EVERLY CLASSICS - A LIVE TRIBUTE TO THE EVERLY BROTHERS

Harmony Trail

Road Records

Plays for 50 + minutes

HARMONY TRAIL’S LIVE EVERLY BROTHERS TRIBUTE

The CD we have been waiting for, and we know you have. 'Harmony Trail Live at Spakenburg' has been the working title for all these months. At our request Road Records decided to give the CD a more commercial title....a wise decision. A superb recording of a selection of Everly Brothers songs that the duo Harmony Trail performed live at our most recent Annual EBI Party, which in 1999 took place at Spakenburg (that's Volendam country), The Netherlands....and at their CD presentation on June 17th 2000. 

Everly Classics Live !

THE CD

Fred and Geoffrey, as most of you know, don’t especially go for the golden Everly hits, 'Bye Bye Love' or 'Dream' . On this CD you will find songs like 'The Doll House Is Empty' and ‘She Never Smiles Anymore’. And the sometimes millennium arrangements are an important added bonus. They don’t detract that much from the original, mind you, but it’s just that tiny little bit that can make a song sound fresh and new again.

THE SONGS

1. That’s Old Fashioned 
2. Born To Lose 
3. When Will I Be Loved 
4. Let It Be Me 
5. Don’t Ask Me To Be Friends 
6. Waiting For Dawn 
7. She Never Smiles Anymore 
8. The Dollhouse Is Empty 
9. Don’t Let Our Love Die 
10. Rip It Up 
11. Long Time Gone 
12. Why Worry 
13. Sing Me Back Home 
14. The Story Of Me 
15. Down In The Willow Garden 
16. Nothing Matters But You 
17. Lonely Street 
18. Kentucky

THE INLAY

The inlay of course was decorated with a full color photo by Martin Alberts. Again the info will show how much of an influence Everly Brothers International had on the product. We won’t remind you too often. Promise. It’s just so you all know that we are proud to be associated with this product.

Everly CD ROM

THE STORY (INCL. CD ROM)

Nothing earthshattering compilationwise here, if it wasn't for a neat little CD ROM that is included in this package. Please don't expect too much as the CD ROM only offers a limit amount of Everly info and pictures. It still is a nice extra though which contains a biography, discography, a screensaver (unfortunately only with text) and some pictures.

Oh, by the way the songs on this compilation (19 in total and with a pretty good sound quality) are only Cadence tracks, which makes it a little bit incomplete as far as The Story Of..........goes, don't you think ?

For people keen on getting their hands on the first ever Everly CD ROM please visit the Online Kentucky Shop.

Pop-music gems buried in BBC dispute

USA TODAY June 19th, 1998;

Way back in the 1960s, someone at the British Broadcasting Corp. had a brilliant idea. The government-controlled radio system could save money on tape and storage if it erased the sessions recorded by musicians in its studios. At roughly $9 per one-hour tape, the move could save thousands of dollars a year. But the short-sighted civil servant who approved the move may have given away millions of dollars in future revenue. The sessions erased included work by just about every prominent British and American musician of the day, including the Beatles, RollingStones, Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix.

Some music-loving BBC producers, however, didn't obey the order to erase everything. They made their own copies of some of the sessions, squirreled tapes away deep in the BBC storage areas, and generally saved what may be among the richest pop-music treasures ever recorded. Their thanks? Well, Bernie Andrews and Jeff Griffin, two of those producers, are now embroiled in a battle with the BBC, which has located some of the missing tapes and started to issue them commercially. The most recent fruit is The Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions, just out on Experience Hendrix/MCA Records. Andrews and Griffin say they should be paid for their producing work. The BBC differs, citing their full-time employment status as BBC engineers.

''There's only one side to the story, not my side or theirs,'' says John Willan, BBC director of music. ''They have claimed they should share in the commercial exploitation of any product in which they were employed as producers. (But) as far as we are aware, they have no rights in this matter at all.'' Although they won't come out and say it directly, Andrews and Griffin hinted recently that more gems have survived the tape erasures than the BBC now possesses ¯ music that may surface if proper compensation is forthcoming. Griffin says that 13 early Rolling Stones tracks recently discovered by the BBC are ''not all the tracks that are inexistence.'' Where is the rest? ''Well, a lot depends on the BBC's attitude to us as to how much of it exists,'' says Griffin. Adds Andrews: ''At the moment, there's a lot of tight-lippedness over who's got what. That's how it's going to stay all the time the BBC's attitude to us is like it is.'' Andrews recalls that the Rolling Stones had a tough time making it past the BBC's rigid auditioning service during the early '60s. It seems Mick Jagger had trouble with diction.

''I wanted to get the Stones in, obviously, and at that time Bo Diddley was due to come over to the U.K. to do a tour,'' Andrews recalls. ''And I couldn't use the American backing musicians because of work-permit problems. So I had to employ a British band to back him.'' Voila. The Stones, noted American blues fans, had a BBC gig, backing Bo. There was only one problem. ''Bo Diddley was trying to get Charlie Watts, the drummer, to do the Bo Diddley beat (the famous dum-da-dum-da-dum/da dum-dum that's launched countless songs). Bo went up behind Charlie Watts on the drum kit, he held both of his hands from the back and he said,''Come on. Like this.'' Watts, initially clumsy, finally picked up the beat. Diddley gradually took his hands away. ''OK. Hold that. Keep going on that,'' Andrews said, quoting Diddley. ''And he ran back to the vocal mike and carried on singing, and we recorded it.'' After the session, the Stones recorded four songs of their own ¯ the first music the band did for the service.

Recently, the BBC claims, it has located some of the famed ''lost'' tapes in its archives. Now starts the arduous rights-clearance process. It's not easy many of the bands captured on taperecorded for companies that no longer exist. Still, the BBC does hold the copyrights on those performances. If more works do surface, the music will be a treasure trove, as witnessed by Andrews' list of sessions. ''The only pop artists that I didn't work with were Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and the Doors,'' says Andrews. The lost ''stuff,'' as Griffin cryptically puts it, ''could be found in all sorts of places. . . . But it's going to be a bit of a difficult situation, I would think, until it's all sorted out.''
