The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 65
Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.
“Warpaint” – The Brook Brothers
“Warpaint” by The Brook Brothers was released in 1961 and when these brothers were first around they were described as England’s answer to The Everly Brothers.The song became a UK Top 5 hit and was also recorded by Bill Haley, among others. Following the single’s success they released a full-length album and toured with Cliff Richard and Bobby Rydel.
After their last chart hit, “Trouble Is My Middle Name”, in 1963, the group’s popularity faded, and they left public view by 1965.
