The Death of A Great Voice

It was sad today to hear that Phil Everly had died.  He and his brother were part of the sound in which my early puberty was immersed.  They defined harmony singing — at least until the Beach Boys came along. I loved their hair, their lyrics, their twang.

This clip is from the 1960 tour of Britain, which was possibly the first time I had heard them.  The back up band, by the way, is Buddy Holly’s Crickets.
