Allmusic [1]

Instant Party! is an album by The Everly Brothers, originally released in 1962. It was recorded in Nashville between August and November 1961, shortly after Both Sides of an Evening and it too failed to chart. There is an exclamation point on the cover art but not in theTITLE as shown on the original label.[2]

Critical receptionEdit

The album consisted mainly of older pop tunes, making this release notable in its lack of the duo's normal rock and rollAllmusic stated in its review: "...much of the playing was impeccable, but also,APART from three exceptions, incredibly boring, something the Everlys had never been before. Instant Party! marked a low point in their artistic fortunes..."
