The close, two-part harmonies of brothers Don & Phil Everly -- coupled with a deep country background and a sharp, melodic pop sense -- yielded several huge hits for the duo in the late '50s and early '60s.

Following some early country-styled recordings for Columbia Records, the Everly Brothers moved on to Cadence Records, where they added some pop sheen to their Appalachian-derived harmony vocals and, thanks to a Boudleaux & Felice Bryant song that cruised along on a shave-and-a-haircut rhythm, had a massive hit in 1957 with "Bye Bye Love," the first of several hits the brothers would score for Cadence in the next three years before departing for Warner Bros.

in 1960. They had some big songs with Warner, as well, including "Cathy's Clown" and "Walk Right Back," and throughout those gorgeous harmonies were at the center of everything. This two-disc set spans the Everly Brothers' time with both Cadence and Warner, making it an ideal introduction to the duo's commercial peak. The inclusion of the Paul McCartney-penned "On the Wings of a Nightingale" is a nice plus.
