Recording information by sweetsuejustyouGOLD

Did something completely different on this occasion - I recorded the harmony first and then added the lead vocal afterward as a completed duet. The source recording has been left as an open duet if anyone else would care to join in.

"Love Hurts" is a song written and composed by the American songwriter Boudleaux Bryant. It was first recorded in 1960 by The Everly Brothers as a track on the album A Date with The Everly Brothers, but was never released as a single. The first hit version of the song was by Roy Orbison hitting the Top Five of Australia's country's singles charts in 1961.

The most successful recording of the song was by hard rock band Nazareth, who took the song to the U.S. Top 10 in 1975 and hit #1 in Norway and the Netherlands. In the UK the most successful version of the song was by former Traffic member Jim Capaldi, who took it to #4 in the charts in November 1975. Cher also recorded the song in 1975 but did not have a hit with it at the time. She recorded a second version which became a minor hit in the UK in December 1991. Other artists who have done cover versions of the song are Jimmy Webb, Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris, Jennifer Warnes, Journey, Don McLean, Paul Young, Joan Jett, Pat Boone, Smokie, Sinead O'Connor, Robin Gibb and Rod Stewart, among many others.

My appreciation and all the credit go to Kriss_inmusic for uploading the wonderful backing track to the CS. Thank you for listening.
