The early hits from one of early rock and roll's most famous groups.
2007 | Label: Barnaby Records / The Orchard

In the vinyl reaches of my record collection, nestled deep within a section I think of as Golden Age (though it means I, too, am turning 24karat) is a Cadence album featuring two visages of sculptural classicism, posed against a blue background that emphasizes their royalty to a youthful obsessive setting forth on his music collecting odyssey. It is the first album I ever bought, and though I don't remember where (possibly Klein's department store… read more »

Amazing

These vocals blow me away. I love the song All I have to do is dream.

Dang, these sure sound like the hit versions

Okay, it IS hard to declare for certain that these are the original radio hits when your only reference is a 50+ year-old memory. But these songs are from my early teen years when I virtually lived inside my radio, and I hear nothing in them to make me suspect their authenticity. If they are re-creations, somebody sure went to a lot of effort to make them sound right.

Nothing like it!

No one has ever sounded like the close knit harmony of The Everly Brothers and this album contains a bunch of their hits. Well worth downloading.

The Everly Brothers are wonderful and their harmonies are magical. Highly recommended.

Sounds good to me

Downloaded Wake Up Little Susie and All I Have To Do Is Dream and if they aren't originals, they're so close I can't tell the difference.

it's them but not the originals

perfectteeth

These are The Everlys, but in a 1960's session. Not the originals.

The Real Deal

pvkirby

Unlike so many oldies on Emusic, these are the original recordings of these classic songs. Check the credits - Floyd Cramer on piano, produced by Chet Atkins. They say that the Beatles based their harmonies on the Everly Brothers, and you can hear it in some of these. This has some of the B sides of their hits, so you might want to just pick the songs that you've heard before instead of downloading the entire album.

10 Overlooked Everly Brothers Albums

By Dan Epstein, Contributor

In 1960, when the Everly Brothers signed a 10-year, million-dollar recording contract with Warner Bros. — the most lucrative artist deal in music biz history at the time — rock 'n' roll's most influential brother act was coming off an incredible three-year run of hit singles like "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have to Do Is Dream" and "(Till) I Kissed You." But the Everlys never again topped the charts after… more »

They Say All Music Guide

The Everly Brothers’ Cadence sides of the late ’50s feature some of the duo’s best work. Shooting to stardom in their wake, the Brothers’ many Cadence highlights include “Bye Bye Love,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” “Problems,” and “When Will I Be Loved.” All of these were represented on the original 12-song LP, which also provided a heavy dose of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant’s incredible songs — on top of a handful of classics authored by the Everlys themselves — not to mention the chance to hear of some of the best Nashville players of the day. Maybe not as attractive as Rhino’s Everly roundups (one features both the Cadence sides and their subsequent Warner Bros. hit), this original Cadence compilation still holds up nicely after almost half-a-century. – Stephen Cook & Bruce Eder
