Born into music, Don and Phil began performing as children in the mids. Their father Ike Everly, an accomplished guitarist, hosted a variety of rural radio programs which eventually incorporated his whole family.
Wife Margaret and sons Don born February 1, and Phil born January 9, all took their turns at the mic in varying combinations as they honed their harmony skills. However, by the family's format had reached its end. As recorded music overtook the need for live performers, Don and Phil became infatuated with introducing rock and rhythm and blues flavors to their standard folk and country repertoire. The mid-'50s found the family struggling to survive. Ike and Margaret worked odd jobs to support their sons' burgeoning musical career, while Don and Phil focused on songwriting and knocking on doors near Nashville.
Their first recording deal with Columbia was a fleeting failure and it was not until the duo met up with Wesley Rose that they were truly on the path to success.
The Everly Brothers CD : Rock And Roll (CD) - Bear Family Records
Being one of the most powerful music magnates in Nashville and the owner of the colossal Acuff Rose publishing company , Wesley Rose found the brothers a home with East Coast indie label Cadence Records. Rose further coupled Don and Phil with the husband and wife writing team of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, and the rest is, as they say, history.
But by , the Everlys and many of their label mates had departed from Cadence and the charts. Resultantly, founder Archie Bleyer sold his musical assets to former signee, singer Andy Williams.
Although Williams held back the Everly masters for six years, saw the first in a flood of nostalgic reissues of the duo's Cadence recordings a trend which continues to this day. Nevertheless, these collections are simply a shuffling of the same forty songs the brothers cut for the label. Compiled entirely from outtakes and demos, this set lifted the lid on what still remained within the Cadence archive. Bear Family's 'Classic Everly Brothers' BCD box set further collected these outtakes with a few added obscurities, giving enthusiasts and historians a more complete picture of what occurred during those times.
Now, some twenty years later, Everly fans are once again allowed back into the archive to hear a newly unearthed set of working versions and musical sketches from that magical era. A compelling study of the creative process behind the legendary Cadence masters, this set gives one a fresh perspective on these, the Everlys' most popular sides.
