The duo left Atco in the late '60s, staging a comeback on Kapp/MCA Records in the early '70s, which means latter-day hits such as"All I Ever Need Is You" and "A Cowboy's Work Is Never Done" aren't here, but chances are most listeners won't even notice, since all the big songs are here: "I Got You Babe," "Laugh at Me," "Baby Don't Go," "Just You," "But You're Mine," "What Now, My Love?," "The Revolution Kind," "Little Man," and "The Beat Goes On." True, the collection may run a little long for some tastes,...

    SONNY & CHER - THE BEAT GOES ON

    ALTHOUGH I DID ENJOY ''I GOT YOU BABE''. CANNOT AGREE WITH CHERYL THAT THIS IS THE BEST! I DO HOWEVER FEEL THAT CHER'S VOICE SOUNDED BETTER IN THE EARLY DAYS OF HER CAREER ESPECIALLY WITH SONNY.

    the best team singing team ever

    I think Sonny and Cher are the best singing team to ever come along at the time the world needed them most. There performances or songs will never leave us. Cher's still here to entertaine us and what a great performer she is/ in all she does. I think each time she does a concert Sonny's smiling and holding her hand. I believe in my heart of hearts someday Sonny and Cher will rock again together. God Bless them both and their talents.
