Biography by Richie Unterberger. Close harmony masters from Kentucky who also formed one of the most artistic and popular rock acts of the 1950s and early '60s.
Though The Everly Brothers had already spent 1957 scoring hit singles, their 1958 debut album was the world's first extended exposure to Don and Phil Everly's innovative sounds. They took the first-wave rock 'n' roll of trailblazers like Little Richard and Gene Vincent (both of whom are covered here) and combined it with the kind of close, two-part vocal harmonies favored by bluegrass and country duos like The Louvin Brothers and The Stanley Brothers.
