VA - Siblings Band Together (A Butterboy Compilation) (6 x CD's)


VA - Siblings Band Together (A Butterboy Compilation) (6 x CD's)

A sibling is identified as each of two or more children or offspring having one or both parents in common.  Siblings or full siblings (sisters or brothers) share the same biological parents. Full siblings are also the most common type of siblings. Twins/Triplets are siblings that are born at the same time. Often, twins/Triplets with a close relationship will develop a  language from infant-hood, a language only shared and understood between them. Studies suggest that identical siblings appear to display more talk than fraternal twins. The word sibling was reintroduced in 1903 in an article in Biometrika, as a translation for the German Geschwister, having not been used since 1425. 

Brothers and sisters often have complicated love/hate relationships, and adding music and fame to the situation only makes things more intense. But the results can also be wonderful because there talent runs in the family. From the matching harmonies to collaborating creatively with the alignment of heart, siblings bands have provide us with some of the great rock experiences in music.  Their brotherly or sisterly bonds have helped to create some of our favorite music even if there are plenty of battle scars along the way. 

With this compilation I tried to not include bands with the words brother or sisters in their band name however 3 bands did make the cut. How could you not include The Everly Brothers in a sibling compilation. All in all there are 120 different tracks from 120 different sibling bands.

Here are some of the most notable sibling rock bands mixed with some who you may not realize were siblings.  Enjoy!

      There could be more siblings in rock music, so another volume could be on the cards. Make your list of another 20 and drop it in the comments. That would be great.

  5. Dear BB, what a nice surprise to encounter again here, it happened yesterday when i decided to just have a try at your spot here... Hooked again of course, after just a day. Much appreciated. Could you please check the 3 links of this post, i get the message on all 3 as follows: 'Oops! Why you’re here? We are very sorry for inconvenience. It looks like you’re try to access a page that either has been deleted or never existed.' Tks in advance, as always ! Ron

  6. Hi Ron,
    Glad to back.
    Links now reestablished, tested and working.



    1. Confirmed working perfect, thanks a million!

  7. Thank you for this big bunch, Butter, and keeping it all the family... and especially for the deeper, less-common cuts. And Hanson? alongside the Allman Brothers? This is broad, rich, and bold! Cheers!

    1. Hi Aging Child,
      Thanks. This set highlight some known siblings with others that are not commonly regarded as siblings.
      Keeping it in the family has its benefits.
