The Walker Brothers

They weren't British, they weren't brothers, and their real names weren't Walker, but Californians Scott Engel, John Maus, and Gary Leeds were briefly huge stars in England (and small ones in their native land) at the peak of the British Invasion. Engel and Maus were playing together in Hollywood when drummer Leeds suggested they form a trio and try to make it in England. And they did -- with surprising swiftness, they hit the top of the British charts with "Make It Easy on Yourself" in 1965. "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" repeated the feat the following year, and the group also had U.K. hits with "My Ship Is Coming In," "(Baby) You Don't Have to Tell Me," "Another Tear Falls," and others. For a few months they experienced frenzied adulation almost on the level of the Beatles and the Stones, though in the U.S. (where they rarely performed) only "Make It Easy on Yourself" and "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" entered the Top 20.

While the Walkers looked the part of British Invaders with their shaggy mop-top hairstyles, they were far more pop than rock. Nor did they play on most of their records. With producer Johnny Franz and veteran British arrangers like Ivor Raymonde (who also worked with Dusty Springfield) and Reg Guest, they favored orchestrated ballads that were a studied attempt to emulate the success of another brother act who weren't really brothers: the Righteous Brothers. Not as soulful as the Righteous Brothers, lead singer Scott Walker's deep croon betrayed strong debts to non-rock vocalists like Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra. While their biggest hits were covers of songs by American pop songwriting teams like Bacharach-David and Mann-Weil, Scott (and occasionally John Walker) could write brooding originals in a more personal, less overblown style when given the chance.

In the intensely competitive days of 1967, the Walkers' brand of pop suddenly become passé, and the group disbanded in the face of diminishing success and Scott's increasingly fruitful solo career. Scott ran off a series of Top Ten British solo albums in the late '60s, which have attracted a sizable cult with their idiosyncratic marriage of Scott's brooding, insular songs and ornate orchestral arrangements. Gary Walker released a few singles and an album with his group the Rain in a much harder-rocking guitar-oriented format. The Walkers reunited for a while in the mid-'70s, which produced a final British hit ("No Regrets"). Much of the Walkers' story is retold in the biography Scott Walker: A Deep Shade of Blue, published only in Britain. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

The Walker Brothers did some of the most beautiful, sad, love Ballads ever in Popular music."The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore" is a Masterpiece of the "romance gone wrong" genre. They did a tremendous version of "Make It Easy on Yourself" as well as other excellent stuff.Man, I really miss the sixties music. I was in my late teens when they were big and still haven't heard anybody better in this ballad style.
fonnyl
Cool stuff... never heard of them before!
t_heath
These guys put out some great music...love d 'em in the sixties!!!
"PEOPLE GET READY" IS A GREAT SONG BY THIS GROUP,THEY PUT OUT SOME WONDERFUL SONGS,HOPE TO HEAR MORE FROM THEM,THANKS PANDORA
The Walkers sound a lot like the Fortunes, a truly British group, although each group has a distinctivel y better sound than many of the popular British acts of that time. Alas, not the sound appreciated by music lovers then.
Sun Ain't Gonna Shine is truly a masterpiece & one of the best songs of the 1960's. One of my favorites.If Only they made records an 1/8 as good today.....
love the walkers brothers,jus t not this song
