For the Everly Brothers enthusiast, the Laserlight series is ideal for accumulating a thorough library of their early Cadence years: the discs pack about ten songs apiece, are budget-friendly, and, while each disc in the series is different, they include both popular and more obscure cuts so that one may collect without fear of duplication. Bye Bye Love captures both the energetic radio persona that made the Everly Brothers popular in mainstream rock & roll and also the more subdued Nashville ballads that remind listeners of their roots and beginnings. Phil and Don bend notes in bluegrass fashion on "Long Time Gone" and croon in warm harmony on classics such as "Love of My Life" and "Brand New Heartache." All are original recordings.
