Limited 180gm white vinyl LP pressing. The blending of Don and Phil Everly's voices is truly one of the great sounds of post-war American popular music. Derived from folk and traditional styles brought to the USA via immigrant communities, their seamless vocal harmonies had it's precursors in mid-twentieth century duo/family country music acts such as the Louvin Brothers, Delmore Brothers and many others. The Everlys, however, were able to bring the fraternal harmony approach into the mainstream pop market of the late 1950s by dint of their youth, good looks, and that other, far more elusive quality - timing. This LP rounds up the Cadence singles A- and B-sides that didn't feature on their debut album, and is thus home to these perennially-popular worldwide hits, most of which went Top 10 in the US and UK: 'All I Have To Do Is Dream', 'Claudette', 'Bird Dog', 'Problems', 'Devoted To You', 'Take A Message To Mary', '('Til) I Kissed You', 'Let It Be Me', 'Poor Jenny' and 'When Will I Be Loved'. The inner sleeve features annotation by Alan Robinson.
