Synopsis

Amazon.com
Of all the great harmonies in country music, the greatest belong to Ira and Charlie Louvin. Born three years apart on a red-clay Alabama farm, the Louvin Brothers took the sisterly harmonies of the Carter Family and the brotherly tightness of the Monroe and Callahan brothers to new, chilling heights. They redefined duo harmony by interweaving and switching tenor and alto parts, finding fresh, undiscovered colors along the way. The German label Bear Family has compiled an unprecedented history of the Louvins, the only thorough source for the brothers' early, hard-to-find, but exquisite Apollo and MGM recordings. The sonic quality, gorgeous color photography, precise and extensive discography, and notes by country music scholar Charles Wolfe set a new standard for the meticulous Bear boxes. Even at 220 songs, Close Harmony is essential, start to finish. --Roy Kasten

"I highly recommend this set of the Louvin Brothers!

everything ever recorded in one big package that doesn't disappoint.......

on the fence?

did you like the album "Satan Is Real"?
how about the so called greatest hits collections?

this box set has even more and most all are worthy of a hit.
there isn't a slow spot on any of the discs.
every cd in this box could have been a greatest hits disc

The Louvin Brothers are now good friends of mine.

get acquainted with Ira and Charlie
