopher CoShea Campbell and I'm the son of Eddie Campbell of Eddie and Ernie. I am also a professional artist and I have recorded a cover of Eddie and Ernie's song "Standing at the Crossroads". There is an article about me where I was interviewed for the music site The Hook and Sling. The author included a divShare soundlink of my cover which has been getting some radio airplay. Here is the article/song... Would it be possible if you included my version along with the rest of your Eddie and Ernie playlist? I can be reached by email that you have on file. Thank you for your time and consideration, Christopher CoShea Campbell
