Editorial Reviews

Spanning five discs and well over one hundred tracks -- featuring all of the songs he cut for Capitol in the late '50s and early '60s, including alternate takes and unreleased material -- Leonard contains too much Tommy Collins for anyone but completists and historians. Nevertheless, it is the only collection of Collins' prime material to appear on CD. Collins was very influential and he deserves this deluxe box set treatment, but a single disc collection is needed -- it would make his music available to country fans that simply can't afford a box set of this magnitude, but still want to hear the singer. If you can afford Leonard, it's a worthwhile investment for dedicated country music fans, but there isn't enough first-rate material on the box to justify the expense for listeners that want to explore the roots of the Bakersfield sound. ~ Thom Owens, All Music Guide

If you like real country music (i.e. Bakersfield country music) you'll love this. Tommy Collins was a huge influence on Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and Red Simpson. Buck played lead guitar on a lot of this material. Check this out!

AWESOME! Finally all the great hits of a wonderful singer/songwriter in one collection. Actually, not ALL. This is a GREAT collection, but I'm very disappointed that a box set containing this many great works by an artist, has left out one of his greatest novelty records, "Opal, You Asked Me." I mean, if we're going to have all of this man's great hits in a box set, let's have ALL his hits, especially in a box set this size. I mean, it's not one of those dinky two or three disc sets that only showcases his very best works. This has 5 discs with literaly all his songs. With such a big collection, why would you leave out ANY of his hits? Nonetheless, a GREAT collection, just a letdown that all his works didn't get included.

Another great box set from the folks at Bear Family Records. This one covers the career of the Great Tommy Collins. Known moreso for his novelty songs, Tommy Collins had one of the most distinct voices in country music. Often credited with helping to originate the Bakersfield Sound, Tommy's music and vocal stylings could best be compared with an early Wynnn Stewart. There are 5 Discs in this box set, and each is filled (30 songs) with some of the best music you will hear. The recordings are all original, in fact, the first few selections from disc 1 contain all of the "fuzz" and "echo" of early recordings; but with that said, Bear Records cleaned-up the sound as best as possible without interfering with the actual recordings. As with all Bear family releases, a huge book is included with the 5 discs, detailing the bio and discography of the great Tommy Collins. A superb box set, well worth the money.

By Frank Diegmann on September 14, 2013

Tommy Collins is very under-rated in country music. Known mostly for his "corny" songs, his ballads are second to none. He is similar to Jimmy Dickens who is also known for humorous songs, but whose ballads are some of the best in country music. I highly recommend both artists, and nobody does it better than Bear Family Records. Frank Diegmann
