Picks and Pans Review: Heartaches & Harmonies

The Everly Brothers

Don and Phil Everly were 15 and 13 years old, respectively, when they sang the plaintive ballad "Don't Let Our Love Die" on their parents' local radio show in Shenandoah, Iowa, in the early '50s. That crude but endearing performance opens this terrific boxed set and gives a preview of the smooth, polished sound that would emerge from the boys just a few short years later in such hits as "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie" and "All I Have to Do Is Dream." Four discs containing 103 songs, clocking in at nearly five hours' worth of listening time, is a lot of Ever-lys—but with a harmonic blend as sweet as theirs, it's time well spent. (Rhino)
