MP3 of the Week

Earlier this week, we were hanging out with some friends at their house on Shelter Island.

Our friend is a great guitar, banjo, mandolin player and he had another friend who can sing like no get out.

They got going after dinner and did a fantastic rendition of The Everly Brothers’ “Love Hurts”.

When I was a teenager, I didn’t know this song was an Everly Brothers’ song.

The rendition of this song I heard first and loved was from a band called Nazareth. I still can’t get enough of that song.

But Gram Parsons and Emmy Lou Harris do a version that was clearly the inspiration for the version that our friends played last week.

So I am going with that one as my MP3 of the Week.
