Steve Mancha and Wilburt Jackson on Harvey Fuqua's label

The Two Friends cut one single for Harvey Fuqua's HPC label in 1960 "Just Too Much To Hope For" b/w "Family Reunion." Most Motown collectors are probably more familiar with the version of "Too Much to Hope For" cut in 1968 for Motown Records by Tammi Terrell. HPC was a short lived label and Harvey Fuqua went on to form Harvey and TRI- Phi Records with Gwen Gordy. As a duo Clyde and Wilburs days were numbered as Gwen and Harvey put all their promoting energy into another newly formed pairing, Johnny Bristol and Jackey Beavers, who recorded surprisingly enough as Johnny and Jackie! It was through Gwen Gordy that, after struggling with sluggish sales of their labels, that they merged with Berry Gordy's expanding Motown stable. Part of this package deal meant that the artists connected with Harvey and TRI Phi were also brought under contract to Motown. Thus began the 'Motown' years of Two Friends, Johnny and Jackie, Jr Walker and The All-stars, The Detroit Spinners and many more.
