The Ballads of the Everly Brothers

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
One of two companion Everly Brothers compilations Bear Family released in early 2013, The Ballads of the Everly Brothers contains exactly what the title promises: 30 ballads from the greatest harmony duo of its time. The 30 songs on this single disc were recorded between 1957 and 1962, meaning it favors their big '50s hits for Cadence but also has a smattering of sides for Warner, and its lengthy running time means this doesn't just have hits ("All I Have to Do Is Dream," "Maybe Tomorrow," "Devoted to You," "Take a Message to Mary," "Let It Be Me," "So Sad [To Watch Good Love Go Bad]," "Love Hurts," "Ebony Eyes," "Crying in the Rian"), but also digs deep into ...

It's an excellent way to explore the Everlys' dreamy side in depth, while its cousin comp Rocks showcases their harder side and is equally worthwhile.
