AllMusic Review by

The Everly Brothers' Cadence sides of the late '50s feature some of the duo's best work. Shooting to stardom in their wake, the Brothers' many Cadence highlights include "Bye Bye Love," "Wake Up Little Susie," "All I Have to Do Is Dream," "Problems," and "When Will I Be Loved." All of these were represented on the original 12-song LP, which also provided a heavy dose of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant's incredible songs -- on top of a handful of classics authored by the Everlys themselves -- not to mention the chance to hear of some of the best Nashville players of the day. Maybe not as attractive as Rhino's Everly roundups (one features both the Cadence sides and their subsequent Warner Bros. hit), this original Cadence compilation still holds up nicely after almost half-a-century.
