Love on a Two Way Street

Originally recorded by Lezli Valentine (1968).
Hit versions by The Moments (US #3/R&B #1 1970), Stacy Lattisaw (US #13/R&B #2 1981).

From the wiki: “Written by Sylvia Robinson and Bert Keyes in 1968. ‘Love on a Two-Way Street’ was originally recorded by Lezli Valentine, an artist signed to All Platinum, the record label that Sylvia Robinson co-owned with her husband, Joe. The song was then recorded by The Moments (‘Don’t Cry Out Loud‘) as filler for their 1968 album Not on the Outside, But on the Inside, Strong!, released on Stang Records, a subsidiary of All Platinum.

“Two years later, in March 1970, the Robinsons decided to release the song as a single. The Moments’ ‘Love on a Two Way Street’ went on to become one of the biggest R&B hits of that year and the highest-charting single of the The Moments’ career.

“In 1981, Stacy Lattisaw covered ‘Love on a Two-Way Street’, peaking at #2 on the R&B chart.”
