THE EVERLY BROTHERS - LONELY WEEKENDS


THE EVERLY BROTHERS - 'Lonely Weekends' (Warner Bros W 1578) March 1965

This early 1965 release saw the Everly's recording R'n'B songs written by the likes of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles and Leiber & Stoller but with their touch of harmony of course. Their versions of 'That'll Be The Day', 'Mabellene' and 'Slippin' And Slidin' are particularly good.

Most interesting for me is their recording of Charlie Rich's 'Lonely Weekend' which I know from The Remains. The album was recorded in Nashville.
