In the late ’50s, Don and Phil Everly – aka the Everly Brothers – introduced an irresistible blend of country, pop, rock and R&B to the airwaves in a string of era-defining hits, instantly recognisable for the legendary harmonies. As rock and roll was taking shape, singles like Bye Bye Love, All I Have to Do Is Dream, and Wake Up Little Susie influenced a decade of upcoming icons, like The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, The Rolling Stones and many others.  

Between 1957 and 1962 the duo released no less than 15 top ten hits! In fact, no other duo has had more Top 100 hits in the history of music. With their catchy melodies and pitch-perfect harmonies, the Everly Brothers were one of the first acts to be elected to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and, in 1997, were awarded a lifetime achievement award at the Grammys.

Below, might be the brothers’ finest performances of one of their most beloved hits, All I Have to Do Is Dream – a much-deserved number one single in 1958 – live on The Ed Sullivan Show. Enjoy!
