Everly songs

"I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town"
sung by The Everly Brothers

I'm gonna move baby, way out on the outskirts of town
I'm gonna move baby, way out on the outskirts of town
You see I don't need no-body, always hangin' 'round
Let me tell you honey, we gonna move away from here
I don't need no iceman, I'm gonna, get you a Frigidaire
When we move, way out on the outskirts of town
Whoa, you see we won't need no-body, always hangin' 'round
It may seem funny honey, funny as can be
If we have a dozen children, you know they AW-LL-all better look like me
When we move, way back 'a town
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, we won't need no-body, always hanging around
We don't need nobody baby, AW-LL-always hanging 'round
Hangin' 'round
Hangin' 'round

Jimmy Reed, Number 4 on Ricardo's list who have sung the November song, very bluesy version they don't come much more bluesy than this.

This is a very interesting version in that it was recorded live at the Fillmore Auditorium by Albert King.

The Everly Brothers at the Fillmore is a recent posting into "Appearances, Nightclubs etc" by Gloria.

Rod Stewart singing this month's song recorded 1964. Very Unexpected by me.

The B side is "Good Morning Little School Girl",

Muddy Waters "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town.

Very bluesy version.
A lot of singers sing this song very bluesy. This is "Little Milton"

I would have liked to hear the Everly Brothers do a later version of the song when they were really into their blues in their 40's.

Interesting Wikipedia of "Little Milton"

A Ray Charles version of November song. Too much going off in the song for me, there are other versions by Ray Charles.
This version is sung by the "Allman Brothers". A little less solo guitar would have been ok for me.

A youtube comment:
i believe this is recorded live at the Ludlow Garage bar on Ludlow avenue in Cincinnati Ohio just 10 miles from my home i wish i could have been there to see it all but i was only 3 in 1970 so they wouldn't let me in probably but i would have gone there for the show if i could have Gregg .... lawd i most surely would!

Taj Mahal singing his version of "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town".

He has a connection with the Everly Brothers re: "Paradise" which is in video section.
Really appreciated this version "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town"(#835) by Taj Mahal! He is so musically diverse! The instrumentation fits his version perfectly!

For another facet of his versatility, see Forum thread, EB Appearances, page 3 #31, to enjoy his performance solo and with the Everly Brothers on the program, Prairie Home Companion.

Great video Gloria!

Thank you Chris for taking the time to post some of the videos on my list of post # 827!

You took the time to find them Ricardo it was only right to take a look and share them with everyone. BTW a lot of the links have expired.

There are so many extra bluesy songs in your list Ricardo. I found quite a lot of artists singing this song but then it is a great song.
Still impressed by how much one can get out of a good song!

Just check out the re-harmonization & big band arrangement by no other than Mr. Count Basie (one of the last links on my list of post # 827):

Yes Chris, unfortunately it was compiled through the years, so some of them have expired, but I'm sure one can still find them somewhere...
