101: Cathy's Clown [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import, 4PC)
2012 four CD set. The Everly Brothers were not only among the most important and best early rock & roll stars, but also among the most influential rockers of any era. They set unmatched standards for close, two-part harmonies and infused early rock & roll with some of the best elements of country and pop music. Their legacy was and is felt enormously in all rock acts that employ harmonies as prime features, from the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and legions of country-rockers to modern-day roots rockers. From their start in 1956 to 1962 they topped the charts in the UK, USA and Canada with eight of their singles, and enjoyed over 20 Top 10 hits in the same period, all of which are included on this 101 Hits boxset.
