Patience and Prudence

The sister duo Patience and Prudence reached the very best Ten in 1956 using a fluke hit, the ghostly “Tonight You Participate in Me personally.” The daughters of a specialist musician — Tag McIntyre, who followed Frank Sinatra on piano through the middle-’40s — Tolerance and Prudence McIntyre apparently learned the tune while at summertime camp in 1955 (if they had been nine and 12, respectively). Their dad recognized it being a Billy Rose strike from several years previous, and was impressed more than enough to build up the agreement as a demonstration designed for cabaret vocalist Lisa Kirk (wife of Robert Wells). McIntyre also documented a edition with Tolerance and Prudence’s vocals, totally for personal factors, but provided a dub to studio room friend Ross Bagdasarian, who handed down the record to Si Waronker of Liberty Information. Waronker treasured the song, therefore Tolerance and Prudence agreed upon to Liberty and recut the tune with overdubs to strengthen their ethereal vocals, after that watched because the record soared to number 4 nationally (with many cover versions ultimately arriving along). After executing on Perry Como’s tv program, they chose for the follow-up one “Gonna GO ALONG Without AT THIS POINT YOU” (previously a minor strike for Teresa Brewer), which simply missed the very best Ten afterwards in 1956. The duo documented several even more singles — including a pairing with fellow Liberty action Mike Clifford and many singles for the Chattahoochee label — but hardly ever reached the graphs once again. They reunited for the 1978 performance on the Dick Clark feature, and gained a surprisingly lengthy lease on lifestyle after their music had been used in a set of movies, 1999’s Election (“Gonna GO ALONG Without AT THIS POINT YOU”) and 2001’s Ghost Globe (“A Smile along with a Ribbon”).
