The Allisons

The Allisons The Allisons were not brothers but they pretended to be, foreshadowing The Righteous Brothers and The Walker Brothers. They were an English pop duo favouring folky harmonies, foreshadowing Peter & Gordon and Chad & Jeremy. They had one hit.

The Allisons:

Are You Sure – A breakup song. Very chirpy, but there is real stuff hidden in the pap: “I’m not sure what to do” they admit, “It’s hard but I’ll pull through.” A number one hit (after hitting second place at the 1961 Eurovision Song Contest) in the UK in the winter of 1961.
