Vivian Williams and Barbara Lamb

Artist: Vivian Williams and Barbara Lamb with Tall Timber
LP: Twin Sisters
Song: "Leather Britches"
[ listen ]

Before there was Macklemore and Ryan Lewis...before Pearl Jam and Nirvana... probably even before Heart! Before any of that, the fiddling Twin Sisters were paving the way by rocking the Seattle music scene in 1974! I found this still-sealed copy of Vivian and Barbara's LP at the Goodwill store in Bremerton yesterday on my way to my youngest sister's college graduation ceremony. (Congratulations, sis!) It's a lot harder than you might think to find records in Bremerton. Info from the back of the album is included below, plus you can read about Twin Sisters here and buy MP3s of all the songs on this record here—which may be the only way you'll ever get to hear "Leather Britches," since DivShare has been broken for weeks!
PS: They're not really sisters...or even twins.
