ALL AMERICAN BOYS is just that … a story of a group of American individuals, three of whom emerged in England during 1965 as the hit recording group known as “The Walker Bros.”
However, this is NOT a story of “The Walker Bros.” per se, but rather the story of them as separate entities, of their various friends, acquaintances and fellow musical associates and the product they jointly produced in AMERICA circa 1957-1965.
Many of these releases involve Scott Engel as a performer, songwriter, musician, arranger and producer.
Of the three individuals who became “The Walker Bros.”, Engel was by far the most prolific musical creator, starting out as a 13 year old solo singer before teaming up with high school buddies such as Kevin Bruce, John Stewart and Jonathan Young to record a variety of vocal and instrumental singles that covered a number of different musical styles from rock ‘n’ roll to novelty to surf!
Besides well over a dozen previously undocumented Scott Engel related releases, ALL AMERICAN BOYS also uncovers the facts behind how The Walker Brothers Trio REALLY became “The Walker Bros.”.
Also included is a full DISCOGRAPHY of Scott Engel – John Maus - Gary Leeds - “The Walker Bros.” and associated American released material circa 1957-1967, over 20 pages of NOTES AND REFERENCES and a thorough INDEX.
This is a must for all aficionados of ‘60s music and, of course, all fans of “The Walker Bros.”.
