Released in 1958 at the height of their initial success, the Everly Brothers' second album abandons the rootsy rock and roll sound of hits like "Wake Up Little Susie" and "Bye Bye Love" in favour of the sort of traditional Appalachian ballads Phil and Don heard and played while growing up in Kentucky. Not surprisingly, the brothers' close-harmony singing style works perfectly with songs like "Down in the Willow Garden", "Barbara Allen" and "Roving Gambler". While there are no real "hits" here, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us is a solid record full of heartfelt performances--only the most stonyhearted listener could fail to be moved by their rendition of Gene Autry's "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine". --Dan Epstein

Nobody did close, two-part harmonies like Don and Phil Everly, who made anything they sang sound better. The Everly Brothers were at the heights of their popularity as rock 'n' roll stars in 1959 when they put out "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us," a collection of traditional songs from Appalachia. Granted, nothing here is as memorable as any of their hits, but they certainly bring the same superb harmonies to traditional standards such as "Barbara Allen" and more contemporary works such as "Long Time Gone." There is also a nice update of the 1930s country song, "I'm Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail." I actually checked out this album because of the last song, "Put My Little Shoes Away," which was an extremely maudlin little ballad that was popular at the turn of the century. I keep thinking that these songs are not as good as the rock 'n' roll standards that made the Everly Brothers famous, but I really cannot find a reason to mark this album down.

Don and Phil go right back to their own back yard with this seminal album - a must for any serious Everly Fanatic. The songs they first sang with their parents are all here - and yes some may be overly sentimental but there is a simplicity in the sentiment that places them firmly amoung folk classics. These songs, with their home-spun morality come from a tradition that says 'if you cant read the stories then set the stories to music and sing them that way they will never be forgotten.
The themes are universal poverty.love. death and yes - deeply unfashionable - family values.
A boy unable to raise the fare home jumps the Lightning Express to see his dying mother - the song is saved from bathos by - yes the superb harmony of the brothers that is the the hall mark of their enduring appeal. Phil Everly takes a note from heaven in the the sinister Willow Garden, a version of the better known Banks of the Ohio and the earlier Irish version Banks of te O.B.D. and Barbara Allen in an unfamiliar setting is deceptively simple. They sing together, they never miss a beat, they sing with conviction, clarity and immaculate precision. The Ev's at the very heart of their music. This music is not for the swinging teenager or vintage rocker, it's for anyone who has searched for their own roots and here will find familiar resonance.

Songs Our Daddy Taught Us

I bought this after reading one very good review, and listening to bits of the songs on MP3 download option, the bits I heard and also from the previous review made me buy it straight away. I have loved the Everly Brothere since my Teens and I am now retired and still love them!! The combination of their voices still sends shivers down my spine as it did all those years ago. I must admit I have not heard many of these songs before, but the whole CD is a gem! wonderful songs - very very moving, and I first played it after it arrived whilst I was having my evening meal, big mistake as I was in tears by the time it got to the "Lightening Express"! that poor little boy on the train without his fare, it was too much for me , the songs are very very beautiful and I found myself listening to every word, and crying!! I am more familiar with the Rock and Roll songs , but this is such a treasure of beautiful songs sad, but none the worse for that, I cannot pick out a favourite -I loved the whole CD - my love for them remains constant!

Not many could make such a potentially depressing string of material so memorable.

As an early interval from their Rock n' Teenage Agst rollercoaster success, the Evs took time to accompany baseman Floyd 'Lightning' Chance into the studio and tape a dozen heartrending songs, mostly from age-old traditional sources.

They loved [of course]; pleaded to see mother 'before God takes her away...'; were 'a long time gone'. They pondered over 'an old mother....rocking alone...', then sang of "That Silver Haired Daddy..."....and even of the murdered Rose Connolly.... But nothing...nothing breaks your heart more than "Put My Little Shoes Away". As it fades, to end the whole affair, you just want to play it all over again. Because it's just beautiful....

An early girl friend and I dared to turn the lights down, in the front room...and listened. Her tears were only greater than mine...we were teenagers.

That's what Don and Phil could do to you.

It only works beacause of their perfection...both in harmony and timing.

Forever endearing. It's another 'must'.
