Obscure country album by the Kentucky duo

"The Everly brothers never strayed very far from their country roots, even during their hit-making days, but this album is very clearly country.Most of the songs are covers of songs made famous by others, like Husbands and wives (Roger Miller), Ladies love outlaws (Waylon Jennings), Not fade away (Buddy Holly), Paradise (John Prine), Good hearted woman (Waylon an Willie) and Rocky top (Lynn Anderson). Don and Phil sing the songs as they were written, so there are are no surprise arrangements.The other songs are generally less well known, including Somebody nobody knows, a Kris Kristofferson song. It's good to see that they chose to record this rather than yet another version of one of his standards. This could hardly be described as essential, but will appeal to anybody who likes the Everly brothers and who also enjoys `Nashville sound' country."
Don and Phil relax and wail in Nashville

"Produced by Chet Atkins for RCA Records in the 70s, this is indeed an interesting acquisistion for any collector and a must for the fans of these harmonious guys. The best cut here is a slow song written by Kris Kristofferson, "Somebody Nobody Knows." "Watchin' It Go" is also a gem from the unknown. RCA never did know how to merchandise their best stuff and this album wound up quickly in the thrift bins. This is a real treat. Tom Willett"
100 % country

"After a long stay far from Nashville, Don and Phil came back to record in the city where they had recorded their best music.
This can be qualified as Nashville modern but pure country.For those who appreciated Chet Atkins type of picking on acoustic guitar and Johnny Gimble fiddle playing, this is a perfect choice as the band includes some of the best musicians in Nashville, the atmosphere in the studio is close to the one the Everly had in the early sixties.The best track is probably "Lay it down" which reaches the level of their best hits.
If you like both the Everlys and what is often called "new country", you should get this record as it deserves a careful attention.I hope you'll enjoy this music as much as I did.
