WALK RIGHT BACK

Latest update on 30/10/2017

Artist: Everly Brothers
Author: Sonny Curtis
Label: WB
Year: 1960

N°1 UK in '61. Written by Crickets member Sonny Curtis when he was drafted. The brothers quickly cut it when Sonny was still at the barracks writing an additional verse. So, they recorded the first verse twice and that was the hit. Ann Murray's later hit version also lacks that second verse.
