This box set spans the years 1955-1960 and includes demos, radio transcriptions and a 12 x 12 44-page booklet with notes and photos.
The three-disc box set Classic Everly Brothers collects all of their Cadence recordings, including alternate takes, as well as several early radio shows and the four tracks the duo recorded for Columbia in 1955. While this music is the most essential the brothers ever made, the disc of rarities is only of interest to devoted fans. Nevertheless, the sound on the box is stellar, the liner notes are excellent, and the whole package is wonderful; for hardcore fans, the set is worth the money. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
