EVERLY BROTHERS MEDLEY: "ROCK 'n' ROLL MUSIC/The End (Beatles, not Doors) If I Were A Carpenter/ The Thrill Is Gone/ Walk Right Back" (2/6/70) MRJYN - 123video
THE EVERLY BROTHERS were getting a 2nd (or 3rd) wind. Roots music was back in style & Johnny Cash had one of the country's most popular TV shows. Don & Phil were actually Johnny's summer replacement show, which was the same as the title of this set. Barnaby had reissued the long out-of-print Cadence sides & Warners just had the hits packages in print, so this was a kind of updating of the catalog, done live 2/6/70. Most interesting is a 18 min medley including Rock'n'Roll Music amidst such tunes as The End (Beatles, not Doors), If I Were A Carpenter & The Thrill Is Gone. And in listening to Walk Right Back, you can hear how Neil Young cribbed it for Harvest Moon!
I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITES. I CALLED THIS AMPHETAMINE SOMETHING OR OTHER ON YT, BUT I HAD IT HEAR FIRST AND THE DUTCH SEEM TO LIKE IT TOO. BUT THE EVERLY FANS WENT BERSERK. IT REMINDS ME OF X.
OH, YEAH, DID YA'LL HEAR THAT EXENE ANNOUNCED ON HER WEBSITE THAT SHE HAS MS?
