The Everlys & The Beatles ...continue (see beginning information #201)

The Everly Brothers were an... influence. Lennon and McCartney consciously copied Don and Phil Everly's distinctive two-part harmonies. Their vocals on two 1962 recordings, "Love Me Do" and "Please Please Me" were inspired by the Everlys' powerful vocal innovation on "Cathy's Clown" (1960), the first recording to ever reach number one simultaneously in the USA and in England. "Two of Us", the opening track on Let It Be is overtly composed in the Everly style, and McCartney acknowledges this in the recording with a spoken "Take it Phil." (Quote from Stevie Riks aka merseyboys)
