Charlie Louvin Hatch Show print

8 December 2010

Store date: 30 September 2003

I’ve never met Charlie Louvin, and I’ve never seen him perform music, but The Louvin Brothers are my nineteenth most listened-to artist according to the scrobbling program on last.fm.  I love those Louvin Brothers harmonies!

This is another classy Hatch Show Print broadside, produced to promote the Louvin Brothers tribute album, Livin’ Lovin’ Losin’: Songs of the Louvin Brothers.  It was sent to the store by the folks at either the Atlanta or Nashville office of Universal Distribution.  Charlie signed in the open midsection space on the left-hand side.  The space on the right is conspicuously blank, as if lying in wait for brother Ira to come along and sign his name.

Here are two versions of “The New Partner Waltz” (a fitting song title for the Livin’ Lovin’ Losin’ tribute). The first is the 1957 original by The Louvin Brothers:

The second is by the 2003 pairing of Linda Ronstadt and Carl Jackson:

    I don’t know The Louvin Brothers’ music. I’ll have to check it out. That list of featured artists is a who’s who of American music.

    • They weren’t attached to this post when you added your comment, Tish, but I’ve posted side-by-side versions of one of the Louvin Brothers songs featured on the compilation. Hope you enjoy them. If you’re into singing aloud at all, you’ll likely find that you can easily find a place within those harmonies to fit your voice. That’s what makes the Louvins’ recordings so much fun: it’s really tough to keep from singing along.
