Please Be My Love is a duet by
George Jones and
Melba Montgomery. It was composed by Carl Sauceman and Monroe Fields and originally recorded by Carl Sauceman and The Green Valley Boys in 1960. This was Jones and Montgomery's third single but it was only a minor hit, peaking at #31 on the Billboard country singles chart. Like many Jones/Montgomery recordings, the song has a distinct
bluegrass flavor, which was atypical for Jones. Although they would release several more singles together, Jones and Montgomery would never again achieve the success they had with their
Top 5 smash 1963 smash "
We Must Have Been Out of Our Minds".
