A reminder that it is Record Store Day on Saturday. There will be some large percentages knocked off vinyls. I will definitely be going. Good hunting.

Did not get a chance to get out Chris, good for you. One store is holding me a couple of Everly vinyls, will have to see the condition because one has writing all over the cover, so I will see the condition of the vinyl itself, I end up buying almost everything he has, but have not been into the sto...

Lovely photo, Phil looks really well. Any idea when this would have been taken? If the baby is Erin's son it would be around '96, if her elder daughter it would be around 2000.

Phil, Patti and their BIG dog
Marion
Lovely dog, but I really do not know what breed this dog is. Anyone know? I wonder if this is a Belgian Malinoise? I love dogs, and I sure miss not having one, or 2.

Beautiful song Chris. I'd almost forgotten it. Only the two takes i.e. 23 and 25 are on the Price of Fame set so they must have considered these to be the best and discarded the others.

But it is not the pinky ring that Phil wore in the earliest years. Do you think it's a wedding ring??

If, unless they switched arms, wouldn't it probably end up the same hand/ring? I wonder if the pinky ring and this ring are the same one, and, oh wait! What about size? LOL!

Phil could perhaps have on a promise ring. He could have been in a relationship with someone, not engaged, but a commitment of sorts. You would wear that ring on your left hand. Phil could also have been going "steady" with someone?
Eat your hearts out girls! hahaha

Gloria definitely not the pinky ring. I would say it is a ring showing significance to a girl in some way, or he was gifted the ring and just chose to wear it there.

Good observations, Marion! I just read in a biography of Buddy Holly that Phil was quoted as saying something like, he 'finally had money to get a pinky ring' (when they were first experiencing success -1957,58). So that was significant to him.

Do you think we sing their songs as we ride along...oops...it may depend on what the carousel is playing! But on the other hand, I will sing what I'd like while riding with the Everly Brothers! This "little Susie" will be awake and loud..LOL! When/where else would you get THIS OPPORTUNITY again??

This photo was manipulated and retouched, and not at all well, by the publishing entity at the time (newspaper or magazine), so I don't like this one and rarely post it.

"Retouching" back then involved a lot of work, and anything beyond fixing of minor imperfections (skin, hair), was very detailed. delicate work utilizing a blade, like a surgeon's scalpel, which had to be done directly on the negative.

It is my professional opinion on this photo, and I have a right to state it. It is not evident to me that this is a photo of a photo. I do not get that at all, from looking at this image.

A group of us here at a dinner have read the above comments. Two are professional photographers, and an expert commercial retoucher whose opinions are quite divergent from yours. We all are entitled to our own opinions. So be it. Period end.

My point about the other photo:

http://knoxfocus.com/2014/11/everly-brothers-knoxv...

is that the type of digital degradation it exhibits is not "Gaussian", but "salt & pepper" noise, two totally different sorts of mathematical functions and, therefore, of visual effects. This is why, of course,...
