While inessential for all but serious Everly Brothers fanatics, this collection of studio outtakes and alternate versions, most from the early half of the '60s, is not a bad thing to have if you want to get your hands on as much as possible. The sound, while not state-of-the-art, is certainly okay; some of these may have shown up on various quasi-legal reissues in Europe, although it's really difficult to ascertain unless you have a mammoth Everlys library. Some of the songs are awful ("The Sheik of Araby"), but a significantly different version of "Temptation," with stop-and-go bursts of guitar, is a highlight, as is the 1964 outtake "I Think of Me." Scholars will appreciate the February 1960 rehearsal tapes of "Like Strangers" (nine takes) and "When Will I Be Loved" (five takes), which aren't wonderful as pure listening, but do yield some insight into how the songs were crafted and changed before their final versions. The LP also has a couple of live recordings from the 1980s.
