The Everly Brothers are among the most influential stars and most legendary duos in contemporary music. Phil and Don transformed the Appalachian folk, bluegrass and country sounds of their Kentucky boyhood, writes the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame abouttheir1986 induction (the Hall's inaugural year), into a richly harmonized form of rock and roll. Their sublime vocal harmonies forged a legacy whose impact could
later be heard in the music of acts including Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills &
Nash. Their 1957 debut single for Cadence Records, Bye Bye Love, charted #2 pop and
#1 country in Billboard®. It opens this truly essential, single-disc collection of their definitive years, which features thirteen classic
hits from Cadence and Warner Bros. Highlights also include the #1 smashes Wake Up Little
Susie, Bird Dog, All I Have To Do Is Dream, and Cathy s Clown.
