This live album brings us back to the start, pure Vika and Linda, just singing together, as they always have and always will, applying all the experience and confidence they've accumulated, more gospel than you might expect. The entire performance starts and ends with two songs Paul Kelly would probably never have written if he didn't know he intended Vika and Linda to record them, such fine songs that Paul performs them himself, but it's probably Vika and Linda who stamp those songs as two of the best moments in Paul's songwriting career
Vika and Linda Bull are a sister vocal duo who came to prominence after being asked to sing backing vocals in Joe Camilleri's band The Black Sorrows. All the songs on the album were originals - Paul Kelly had offered them 12 tracks of which they recorded five. Three of the tracks written specifically for them, "When Will You Fall For Me' by Mark Seymour, "House Of Love" by Wayne Burt and "These Hands" by Eris O'Brien. For a limited time, there was a bonus disc that came with the album, which contained some gospel songs
Vika and Linda" is the debut studio album by Australia vocal duo Vika & Linda Bull. Perhaps because of the contributions of such a broad diversity of writers - and thanks also to the fact that Vika and Linda Bull possess strikingly different voices - the album moves effortlessly across a spectrum of styles but, for the most part, is a very laid-back, often country-flavoured affair. Still, far from getting bogged down in a single groove, Vika and Linda is a real feast. It's not the kind of album where singles, or "standout tracks", are easy to pick. Sure, the first single "When Will You Fall For Me" has a terrific rousing chorus.
Between Two Shores is the fifth studio album by Australia vocal duo Vika & Linda Bull. The album features some of the most popular songs of Vika and Linda Bulls's career, including some from their time with Black Sorrows. The album was released on 23 September 2006 via Liberation Records. The album was dedicated to Stuart Speed, Vika and Linda's bass player who died during the making of the album.
