harmonies-from-heaven-1021Featuring new interview footage with surviving brother Don and archival interviews with Phil, the film follows their career from child performers on their father’s radio show, through their move to Nashville and their relationship with publishers Acuff-Rose. It gives particular attention to the songwriting team of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, who provided many of the Everlys’ early hits, including their first million-seller “Bye Bye Love.”

Broadcast on the BBC earlier this year, the film also features interviews with those inspired by the Everly Brothers including Art Garfunkel, Keith Richards, Graham Nash, Dave Edmunds, Tim Rice, Albert Lee and Waddy Wachtel and on into a younger generation with Jake Bugg.

The second disc in the set features a previously unreleased 1968 performance from Australian TV, Live at Chequers Nightclub, Sydney.
