Album3: Susaye Greene & Scherrie Paine, Partners, Motown M7-920R1, 1979.

Susaye and Ray were lovers when she was a Raelette, from 1968 to 1975. After that she became part of The Supremes.
After The Supremes disbanded in 1977, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene released their debut album, Partners.

Guest vocals: “The Great Ray Charles As The Luvbug”. Susaye wrote the tune. Ray hardly sang on it, but created a funky ‘voice bed’ for Susaye’s melody.
