Simply - The Everly Brothers ( 42 Essential Tracks)
Released: Oct 2011
Label: DLG Digital
With 42 tracks, the majority of which even passing fans will be familiar with, this compilation of the incalculably influential duo's music is all some folks will ever need. While the brothers' blood-close harmonies were rooted in the sacred moves of ancient country, their practice of infusing the newly emerging phenomenon of rock 'n' roll into their often-acoustic guitars represents the very first stirrings of country rock. Simply may not have their totally awesome cover of Roger Miller's "Burma Shave," but it does have "Bird Dog," which is also awesome.
