AllMusic Review by

This entry in Rhino Records' extra-value double CD best-of series showcases the Everly Brothers' talent and youthful energy, featuring a wide selection of their original hits, including "Bird Dog," "Wake Up, Little Susie," and "Crying in the Rain." The pair's late-1950s and early-'60s success, coming just before the advent of the British Invasion represented perhaps the last time rock & roll music could be seen as innocent, romantic, and devoid of the R&B-inspired eroticism first introduced by Elvis Presley and later by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
