She Sings, They Play (New LP)

Davis Skeeter / Nrbq

Digitally remastered edition. The classic 1981 collaboration returns. After working with her sisters in The Davis Singers, Skeeter Davis embarked on a storied solo career. With nearly 40 charting singles between 1957-1974, her recording of “”The End Of The World”” (Produced by Chet Atkins) hit #2 on both the Pop and Country charts, #1 Adult Contemporary, and #4 R&B in 1962. Think about that! Since Skeeter had already crossed perceived genres, the thought of the collaboration with music’s Pandora’s Box known as NRBQ shouldn’t seem difficult to grasp. Terry Adams’ discovery of David Sisters 78 RPMs saw tracks added to early NRBQ set lists. The pairing was meant to be. She Sings, They Play was a natural coupling, and was issued to critical acclaim in 1985. “”We had more fun making this record. What other group would think to do ‘Someday My Prince Will Come’ in 4/4 time?,”” asked Skeeter Davis. She Sings, They Play returns nearly four decades after it’s original release.
