How can I tell you it wouldn't be the same? (Lon and Derrek Van Eaton) #414

Lon & Derrek Van Eaton Warm Woman/ More Than Words (Apple Records, APPLE 46, 1972)

These American brothers were signed by George Harrison and recorded one album for Apple Records (Brother).

Although George believed in the brothers and thought they would be huge, in reality the boys produced a pleasantly innocuous record much like later Dark Horse recordings by Jiva, Attitudes and Splinter that George would be involved in.

Few bought this single (a second track, Sweet Music, from Brothers was also released as a single with the same effect) and it's not hard to see why.

This music was so NOT what was happening on the charts in 1972 it's laughable.

Hidden gem: Well that may be stretching it but the B side is a better bet than the dirge like A side. I can hear why George liked it - it sounds like him!
