AllMusic Review by

This single disc of the Everly Brothers' rockabilly and early rock & roll hits issued by Time Life is a stellar -- if incomplete -- collection. Concentrating mostly on A-sides, it features many of the pair's well-known hits, including "Bye Bye Love," "Cathy's Clown," "When Will I Be Loved?," "Let It Be Me," Felice & Boudleaux Bryant's "All I Have to Do Is Dream," Roy Orbison's "Claudette," and Carole King's "Crying in the Rain." There is also a truly curious -- but credible -- reading of Little Richard Penniman's "Lucille" included here. There are 22 cuts in all, and the sound is warm, natural, and full.
