THE VERY BEST OF THE EVERLY BROTHERS
Phil and Don Everly had earned a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before the ink had even dried on their Warner Bros. contract; later Top 10 singles like “Cathy's Clown,” “Walk Right Back” and “Crying In The Rain” only added to their legacy. That fact was reflected on 1964's THE VERY BEST OF THE EVERLY BROTHERS collection, whose dozen tracks were split evenly between songs from their earlier Cadence period and their WB hits. While these versions of those Cadence classics (including “Bye Bye Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie” and “All I Have To Do Is Dream”) are re-recordings, they're faithful to the original arrangements, feature some of the original session men and capture the siblings' matchless harmonies with much greater fidelity in true stereo versions only available here. THE VERY BEST OF THE EVERLY BROTHERS features some of the most memorable pop-rock of the pre-Beatles era.
