5.0 out of 5 stars Great from beginning to end! November 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I always loved "Sixteen Tons", but I never knew any of Tennessee Ernie Ford's other songs. This collection, which is in chronological order, was terrific from beginnning to end, with lots of singable songs and excellent recording quality. Some of my favorites were "Milk 'em in the Morning Blues", "Country Junction", "I'll Never Be Free", "Hey Mr. Cotton-Picker" and, of course, "Sixteen Tons", but most of the other songs are very good, also. This CD is also a great value -- lots of songs for the price.

For this release I can't be my hyper-critical self when it comes to the lack of his hit singles, simply because it doesn't advertise itself as such. Still, while there is a preponderance of Tennessee Ernie compilations dealing with a genre - religious hymns - for which he is also fondly remembered, he did put 37 hits onto the Billboard Country and/or Pop charts from 1949 to 1959, all for Capitol Records.

But just try and find a definitive "Greatest Hits Of" or "Best Of" for this genial balladeer, inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1990, a year before his death at age 72 on October 17, 1991. And that's a crime really.

Here they manage to give us 10 of those hits plus two uncharted B-sides, although one of the latter, I Got The Milk 'Em In The Morning Blues, backed his first hit ever, Tennessee Border, in April 1949 (# 8 on what then passed for the Country charts) on Capitol 15400, and that breakthrough hit is not here.

The hits they do provide are: Country Junction - # 14 Country in May 1949 on Capitol 15430; Smokey Mountain Boogie - # 8 Country in September 1949 on Capitol 40212; Mule Train - # 1 Country for 4 weeks and # 9 Pop in late 1949 on Capitol 40258, and its B-side, Anticipation Blues, which also charted at # 3 Country; The Cry Of The Wild Goose - # 2 Country and # 15 Pop in early 1950 on Capitol F1124; I'll Never Be Free - a duet with Kay Starr which hit # 2 Country and # 3 Pop in the fall of 1950 on Capitol F1124; The Shot-Gun Boogie - # 1 Country for 14 solid weeks and # 14 Pop in late 1950/early 1951 on Capitol F1295 (it's uncharted flipside, I Ain't Gonna Let It Happen No More, is also here); Hey Mr.

If you like classic country then TEF is a must have. A few songs are a bit corney but who cares. Highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great birthday gift for Dad June 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this for my Dad, but I was tempted to keep it for myself. I love Tennessee Ernie Ford's style and that smoooooth voice. I could listen to him over and over again. In fact, I'll probably end up getting it for myself at some point. For now, I keep playing it whenever I'm at my friend's house. His "Fifteen Tons" is classic!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD did not have the songs that I really wanted. My fault, I guess. There are a couple I like so I guess it was worth it.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A truly outstanding collection of Tennessee Ernie's work. I enjoyed all the songs and even found a couple I was unfamiliar with. I especially liked Shotgun Boogie and Hicktown. Highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys classic country.

Good music to listen to for senior clients. However, this is a bit too slow and boring. Was hoping there would be more upbeat and lively songs on the track.
