Covers: When Will I Be Loved

“When Will I Be Loved” was written by Phil Everly and recorded by the Everly Brothers in 1960.  There are several excellent covers, all with Everly Brothers style harmonies.  Linda Ronstadt’s 1975 version was even more successful than the original.

The Everly Brothers were popular in the United Kingdom and there are several covers recorded there:  The Bunch (Sandy Denny, lead vocal, 1972) and Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds (1980).
