5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Buy 13 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This in an overwhelming 5 CD release with 100 of the best songs recordings done by the Everly Brothers during the late 1950's throughout the 1960's. Incredible that you can get so much good music at such a low price.

Obviously it is a very stripped-down release with no booklet and no information about the songs and their origin. If you're interested in finding out the songs, you'll need to do some research yourself. What you have here is simple the music, which really sounds great. I have compared some of the songs with the same from couple of "Collector's Choice" albums that I have. My conclusion is that I'm not able top tell any difference. They sound like the exact same masterings.

There is no strict chronological order, but the oldest tracks ( Cadence ) are found on CD1 while the most recent tracks are on CD5.

Most of their albums are represented with 3-6 tracks, and the selections are really well chosen. The large majority of their most important releases from the period are included here. Quite a few rarities have also found their way to the collection; I do believem though, that they all have been previously released.

The music documents nicely that the brothers were among the most influential acts of the late 1950's and that they thoughout the 1960 came up with great music that matched bands like the Monkees, the Hollies or the Searchers.

By HAYLING BOOK & MUSIC VENUE (HBMV) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Although the packaging is a little naff and the booklet light weight, the content is well worth the price. Here we have 5 CDs loaded with hits, misses and album tracks from this fabulous duo. What struck me was the consistently high standard of material throughout the set - very little filler here and for me, a great way of exploring beyond those well known hits. Whether you're new to the Everlys or boosting your collection, this is to be recommended for all the right reasons. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'A TRIBUTE TO MUSIC LEGENDS' 4 Jan 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Unlike an earlier reviewer, I have heard all the tracks sung by the Everlys
before as I'm sure any true followers have.
I, like many I'm sure was deeply saddened and upset to hear the news that
'Phil Everly' had passed away 3rd January 2014 aged 74.
The Everlys were certainly my first real obsession music-wise, I remember
going to the music stores buying their new releases on the first day many, many
times.
I was indeed fortunate and privileged to have had the opportunity seeing the
Brothers perform live back in the early sixties, except, on the first occasion
'Don' had returned to the States with health issues, 'Phil' continued the tour
performing solo, loved it, he was a terrific vocalist.
I did, a few years later get to see both....for me, pretty special, great memories.
Sadly when they done their farewell tour a couple of years ago, I was unable to
go.......wish I could have.
The Everlys were one of the 'hottest' acts during the late 50's and early 60's
achieving an impressive list of chart entries.
Both had great vocal ability, it was the beautifully performed harmonies that
they delivered time after time that gave them so much in the way of admiration and
indeed success.
Many artists were inspired by the music and sound the Brothers.
I don't believe we will ever see the likes again, perhaps the closest duo in terms
of quality were to my mind 'Simon and Garfunkel'
I myself own a heap of material both on 'Vinyl' and on 'CD'(including this 5-CD set)_
The Everlys actualy even had a Top 20 hit with an 'L.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money 8 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
The good news: (1) both Cadence and Warner Bros recordings are included, (2) all the Everlys' hits are here, (3) "Bye Bye Love", "Wake Up Little Susie", All I Have To Do Is Dream", "Bird Dog", and "Till I Kissed You" are the original Cadence recordings not the Warner Bros 1963 re-recordings, (4) excellent value for money.
The bad news: (1) the tracks are not in recording date order, (2) very little information in the accompanying 8 page booklet. This is why I have scored only 4 stars.
