Two Original Albums
From 1957 to 1962 The Everly Brothers sold more than 35 million records and had 35 billboard Top-100 singles, 26 in the top 40, and still to this day, carry the record for most billboard charting hits of any American duo. Their success at that time, was only rivaled by Elvis Presley. This double shot presents two of their classic albums from that era, 1960's It's Everly Time and A Date with the Everly Brothers. The former includes stellar contributions by Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant ("Some Sweet Day," "Sleepless Nights" and "You Thrill Me (Through and Through)"), one of Don's high water marks ("So Sad"), and of course incredible harmonies throughout. The latter includes the smash hit "Cathy's Clown," their raucous cover of Little Richard's "Lucille," "Love Hurts" (which preceded Roy Orbison's hit version) and "So How Come" (covered by the Beatles in 1963).
