Editorial Reviews

Here's the story. For many years, we'd received requests to do a truly definitive country series, but it wasn't until the success of our year-by-year R&B/Soul series, Blowin' The Fuse (now Sweet Soul Music and soon to be continued into the Funk era) that we decided we needed to do something comparable for country music. The first volumes of Dim Lights, Thick Smoke And Hillbilly Music took us from 1945-1955, and now the story continues into the era of the Nashville Sound.

The series has been compiled with today's fans in mind. Sure, the big hits are there, but so are the classic performances that weren't necessarily hits at the time, but became influential in the years ahead. Every volume has incredibly detailed behind-the-scenes stories, fabulously rare photos, and an ongoing history of country music set against the backdrop of the broader American music business. The booklets alone are 72 pages! Definitive? You bet!

Superlatives are often overused, but we feel that this series is part of our mission to bring this incredible music to new fans... as well as entertaining older fans. We pick up the story in 1956... just as country music was coming to terms with the upset of rock 'n' roll!
