Complete Us & UK Singles: 1956-62
The rock 'n' roll explosion of the late '50's encompassed artists with a range of highly individual styles, and there is no doubt that The Everly Brothers' sound was one of the most distinctive of those, as they enjoyed a string of hits which were very much characterized by their country roots and their close harmonies. Over the first key seven years of their career encompassed by this collection, their records consistently charted on both sides of the Atlantic as they racked up a succession of hits, comprising rockers and plaintive ballads alike, which have become timeless classics of the genre. Supplied with a remarkable series of brilliant songs by the legendary team of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, many of their records, with their trademark harmonies, were landmark reference points for teenage pop fans of the era. This great value 75-track comprises the A and B sides of all their singles in the UK and USA during the period - the B sides are of a consistently high quality and deserve a wider audience - along with all the tracks from their EPs (which also made up their first two albums) plus tracks from their third LP in 1960 It's Everly Time. It's a collectable slice of rock 'n' roll history, which is a fine showcase for their unique talent.
