Speak Her Name 45 by David & Jonathan

Speak Her Name  David & Janathan

Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway were best known as songwriters but they had a lot of incarnations throughout their career. One of them was as the recording duo of David & Jonathan. They had one big hit in the United States with a cover of the Lennon and McCartney song, “Michelle.” It reached number 18 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100.

Their follow-up release was “Speak Her Name.” It was another gentle pop/folk tune with some nice harmonies but it received no chart action leaving the duo one hit wonders in the United States.

They would contine writing and be a part of such groups as Blue Mink, White Plains, and The Pipkins.
