Boudleaux and Felice Bryant continued

Diadorius Boudleaux Bryant was born Shellman, Georgia, February 13, 1920.
Felice (Scaduto) Bryant was born Milwaukee, Wisconsin, August 7, 1925.
Boudleaux (pronounced Bood-Lo) Bryant died of cancer in Knoxville, Tennessee on June 25, 1987. Felice Bryant died on April 22, 2003 also of cancer. Both are resting on the third floor of the mausoleum at Woodlawn Memorial Cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee.

Few songwriters have compiled a catalog to rival that of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, who scored in both country and rock music.
Their first hit was Country Boy, a hit for little Jimmy Dickens in 1949. In the early '50s they wrote for many of the top country acts, including Carl Smith and Eddy Arnold. By 1957, the Bryants were writing for country-influenced rockers the Everly Brothers. Together the husband and wife team wrote such classics as Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Problems, Poor Jenny, Take A Message to Mary, Brand New Heartache and Sleepless Nights. On his own, Boudleaux Bryant penned All I Have to Do Is Dream, Bird Dog, Devoted to You and Love Hurts.
The songs of the Bryants obviously made an impression on the Byrds. Dillard & Clark recorded Rocky Top, and Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris cut three of their songs: Sleepless Nights, Brand New Heartache and, most memorably, Love Hurts.
One of the Bryants’ best-known songs is Rocky Top which they wrote in only ten minutes in 1967. First popularized by the Osborne Brothers in 1968, Rocky Top is now known as one of the seven official Tennessee state songs and the unofficial fight song for the University of Tennessee’s athletic teams.

Among the Bryants' many industry honors are membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame (1991), the National Academy of Popular Music Songwriters Hall of Fame (1986) and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame (1972). Affiliated with performing rights organization BMI throughout their careers, Felice & Boudleaux Bryant earned a total of 59 BMI Pop, Country and R&B Awards.

Isn't it fun to see so many tracks of just one Everly Brothers song ?? If you also wanna listen, instead of just seeing, hurry up to the comments.
Note : track 26 is (also) a very special one......


Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080214
The file is a small 65MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits

When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_february article !) :
Thanks for the files. Very interesting compilation(s). You do a great job and all your efforts are appreciated!
Thank you Jean. You must have put a lot of time and hard work on this and all. Great hard to find songs. Again, thank you.
