BARRY GIBB, ROY ORBISON & GATLIN BROTHERS 1985 written by: Barry Gibb
Sublime. Back in 1986 this onstage performance achieved perfection with this beautiful, classic song, penned by Mark Knopfler originally for The Everly Brothers. It (arguably) transcends all other recordings of it, before or since--including those earlier versions by The Everlys and Knopfler himself. www.randythornhorn.com www.thornhorn.com www.thekestrelwaters.com Read the acclaimed novel, THE KESTREL WATERS by Randy Thornhorn! "An extraordinary work ..." ~ William Peter Blatty "Captures the tragedy of romantic and familial love better than any story I have ever read." ~ Janeiro Bento Hear the night song of Kestrel. He has not always been this dark-winged angel. He was once a star, a guitar star so righteous. He was once a lost boy in love. In The Beginning were two singers, The Brothers Brass. In The End there is no end to what one wounded girl's heart will give. And no end to what one brother will give for the other. The Brothers Brass. Two young grassroots singers (with echoes of The Everly Brothers). Raised in Savannah by the sea, together, these boys' voices chime like heavenly bells. The oldest brother Kestrel falls in love with a girl named Bettilia, a wild child who hides in the treetops—hiding from her bad daddy on a haunted mountain called Riddle Top. Soon all the Family Brass falls for Bettilia. She touches Kestrel, she touches everyone. And they touch sweet Bettilia, forever. Then comes that fateful day when Kestrel says "I do" to his dance with the devil—his devil within and without. The Kestrel Waters is an eerie, heroic, and beautiful story of human love, like none you’ve ever known. An epic fable of an epic family whose hearts are comic, profane, and profoundly true. ”I was haunted throughout...mesmerizing, an extraordinary work. Thornhorn, where the hell have you been?" ~ William Peter Blatty (author of The Exorcist) "Mellifluous, Lyrical...with a darkness that creeps like kudzu." ~ Kirkus Reviews The Kestrel Waters (A Tale of Love and Devil) by author Randy Thornhorn. "One of the South's wildest new voices..." ~ The Oxford American Magazine
