Here’s why this album should be in your collection!

All of the hit songs by the Everly Brothers, and dozens more (!!) are in the 4-disc box set Heartaches and Harmonies (1994).

Donald and Phillip Everly began their careers as backup singers on the live shows their parents hosted at radio stations KMF and KFNF in Shenandoah, Iowa. The legendary Chet Atkins, a family friend, encouraged the brothers to perform as a duo.

After several unsuccessful starts, they signed with Cadence Records in 1957 and recorded the hit: “Bye Bye Love.” While their hit playlist grew, the Everly Brothers toured with the greatest rock band of their era: Buddy Holly and The Crickets.

This box set contains “Bye Bye Love” along with hits like “Wake Up Little Susie,” “This Little Girl of Mine,” “All I Have to Do is Dream,” “Bird Dog,” “Let It Be Me,” “Cathy’s Clown,” “Ebony Eyes,” and 96 (!!!) other songs.

This album is available in CD format from major vendors. Please consider purchasing it from a local independent record store. And please be patient; demand following Phil Everly’s death in 2014 makes it hard to keep in stock.

Here’s an interesting fact!

On February 3, 1959, a plane carrying Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson to a concert date crashed near Clear Lake, Iowa. Don McLean referred to the tragedy as “The Day the Music Died” in his legendary folk-rock single, “American Pie.” Phil Everly was a pallbearer at Holly’s funeral.
