Here They Come, They're Cathy's Clowns

Dropped "A Date With The Everly Brothers" on the turntable today and wondered why I have waited so long to do so. This album is really cool. It has the unique and classic Everly Brothers harmonies but with a wide range of material. The album was released in 1961 and made it to number 9 on the pop charts. It's sole hit was "Cathy's Clown" but that has gone down in history as one of the Everly's biggest hits. Another cool fact about this album is that is was the first recording of the song, "Love Hurts", a song covered over and over again ever since all the way up to today. (you may have heard it on the recent commercials for Swifter). Here is that album that graced my turn table today. Enjoy!
