Dan Einstein, Television Archivist, UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Directed by Marty Pasetta

The Everly Brothers, Don and Phil, had guested on many music and variety shows by the time they became TV headliners with this summer-replacement series in 1970. Though it lasted only three months, "Johnny Cash Presents The Everly Brothers Show" rides high on the Everly's engaging personalities, gorgeous harmonies and rapport with fellow musicians. The Archive has compiled a selection of highlights from seven of the show's 10 broadcasts, including musical numbers by Don and Phil, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, Tina Turner and Stevie Wonder. This program also includes a compilation of the Everly Brothers pre-1970 TV appearances, featuring many of their early hits.

Executive Producer: Harold D. Cohen, Joe Byrne. Producer: Bernie Kukoff, Jeff Harris. Writer: David Pollock, Elias Davis, Mike Settle, Jeff Harris, Bernie Kukoff, Allyn Ferguson. Music: Jack Elliott. Host: Don Everly, Phil Everly.
