Synopsis

Amazon.com
Just as the Louvin Brothers worshipped older brother duos like the Delmores and the Bolicks (Blue Sky Boys), Robert and Charles Whitstein adored the work of Charlie and Ira Louvin. The Whitsteins found mainstream country success elusive for them in 1960s Nashville and so returned to their home state of Louisiana to record their debut album in 1969. Financed completely by their father Roy, the duo pressed a mere 500 copies of this tribute to their heroes (sold mostly at their church concerts), and when they reemerged 15 years later on Rounder, this long out-of-print album (originally credited to their Whitstine stage name) became of interest to their new fans. While the pair would develop a more unique style as they got older, this time capsule replicates the Louvin sound to a tee. --Marc Greilsamer
