0027. The Everly Brothers – A Date With The Everly Brothers [1960]

Adatewiththeeverlybrothers

The Everly Brothers sound like the Beatles in the early days.  Most of you probably have heard the song, “All I Have To Do Is Dream.”  That’s these guys, and the whole album has that feel to it.

It’s good stuff if you’re in the mood for oldies pop rock.  Yet another one I wouldn’t put on by choice any time soon, but I enjoyed it as part of this project.

Wikipedia Says:

A Date with the Everly Brothers is an album by the rock and roll duo the Everly Brothers, released in 1960. It peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Pop albums charts and reached No. 3 in the UK.

The song “Love Hurts” appears here for the first time. It would subsequently be covered by numerous other artists. Other than the “Cathy’s Clown“/”Always It’s You” single, all of the tracks on A Date with the Everly Brothers were recorded in just four sessions during July 1960.[2]
