Released in 1981, "Just the Two of Us" is from Grover Washington, Jr.'s Grammy- winning LP "Winelight." Co- written and featuring lead vocals by Bill Withers, the tune also won a Grammy Award for best R and B song.

It was Grover Washington, Jr.'s only Top 40 hit... and Bill Withers' last Top 40 hit.

Fun Fact: "Just the Two of Us" was revived in the movie "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me", performed by Dr. Evil and Mini- Me!

Philly Fun Fact: Washington's love of basketball, especially the 76ers, prompted him to dedicate "Let It Flow", a track from "Winelight", to Dr. J (Julius Erving)!
