Sutherland Brothers & Quiver: Dream Kid

Bud Scoppa, Phonograph Record, May 1974

WHEN Quiver and the Sutherland Brothers – two groups then practically unknown in the U.S. – joined forces to last year to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative aspects of each group, the most the six musicians could have reasonably hoped for was some occasional curiosity about the length and oddness of their hybrid name. But good fortune struck: out of their initial sessions as a combined unit came a promising first album with an irresistible track, 'You Got Me Anyway'. That track was released as a single, and it quickly and justly became a major American hit. An opening slot on the '73 Elton John tour gave the new band added exposure.
