The final chapter in the Everly Brothers' recorded legacy is completed with this third album box set (in Bear Family's series) covering the recorded works of the legendary Everly Brothers. Including all existing masters for their sessions from 1966 through 1972, 'Chained To A Memory' chronologically collects singles, album tracks, outtakes, demos, first-time stereo mixes and rare promos recorded for the Warner Bros. and RCA labels. Material from such albums as 'In Our Image', 'Two Yanks In England', 'The Hit Sound Of The Everly Brothers', 'The Everly Brothers Sing', 'Roots', 'The Everly Brothers Show', 'Stories We Can Tell' and 'Pass The Chicken And Listen' is featured, bringing the Everly Brothers story to their initial split. The set contains 50 previously unissued performances, plus as a bonus a 1965 Swedish concert with Sonny Curtis and Jim Gordon.
The enclosed DVD contains rare clips from 'Hullaballoo,' 'Swingin' Time', 'Hollywood Palace,' and the Petula Clark Special, plus the rare 1959 Swedish Production, 'The Archie Bleyer Show.'
The album box is topped of by a mammoth hardbound book featuring a 1966-1973 day-by-day chronology of Everly Brothers' recording sessions, concerts, as well as radio and television appearances by noted Everly Brothers historian, Andrew Sandoval. The book is illustrated with hundreds of images (many of which are heretofore unseen) and a full discography featuring recording information and extensive personnel credits.
Placed alongside Bear Family's 'Classic Everly Brothers' box (which collected the duo's Columbia and Cadence sides) and last year's 'Price Of Fame,' this is the be-all-and-end-all for Everly Brothers enthusiasts. A must-own collection of music covering the Everlys' repertoire of Rock, Country, Blues, Pop and so much more. Compiled with the greatest care from years of research, this album box set makes all other releases of the Everly Brothers from this era obsolete.
