|Here they come!|
The Everly Brothers version of Bob Dylan`s Abandoned Love, is taken from their Dave Edmunds produced album 'Born Yesterday'(1985). This is a top Track, my favourite cover of the song.
The cover of "Lay Lady Lay", is taken from their album "EB 84"(1984)
Phil Everly stated in interview that Dylan offered the song to them backstage after an appearance by the duo in New York. Phil asked Dylan if he had any new songs that they might record. Dylan picked up a guitar and proceeded to sing the song so quietly that the Everlys thought they heard Dylan sing "Lay lady lay, lay across my big breasts, babe." He thought the song was about lesbians. Don Everly declined the song, saying "thank you, it's a great song, but I don't think we could get away with it. Dylan did not question them about it and went on to record the track himself. Months later, they heard Dylan's version on the radio and realized they'd misunderstood the words. The Everlys felt they'd missed a big opportunity and later recorded the song on their EB 84 album.,,,
