My introduction to double-tracking came in 1955 when Peggy Lee
demonstrated the technique on the Disneyland TV show. She sang the
parts of the two cats Si and Am on "the Siamese Cat Song"
from the movie "Lady and the Tramp." They used two tape
decks, recording first to one and then bouncing to the other while she
sang the second part.
Of course by then I'd already heard a lot of Les Paul and Mary
Ford records, but I didn't have a clue about the technique.
Other double-trackers from the early '60s included Dick and
Deedee ("The Mountain's High"- 1961) and Jan and Dean
("Linda" - 1963).
