Chapin Sisters “A Date with the Everly Brothers”

( This fine album of echo-y period-sounding recordings salutes the Everly Brothers not only by covering their material and by honoring their rich harmonies, but it does so by utilizing vocices a bit closer in timbre than the Everly’s, resulting in some eerie stuff! While there are some interesting gender shifts and non-gender shifts (Cathy’s Sapphic Clown is sure to raise some eyebrows), what’s most interesting here is the sincerity of this exercise in sibling non-rivalry.
