From the wiki: “Written by Sylvia Robinson and Bert Keyes in 1968. ‘Love on a Two-Way Street’ was first recorded by Lezli Valentine, an artist signed to All Platinum, the record label that 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 label of All Platinum also created by Robinson. The Moments would later evolve into the vocal trio Ray, Goodman & Brown.
“Two years later, in March 1970, the Robinsons decided to release the Moments’ track as a single. It would go on to become one of the biggest R&B hits of that year and the highest-charting single of the The Moments’ career, hitting #1 on the R&B chart.
“In 1981, Stacy Lattisaw covered ‘Love on a Two-Way Street’, peaking in the Hot 100 Top-15 and at #2 on the R&B chart.”
