CD Review: Foreverly by Billie Joe and Norah

Foreverly arrived on the review desk before Christmas and inevitably before the passing of Phil Everly, so although it was recorded as a tribute by Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones it will no doubt take on an ever deeper meaning now to those who hear it.

Fans of The Everly Brothers will no doubt recognise many of the songs featured on Foreverly from the Everly’s album Songs Our Daddy Taught Us.

It’s fair to say that both Norah and Billy Joe haven’t strayed to far from the original arrangements of the The Everly’s but is that a good or bad thing?

Undoubtedly, an Everly Brothers homage is long overdue and this is clearly what the featured artists have intended displaying the influence The Everly's have had on them whilst serving to introduce a further generation of fans to the Everly Brothers music and the track I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail still produces a lump to the throat today as it did over 50 years ago.
