    Originally written by Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers, who had a US top ten hit with it in 1960, “When Will I Be Loved“ was covered by Linda Ronstadt in 1975, and her version was an even bigger hit in the US peaking at No. 2. — Wikipedia

    The typeface used for the artist’s name has been “covered”, too, and more than once: Cruikshank was first released by MacKellar, Smiths and Jordan in 1886. It showed up in Germany as Zierschrift Regatta (H. Berthold AG, before 1898) and as Eureka (B. Krebs, before 1905). There are several digital interpretations, see the typeface page for details.

      Thanks for the ID Florian! This may be the first time I’ve heard of Cruikshank!

      You’re welcome! It was not on my radar before either.
