COLLECTORS CHOICE

RELEASE
15 original Warner albums. Titles include:

It's Everly Time, A Date With, Both Sides Of An Evening, Instant Party, Great Country Hits, Gone Gone Gone, Rock 'n' Soul, Beat 'n' Soul, In Our Image, Two Yanks In England, Hit Sound, Sing, Roots, The Everly Brothers Show and The New Album

RELEASE DATE
All titles have been made available in May/June 2005

COMMENTS
Before Warner UK was able to release their Everly Brothers output Collectors Choice snapped up the rights to aforementioned albums and released them in the US without any extra tracks. As they used the same masters that Warner already had prepared it all sounds wonderful. Especially of interest is The New Album from 1977 which contains rare Everly tracks from the Warner vaults and has never been released before on CD.


RHINO FLASHBACK

RELEASE
Christmas with The Everly Brothers (original Warner Album from 1962)

RELEASE DATE
Available now !

COMMENTS
Warner decided to keep this seasonal classic for themselves by way of releasing it through their subsidiary label 'Rhino Flashback'. Alas there are no extra tracks on this release.

As Warner UK probably won't be finishing what they have started 4 years ago the fantastic label from Germany Bear Family Records decided to give it a go. 14 discs containing each and every recording the Everlys produced for Warner and RCA.
