Editorial Reviews

After years of separation, the two voices and acoustic guitars that laid the foundation for pop music were united again to harmonize in London's Royal Albert Hall as thousands of fans who flocked to the scene were joined by generations of musicians they inspired, from the Beatles to the Beach Boys. With an all-star band featuring keyboardist Pete Wingfield, guitartists Albert Lee and Martin Jenner and drummer Graham Jarvis, the Everly Brothers sing 20 of their greatest songs, proving originals are still the best. Songs: Claudette, Walk Right Back, Crying in the Rain, Cathy's Clown, Love Is Strange, When Will I Be Loved?, So Sad (To Watch Love Go Bad), Bird Dog, Be-Bop-a-Lula, Barbara Allen, A Long Time Gone, Step It Up and Go, Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Devoted to You, Love Hurts, ('Til) I Kissed You, All I Have to Do Is Dream, Lucille, Let It Be Me.

Most of us seem to have forgotten that back in 1983 actually 2 concerts were played: both on 22nd and 23rd September The Everly Brothers played at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The several CD releases are recordings of one these concerts, but this DVD release is the other show! So, no complaints about this release as being "incomplete" or whatever......
Just compare the songs to the ones on the CD's, and you'll find out that these are different recordings. Both the DVD and the CD's state September 23rd as date of recording, but one of them must be wrong.
Differences can be heard clearly on Don's solo singing parts: Cathy's Clown and Love Is Strange are obvious examples. Even Bye Bye Love is treated differently by Don in his second solo part.
So get hold of this film! By doing so, you get a hold on the first or second reunion concert! (I honestly can't tell which concert is 23rd September or not...)
Futhermore, just watch Don and Phil looking at each other during Let It Be Me.....how close to perfect harmony can you get?? Well, this actually IS perfect harmony! Enjoy!

Format: DVD
I can remember seeing them at the Bitter End on Bleeker Street in Greenwich Village so close I could touch them, and at The Westbury Music fair in the round.........
Even though they've changed the phrasing on a couple of their songs, and it's not quite the way they did it on the record, the Everly Brothers are living Rock and Roll legends that cannot be replaced by anyone, and seeing them in person, or even here on DVD, is a wonderful experience.....
Two points: first, to sing the same songs for 40 years, night after night, and often not being allowed to grow past those sacred hits can take a lot out of any musician, and singing into that same mike every night, with the same guy and the same songs can really take a toll on any relationship......of course the people in the audience only care about hearing their favorite songs the way they remember them, and are unaware, (as they should be) that they sang the same set the same way last night and every night for the past 40 years.....it gets to you
Second, in any relationship, often one dominates and the other doesn't, and when that happens over and over and you don't just work together but you're family as well, well Don still sees Phil as his baby brother, and now that both men are in their 50's.....it's easy to see why the split up happened.....(The Beatles were destined for the same thing as soon as Brian Epstein was lost...no buffer)
All that in mind, I bought this the second I saw it......the sound is OK, but not as good as you would have liked, because the band and the background music was not what they deserved......and the boys are older, as are we all, and time has a way of......
And you could see that at this point, there was still some tension between these two wonderful musicians......

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This amazing concert is finally coming to DVD? Pinch me!
I've seen the Everly Brothers perform 13 times over the past several years. In fact, it was the original PBS broadcast of this historic concert that made me re-discover the incredible vocal harmony of Phil and Don.
Now that live performances by this trailblazing duo are rare indeed, it's comforting to know that this concert is about to be released in digital format.
Fans of rock and roll music from the fifties to the present day will thoroughly enjoy this presentation. I can't wait for its release. Wow, a belated Christmas present!

Filmed in Albert Hall in London in the mid 80s, this reunion tour was a magical night while the delicate harmony of the brothers was perfect. The song versions are very close to originals. Conversations were low-key and, they still both looked handsome.

Along with the classics, they perform medly of the beautiful music from the CD Songs Our Daddy Taught Us which is a wonderful soothing collection of very early folk, traditional songs. Their daddy, musician Ike Everly, performed many years ago. But if ever their voices harmonize well, it is with those old folk tales.

No other duo has ever evoked such vocal purity as the Everlys. They sound as one, even though there lies that distinction in their voices. And no performance they will ever do will compare to this reunion at Albert Hall. The two looked great! ......MzRizz

I am writing this review as the Ashlee Simpson/SNL lip synching controversy stirs. Oh horrors, our current pop stars are fakes! In that environment, I finally got around to buying and rewatching this Everly Brothers concert from 1983. By the end, all I could say was WOW! What voices! What talent! It is such a shame that popular culture took such a wrong turn somewhere.

But did anyone go in and do CPR on that crowd, or are those stiffs still sitting in Albert Hall? What was up with that audience? I'm an old fogey now, but I KNOW I would have been up and shaking my tailfeathers during "Bird Dog", "Claudette", "Lucille", etc.. This band and the Everly's really rocked that night! Shame the audience was velcroed to their seats.

Actually, I bought this after going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Seems that during the 50 minute film on the Hall's inductees, they couldn't afford a single second to allow you to hear this duo's voices. I was left empty and just wanted to hear their harmonies again. I am absolutely blown away. I believe Paul Simon said their influence far exceeded their fame. He is so right.

The Everly's get a 5 for this DVD. The makers get a 3 for leaving songs out and giving no extras. I average that to a 4.
