Songs Our Daddy Taught Us A loving re-issue in best possible sound of the Everly Brothers timeless homage to their roots,
Songs Our Daddy Taught Us . In reality it should probably have been ""Songs Our Daddy, Grandaddy, Uncle, Second Cousin etc... Taught Us"", but that would not have been so snappy. The Everly Brothers came from a singing family in Kentucky and their parents Ike & Margaret were folk singers. This album draws songs from the distant past, such as
which originates from the Tudor period,
Who"s Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet , an old Scottish ballad, and songs from the 20th century like
Put My Little Shoes Away
that first surfaced in a 1910 song book and from the 1930s, Gene Autrey"s
Silvered Haired Daddy Of Mine . The album was recorded in 1958, but would not sound any different if it was made yesterday. Don & Phil deliver these timeless and poignant songs which even more than their pop material show off the incredible natural Everly harmonies.
