Biography

Twin Engine was a duo comprising Randy Naylor (ex – The Poor) and LA singer/songwriter Constantine Gusiaus. They cut this demo in 1971 for a scrapped United Artists album project. It was plucked from potentially permanent obscurity after an acetate copy was discovered in Randy’s ex-wife’s attic.

The style is laid-back country-pop, dominated by excellent songwriting and honey-coated Everly Brothers-style vocal harmonies. Indeed, The Everlys’ “When Will I be Loved” is given an original bouncy rock treatment here

The ubiquitous country-rock wrecking crew of Clarence White, Chris Hillman, Randy Fuller, Byron Berline and “Sneaky” Pete Kleinow are in evidence throughout and the production, courtesy of Joey Stec and Ralph Scala, who also perform throughout the album, (whose album as The Dependables from the same year bears striking similarities.)
