Penny and the Quarters and Friends

Penny and the Quarters and Friends

The songs were recorded sometime between 1970 and 1975 at either Harmonic Sounds Studio or at the home of studio co-owner Clem Price in Columbus.

Artist: Penny & The Quarters

Genre: Soul

Label: Numero Group

Release date:


You and Me by Penny and the Quarters simply refused to stay lost. For 40 years, the song sat silent in a box of reels before heartthrob Ryan Gosling selected it to star in 2010’s indie weeper Blue Valentine. The power of the track set off an international treasure hunt in pursuit of the mysterious artists behind it. Since then, “You and Me” has soundtracked thousands of weddings, spawned hundreds of YouTube covers, and tugged heartstrings for scores of advertisements and films. Fifteen years after Eccentric Soul: The Prix Label became Numero’s worst selling compilation, we’ve reanalyzed the tapes and selected 11 equally-as-fascinating rehearsals caught by engineer Clem Price in Columbus, Ohio, in 1970.

About the artist

Penny & the Quarters is a "lost" soul band that came to prominence in 2010 after an unreleased demo of its song "You And Me" was used in the film Blue Valentine. Teenagers at the time, the members of Penny & the Quarters were invited to audition by Harmonic Sounds Studio in Columbus, Ohio, recording three demo songs in all. The group consisted of Nannie "Penny" Coulter (Sharpe), and her three brothers, Johnny, Donald and William
