Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Malheureusement peu connu chez nous, ce duo vocal peut se vanter d'avoir influencé les Beatles et Simon & Garfunkel. Enfants de la balle, stars de la radio dès leur plus jeune âge, Phil et Don Everly ont remporté un succès immense avec des ballades pop et un rock'n'roll élégant aux harmonies vocales parfaites. Ils reprennent la tradition des duos vocaux issue de la country mais l'adaptent aux mélodies pop. "Bye Bye Love", "Wake Up Little Susie", "All I Have To Do Is Dream" sont autant de tubes entraînants et frais qui racontent les affres de la vie quotidienne des teenagers à la fin des années cinquante. --Hubert Deshouse

5.0 out of 5 stars The exception to the rule... May 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the one and ONLY re-recorded hits package I have ever liked or would recommend to anyone. Normally I hate albums with phony re-recorded versions of original songs. But the re-recorded songs on this album are something special, actually IMPROVING on the originals! Don and Phil took special pains to insure that these songs would remain absolutely faithful to the originals, recruiting many of the original session musicians along with song writer Boudleaux Bryant and producer Wesley Rose on hand in the studio. Together they remade 6 classics from the Cadence era (the 6 other songs featured here from their Warner years are the original versions). The Everly's still had those magic vocals and the musicians were well-rehearsed and up to the task. What's so great about these remakes is that they've managed to maintain the soul of the originals while making vast improvements to the overall sound quality. The music is full, rich, and blends beautifully with those awesome Everly Brothers 2-part harmonies. All the songs included here are in true stereo except "Ebony Eyes" which is rechanneled. Are they 100% indistinguishable from the originals? Well, no. So I can't recommend this to someone who just wants the originals. For those folks, I recommend picking up "All-Time Original Hits" instead. But for those who want to hear a little something more from the Everly's, this is a great choice. I only wish they included a few more of their early Cadence hits since these are without a doubt the best remakes I have ever heard. Like I said, the exception to the rule.

5.0 out of 5 stars the rest of the story... Dec 7 2000
Format:Audio CD
All right, it's true, the Cadence songs on this CD are NOT the recordings that were done in the 50s that were the big hits.
BUT, these recordings are in beautiful stereo, cut with the same recording team that had scored big with Cathy's Clown. So, though these ARE remakes, they were done when the Everly Brothers were still flying high, with a crack band and great production. Are you telling me that the world can't handle, doesn't want, a mono AND a stereo version of "All I Have to Do is Dream"?
As far as I know, this is the only place you can get these really great stereo remakes of the Cadence classics. It's not the place to start with the Everlys, true enough. But if you love these guys and want a little further ear candy, want to hear those Cadence classics done with the same breathtaking production that you heard from the early Warner Brothers material, then you will be bowled over by this CD. I was.

3.0 out of 5 stars You Can Do Better.... Dec 15 2002
Format:Audio CD
Unless you're actually looking for the 1964 Warner Bros. re-recordings of the 1950's Cadence tracks, you can pass on this one. As re-recordings go, these are excellent, but most folks would rather have the original hit versions. For the best domestic single-disc compilation, pick up Rhino's "All Time Original Hits" from 1999. "Original Hits" features the original versions of the Everly's biggest hits, including classics like "Let It Be Me" and "When Will I Be Loved" that are conspicuously absent from Warner's old "Very Best Of" album. My only knock on "All Time Original Hits" is that there was plenty of room for lesser gems like "Claudette", "Gone, Gone, Gone" and "Bowling Green" that seldom appear on Everly "Best Of" discs.

I have this collection on vinyl and I'd like to tell you not to buy this collection all of the hits that they originally recorded on Cadence are remakes and not the original Cadence recordings. For the original versions, they are on CD's issued by Rhino, Ace, Bear Family and other labels (one of the notable CD's is Rhino's "Cadence Classics: 20 Greatest Hits"). The tracks that were not on Cadence are available on other collections that Warner Bros. has issued such as the "Walk Right Back" 2 CD set and the "Golden Hits of The Everly Brothers" so buy those collections instead of this collection.
