Product Description

The Cadence label put out all the Everly Brothers' biggest hits: Wake Up Little Susie; Bird Dog; Bye Bye Love; Devoted to You; All I Have to Do Is Dream; Problems; 'Til I Kissed You; Let It Be Me; When Will I Be Loved; Take a Message to Mary , and more. This release contains all those classic, influential rock 'n' roll hits and the rest of their classics for Cadence-PLUS four previously unreleased demo recordings from the late '50s; the alternate version of Poor Jenny (a #14 hit in the UK), and more. 47 tracks.

Amazon.com

The Everly Brothers were rock & roll's first true genre hoppers, applying the shuffle of R&B to the streamlined Tin Pan Alley-via-Nashville tunes of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, sung by two inimitable Appalachian high, lonesome voices that conveyed an emotional depth rare in teenage boys. For once, all the sides recorded during the first three years of the Everlys' career are presented on one thoroughly annotated collection, along with a handful of alternate takes and demos. The duo's most popular chart-topping hits from that era are included, but the true gems of the disc are the album tracks. Often accompanied by little more than an acoustic guitar, Don and Phil range from traditional murder ballads to early rock & roll classics to country hits to precious, self-penned love songs, laying down a foundation that the Beatles, among others, built upon. --Kelly Minnis

It has Cathy's Clown also and all the best songs I believe they sang.
Joan G. Zakrzewski
For those who want more than just the hits, this is the ideal collection of the Everly brothers' fifties music.
Peter Durward Harris
From their first hit in '57 through their last in '60, the Everly's gave Cadence their very best.

Unlike some of the artists who helped birth rock 'n' roll, the Everly Brothers are fairly well represented on CD. In addition to numerous single-disc greatest hits collections, Rhino's 4-CD box set, "Heartaches and Harmonies," provides a stellar overview of their entire career, spanning pre-Cadence, Cadence, Warner Brothers and post-WB recordings. Warner Archive's 2-CD "Walk Right Back" provides a good overview of their decade on Warner Brothers, and Bear Family's "Classic Everly Brothers" covers the pre-Cadence and Cadence years with the German label's typical thoroughness, including alternate takes and radio broadcasts.

Varese's latest collection fits in a small niche between the Rhino and Bear Family boxes, and serves as an essential complement to the Warner Archives set. Though not as complete as the Bear Family issue, the missing rarities are primarily the province of completists, and the domestic price-tag makes this an affordable part of a library of Everly's essentials. As a more complete rendering of the Everly's seminal years, this serves as either an augmentation of the Rhino box (which has half as many Cadence-era tracks) or a complement to the Warner set. The only thing missing from this release is the sort of track-by-track discussion one would expect from a box set. The essay from Andrew Sandoval, featuring interviews with both Everlys, give a sense of the Cadence years, but fails to provide detailed background on all the tracks. And given that many were not hits, the background would be interesting.

That piffling complaint aside, what's here is truly magnificent.

Format: Audio CD
The Everly brothers were raised on country music but they quickly adapted to rock'n'roll, the exciting new music of the late fifties. In truth, they never strayed all that far from their roots although it seemed a long way at the time. Despite a massive injection of R+B into their music, the music here has a lot more in common with traditional country than with contemporary pop or country music.
The classic songs that the bothers recorded during this period of their career included Bye bye love, Wake up little Susie, All I have to do is dream, Claudette, Bird dog, Devoted to you, Problems, Take a message to Mary, Poor Jenny (included twice because the USA and UK single versions differed), Till I kissed you, Let it be me, When will I be loved and Like strangers. Some were only B-sides originally but all have become classics.
The brothers also recorded fine covers of R+B classics including Rip it up, Keep a knocking, Be bop a lula and Leave my woman alone.
As if to emphasize their determination not to lose their musical roots, they recorded an album of Appalachian folk-country music, Songs our daddy taught us, at the height of their pop success. The tracks from that album occupy the first thirteen tracks of the second CD.
So this collection contains all the music they recorded for Cadence that most people will ever want, although the diehard fans can find alternate takes and demos elsewhere. For those who want more than just the hits, this is the ideal collection of the Everly brothers' fifties music. Other collections are available covering their later music.

First of all, if you love great music and some of the best vocal harmonizing ever recorded, buy this 2-CD set. It's all here. The hits that have stood the test of time for 45 years. Tremendous covers of songs by Little Richard, Ray Charles and Roy Orbison. High, lonesome covers of ancient folk songs covering topics mostly dealing with death. I know I sound like a commercial, but this collection was such a fantastic surprise to me that I really want to shout it to the world.

The Everly Brothers are often overlooked or dismissed in any discussion of seminal influences on rock and roll. Too wimpy, many say. Had a few hits, then crashed and burned. But Phil Everly's "Can't Recall" is pretty much a blueprint for the song stylings of Paul Simon. Furthermore, Gram Parsons & Chris Hillman's gorgeous harmonizing within The Flying Burrito Brothers owes a big debt to the Everlys.

Essential.

received this a few weeks before the sad news of phil everly leaving planet earth...but he and his brother were true originals...they will surprise you perhaps with their takes on little richard tunes...but it is the harmony of the voices. has their ever been better voices in pop music? the beatles and crosby, stills, and nash come close....

informative notes included with these cadence recordings. my only complaint is the print is way too small on the back for an ole guy like me.to read

Ordered this CD and the sound is wonderful. Quality very good. The songs sound just like they did back in the 50's on the original records. I am so glad I bought it. It has Cathy's Clown also and all the best songs I believe they sang.
