Roots (The Everly Brothers album). Roots is a 1968 studio album by close harmony rock and roll duo The Everly Brothers. Originally on the Warner Bros. label, the album was re-released on CD in 1995 by Warner Bros. and in 2005 by Collectors' Choice Music. The album is a classic example of early country rock. On its release, Roots was not a commercial success for The Everly Brothers, failing to widen their fanbase in spite of their excursion into the new field of country rock.

The Everly Brothers is the 1958 eponymous debut album of close harmony rock and roll duo The Everly Brothers. The album peaked at No. 16 on Billboard's "pop albums" chart and launched three very successful singles. Originally on the Cadence label, (CLP-3003), the album was re-released on LP in 1988 by EMI and on CD in 2000 by Emporio Records. It was re-released again in 2009 on 180-gram vinyl by Doxy music.

LINER NOTES FOR THE EVERLY BROTHERS' ROOTS By Richie Unterberger. For several years following the British Invasion, the Everly Brothers had tried various approaches to recapture the large audience they'd enjoyed in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They'd recorded two albums of rock'n'roll oldies and soul covers; gone to London to cut an LP largely written by the Hollies; and absorbed elements of the British Invasion, folk-rock, and soul music into numerous singles. The result was an album that showcased a maturing Everly Brothers, more subdued than the past perhaps, yet also imbued with the knowing wisdom that comes from scaling to superstardom and struggling to recapture it. From the pure country side came two Merle Haggard tunes, "Mama Tried" and "Sing Me Back Home," and "You Done Me Wrong," first done by country icon Ray Price, and given a circus-like treatment here.

On its release, Roots was not a commercial success for The Everly Brothers, failing to widen their fanbase in spite of their excursion into the new field of country rock.
