OT: Pretend You Never Heard The Hit Cover Version

This is the 1973 original, produced by Duane Eddy, arranged by Warren Zevon (!?) with James Burton on guitar. Never cared for- well, really disliked... the massive hit cover version but the great Phil Everly slays it...Can you go there?

Original written by Albert Hammond and released on his LP It Never Rains In Southern California 1973....

Great version by Phil Everly tough

I stand corrected- thanks Nicos! As the story goes, Allan Clarke initially declined to do the song because he felt he couldnt compete with Phil's interpretation.

What a great version of this song. The Everly Brothers "Wake Up Little Susie" was the first record I ever bought, all 45 rpm of it. Oddly, a few days ago I upon an Everly Brothers song I'd never heard before. Next thing I know I've spent about an hour picking up Every Brothers tunes that were new to me. Now I have a disc's worth of tunes to listen to. Like many performers/groups from back in the day they have a large discography to explore.

Well this takes on added poignance now, doesn't it? It's really good, too. Thanks for posting.
