WALKER BROTHERS - SUN AIN'T GONNA SHINE ANYMORE Vinyl LP
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition of The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore, The Walker Brothers fourth studio album. Originally released in 1966 by Smash Records, The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore, was the second American release by the band, following their US debut LP Introducing the Walker Brothers (1965). This album was prepared by Smash Records label in order to promote the group in the United States, where they weren't as successful as they were in Great Britain. Produced by Johnny Franz with the help of veteran British arrangers like Ivor Raymonde (who also worked with Dusty Springfield), and Reg Guest, the album is full of orchestrated ballads and soul-R&B-oriented sides, with a young Scott Walker on both songwriting and singing duties. The Walker Brothers weren't really British and weren't really brothers, and their real name wasn't Walker. They were Californians Scott Engel (best known as Scott Walker), John Maus, and Gary Leeds, and became huge stars in England at the peak of the British Invasion. After moving to Britain in 1965, they had a number of top ten albums and singles there. The Walker Brothers provided a unique counterpoint to the British Invasion by achieving much more success in the United Kingdom than in their home country, in a period when the popularity of British bands such as The Beatles dominated the U.S. charts.
