The Brothers sing Warren Zevon & Randy Newman

No, Zevon and Newman didn't record together, but they each wrote a side of an obscure White Whale 1967 single by THE BROTHERS. Zevon wrote "The Girl's Alright" and Randy Newman "Love Story."
Zevon was on the White Whale label as half of Lyme and Cybelle. Lyme and Cybelle issued two singles before The Brothers turned up with the failed combo of "It'll All Wash Away with the Rain" and "Today Is Today," followed by their second and last: "Love Story" backed wih "The Girl's Alright." A brief salute to an obscure but tasteful group that covered two of our finest composers.
