McCarthy & Bonnie - What The Brothers sang - 2013


For artists such as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Dawn McCarthy, who are mostly associated with alt-folk and indie-rock, a full album homage to the Everly Brothers initially comes as a surprise.


The Everly Brothers sold millions of records with pop songs such as 'All I Have To Do Is Dream' and 'Wake up Little Susie' but they had their chart-topping thunder stolen by the Beatles and retreated back into their first love, country music, to great acclaim. The 13 tunes included on What the Brothers Sang come from that later period, and 'So Sad' and 'Devoted to You' were the only chart singles... 405


Tracklist:
01 – Breakdown
02 – Empty Boxes
03 – Milk Train
04 – What Am I Living For
05 – My Little Yellow Bird
06 – Devoted To You
07 – Somebody Help Me
08 – So Sad
09 – Omaha
10 – It’s All Over
11 – Poems, Prayers, and Promises
12 – Just What I Was Looking For
13 – Kentucky
