Come On and See Me (Tammi Terrell)

15 JUNE 1966

Tammi Terrell's 'Come On and See Me' was at its peak position of #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 during this week. It also reached #25 on the R&B charts.

Tammi had a short, tragic life (she died due to a brain tumour at just 24) but achieved solid chart success with a dozen duets with Marvin Gaye. This record came just prior to the formation of that great partnership, at a time when her greatest national chart success had been a #72 in 1965. Written by Harvey Fuqua and Johnny Bristol, 'Come On and See Me' was modest Motown fare, slightly upbeat but not A-list material, although there is no denying Tammi's talent.
