Various Artists - The Brit-Everlys' Sound - 'Wish We Could Sing Like Phil & Don!'

£8.99
No tax
JASCD1187

Within just months of THE EVERLY BROTHERS first hits, in 1957, their influence was already being felt.

Duos, trios and groups were queueing up to try and sound like them, while their own releases were frequently covered by U.K. artists, some rather more successfully than others.

This compilation presents three dozen valiant British attempts to capture The Everlys' zeitgeist, and it's a surprisingly enjoyable listening experience.

Featured artists range from big names like Billy Fury, The Brook Brothers, The Allisons, etc., to the wholly obscure, e.g. Lee & Jay Elvin, The Bird Twins, The Day Brothers, etc..

There's a few hits here, including a couple of biggies, but many of these were 45s that fell just below the radar, didn't quite make it, and are now collectors' rarities.

Of course, several of these sides are unfeasibly rare, and have never previously appeared on CD.
