This two-fer combines two classic records by the Everly Brothers, simply the greatest close harmony duo in rock history. Containing both of the duo's 1958 eponymous debut and the 1984 Rhino compilation THE FABULOUS STYLE OF THE EVERLY BROTHERS, this collection features many of the songs that sent them and their harmonic thirds to the upper reaches of the Billboard charts: "Bye Bye Love," "When Will I Be Loved," "Wake Up Little Suzie," and "All I Have to Do is Dream," among many other lesser known gems. A de facto greatest-hits album, the set is a perfect diving-off point for those interested in the many highlights of the Everlys' early years.
Brothers Grass and Cobra Snake, in their late and early thirties respectively, live in a small Czech town not far from Prague. Coming from a disfunctional family, they both feel unable to build up a life to be satisfied with. Grass, unemployed and still without a girl, does not know how to escape from the shadow of his druggie and troublemaker brother Cobra. Things seem to change for Grass when all at once he gets the opportunity to be part of a promising business and starts a relationship with the waitress of a local pub.
New Orleans' favorite sons, the Neville Brothers, pool their talents again on this CD. Family Groove is a clever reference not only to the musical abilities of the four brothers, but to the shared interests and concerns of the brothers and their families. All the usual Neville elements are here: Charles Neville on the saxophone, Cyril Neville on the drums, Art Neville on piano, and the inimitable voice of Aaron Neville.This is vintage Neville Brothers philosophy delivered as always with the funky beat and unique Neville sound that has captivated fans all over the world.
