When asked recently for the most memorable moment of his career, Phil Everly replied the Albert Hall reunion . It was
September 1983 - ten years on from one of the most acrimonious splits in popular music history- when the Everly
Brothers, Don and Phil, took to the stage at London s Royal Albert Hall. One of the most successful duos of all time, the
Everlys had dominated the charts in the late fifties and early to mid sixties. Their close harmony singing, acoustic guitars and
brilliant songwriting had become instantly recognizable and inspired millions of fans worldwide. On an emotional night in
London, the reunion was an unqualified success and led to the renewal of their partnership on an ongoing basis and many more
years of success, which continue to this day.

We watch this over and over.
I had the audio cassette in the 80s and liked to listen to it in my car. After almost 30 years of not hearing their voices, this DVD is pure magic.
The sound is great, their more mature voices missing some of that 50s country twang and the chemistry between them is obviously real despite the ten years of acrimony. You can't fake the look of love you see in this concert.
The show begins with Roy Orbison's Claudette and ends with an incredible take on Let It Be Me. In between is a pretty comprehensive set list which, unfortunately for me, omits one of my faves, So Sad (To Watch Good Love Go Bad). Oh, well...
The brothers stand somewhat sideways at a double mic supported by a single stand with their familiar white-edged black acoustic guitars. Behind them is an excellent five-piece backing band. There are frequent standing ovations but no encores.
The Rock 'n Roll Odyssey doc is disappointing if you are looking for a good comprehensive documentary, but I expected as much and didn't care. The color and sharpness of the ageing video is also less than stellar. Nevertheless, just watching the concert was wonderful for me and I recommend it highly .
