Product Description

Heartfelt harmonies from rock's most influential and best-loved duo!

Amazon.com

Had rock & roll never happened, the Everly Brothers would probably have become famous as straight-ahead country artists in the tradition of such sibling acts as the Blue Sky Boys and the Louvin Brothers. Once Elvis, Carl Perkins, and crew hit, however, the Everlys joined the budding rockabilly ranks in 1957 and became not only huge stars, but the most influential two-part harmony team of all time. This sterling 20-track collection features all their early hits, from "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Suzie," "Bird Dog," and "Devoted to You" (all written by the great Boudleaux Bryant) to Roy Orbison's "Claudette" and their own sparkling originals "Til I Kissed You" and "When Will I Be Loved." --Billy Altman

By Matthew G. Sherwin HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 20, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Cadence Classics: Their 20 Greatest Hits is a fine Everly Brothers CD that truly gives us twenty great hits--there's not a dud in the bunch! The sound quality is excellent; and I like the artwork as well.

The album starts with "Bye Bye Love;" this early hit for the brothers sounds fresh even today. They harmonize so well; and the guitars really carry the melody along nicely. "I Wonder If I Care As Much" features The Everly Brothers front and center as they sing this tune about a love gone wrong. "I Wonder If I Care As Much" also has a slight country flavor to it that works well for this number. "Wake Up Little Susie" really shines and The Everly Brothers never miss a beat! They sing very well of how a date lasted longer than they promised their parents it would. Great!

"This Little Girl Of Mine" truly gives us an early rock and roll number that really sounds great; the guitar solo is great and I predict that you'll enjoy "This Little Girl Of Mine" very much. "All I Have To Do Is Dream" is a tender love ballad that would make a woman swoon; they sing it THAT well. "All I Have To Do Is Dream" is very well done. "Devoted To You" is another slow ballad perfect for dancing with your sweetheart; they sing this to perfection and the music to accompany them sounds terrific. Listen also for "Love Of My Life:" this has beautiful key changes and The Everly Brothers sing this with all their hearts and souls.

"('Til) I Kissed You" was another major hit for The Everly Brothers and it is certainly a highlight of this album. The guitars sound so great and The Everly Brothers sing sweetly of how they have discovered their true loves. "('Til) I Kissed You" is truly a classic pop vocal as well as an early rock and roll love song.

The Everly Brothers did their very best work on the Cadence label, and this collection puts together their best known cuts and some superb lesser known tracks.
All of the big cross-over hits are here, led by Bye Bye Love, Bird Dog and All I Have to Do is Dream. No one could put the pain of a failed romance into music like the Everly's, be it the eternally hopeful sound of When Will I Be Loved or the agonizingly heart-broken I Wonder If I Care As Much. Still, they weren't afraid to have fun with their music either, and the playfully cute lyrics of Poor Jenny, Problems and I Kissed You help offset the often somber tone of the album.
If you are an avid fan of the Everlys, you will love this collection. If not, you owe it to yourself to discover just how good they really were. Cadence Classics: Their 20 Greatest Hits is just the ticket to do it with.

This is an excellent CD featuring 20 of the Everly Brothers best recordings for Cadence Records. There isn't a bad song in the bunch. The only quibble I have is that they could have fit at least 10 more songs on the CD. "Be Bop A-Lula", for instance, is a great song that got left off. Still, 20 songs is more than a lot of Greatest Hits CDs include, so I recommend getting this CD.

This CD was a good find for me. I have another Rhino Everly Brothers CD that contains what I thought was their best collection. Although it is good and I listen to it very often, I realized there was one song I remembered but didn't have. It was Poor Jenny. So I started looking around and found this CD, and I'm glad I did. Not only is Poor Jenny (although in stero and not the original mono) great to hear again, but so are a couple others I didn't have and had forgotten. As is Poor Jenny, these are B sides that created double sided hits. I Wonder If I care As Much, and Claudette are just as memorable for me as all their other hits.

The tone quality on this CD is excellent, though some are in stereo, they are the originals and come through with a clarity that, along with the harmony and style that is unique to the Everly Brothers, makes every song on this CD very enjoybalbe to listen to. This CD now gives me every Everly's hit I remember, and if you are an Everly Brothers fan, or oldies fan, who is missing some memories like I was, I recommend this CD to fill that void. It is a well done collection from one of the Hall of Fame early rock and roll greats.

The Everly Brothers/ Cadence Classics Their 20 greatest Hits: Well, there is good news and bad news about this disk. The good news is that these are the original recordings (as there are several collections out there that contain remakes of these songs that the Everly's had to do because of old contractual problems). The Bad news is that a few of their Greatest Hits are not part of this collection (Kathy's Clown being the biggest omission). Now it is true that "Kathy's Clown" was not one of the Cadence recordings, but then Cadence should not have titled this CD "Their 20 greatest hits" without including one of their biggest. As I bought this CD years ago, I realized the omissions and got a second CD that included those missing songs. These days (2011) I really don't know how to advise you as several of the CD's available simply don't tell you which contain the Original Hits and which have remakes. Your just going to have to do a little research to find what you want and where you can get it...the record companies have not made the chore easy. This collection is great, but just a 3 ½ star album because of the omissions and the slightly deceptive album title.
