5.0 out of 5 stars Real country music July 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this CD thinking that it was the first volume only of Time Life's Great Story Songs from their Classic Country series, and was pleasantly surprised to receive both volumes of Great Story Songs (Vols. 1 and 2). This is the kind of music that I grew up listening to, and is what I consider to be real country music, to which the modern "Nashville pop" really does not compare, regardless of who's making money out of it. If you enjoy traditional American country music, then I highly recommend this set, as well as other volumes in the Classic Country series.

Update: due to several requests, I am including a track listing for the item I received:

5.0 out of 5 stars 20 Time Life Epic Country Story-Songs January 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Great Story Songs / Classic Country series / Time Life single CD: Every great Country song is a `story song' but this CD has 20 of the EPIC stories told in Country Classic Songs. From Marty Robbins' "El Paso" to Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down To Georgia", this is a Great Five Star CD.

A little info on the Time Life Country Classics:

Time Life has single CDs under the title of "Best of Classic Country" divided into decades so there is a single CD under that name for the "50's", "60's", "70's" and "80's".

Time Life also has many single CDs under the general term of "Country Classics". These titles include:
- Kings of Country
- Queens of Country
- God, Family, Country
- Road songs
- Great Story Songs
- More Great Story Songs
- Crazy Country Hits
- Sweet Country Ballads
- Honky Tonk Heroes
- Great Country Gospel
and several (many many) more titles. These disks are all very good to great, but there is a lot of songs that are repeated from one disk to another.
