What can you say about the fabulous Brothers Everly that hasn't been said already? Presented in booklet style format, which I'm not too keen on, this great cheapo cheapo collection features 40 of their most well known recordings, spread across two CDs, and covers the whole period right across the years of massive hits they produced on the Cadence label (out over here on London), to some of their later stuff released when they changed labels to Warner Bros. and even re-recorded some of their earlier hits, as seems to be the norm whenever a big money spinning act signs over to a new outfit. There are none of those here as everything is copyrighted to the Charly label, which seems to specialize in only the originals when re-releasing whole packages that deal with a particular artist's career. This one is attributed to a Company called Sound Vision, which I suppose is a suitable name because they include a DVD as well. Of course, for economy reasons, there's no informative booklet included listing data such as session dates, venues, musicians, producers etc. (I believe the late great Chet Atkins was involved somewhere along the line, although he's usually associated mostly with RCA). This goes to make other collections that do provide this sort of information more worthy of storing on the shelf as a true collector's classic, just to have and to hold for ever for ever, even though you might only play it just once a year! They've also seen fit to throw in this 'bonus' DVD of the famous Reunion Concert they put on at London's Royal Albert Hall back in 1983. Normally on the proper full length release, you get as much as 120 minutes, but unfortunately there's only 75 minutes of it here. However, the boys are looking into each others eyes again, getting their harmonies right, joking and smiling once more after their big time bust up they had on stage a decade earlier. Albert Lee, that genius of the fret board, was given the privilege of forming a British back up band for the show, and how sympathetically they perform against that wonderful picking, white jackets and all. On the fuller versions of the concert, they even had their own set whilst the (no longer) Boys took a well earned interval to both rest and wipe the sweat away -- so where's that gone, I wonder? With a similar line up, Albert released his own particular version of the Everly's 'Let It Be Me', and managed to sound just like either Don or Phil doing their own thing ... but that's for another review. Anyway, for the price, this package is a worthy effort, especially now that Phil has sadly passed away, but how pleased they both must have felt that they'd managed to heal up their differences long before that happened.

Have been meaning to get this for ages. Held back because I already had the audio which really shows the Everlys at their best. The DVD adds that extra dimension and is very enjoyable.

Very satisfied with the CDs

However I was disappointed that the wall light accessories were not included ie screws and stick-on tape hence why it was returned.

Bought this as a present but couldn't resist a sneaky listen myself. Great sound, good choice of songs, plus the extra DVD which we were in the audience for all those years ago. Expect this to appeal to all real fans.

It's just a pity that disc one running order is not as stated on the sleeve. Their voices in their reunion concert hadn't lost any of their magic and, as ever, were in perfect harmony in their unique style. Sadly the quality of the two CD's is a little lack lustre but it seems that these were taken from Hallmark 'bargain' LP's and not the Warner originals. Still a bargain for the fans!!

This is a really a wonderful package at a wonderful price, Grab it quick while you.can before it goes. Great songs on two CDs and a really good DVD to complete the boxed set. Easy listening - a touch of Country - rock - ballads that should appeal to many. Well recorded.

The CD for all Everley fans but beware the sound is not as sharp as it could perhaps have been.
