Very good re-mix of classic Bill Black songs. I remember listening to these on an old record player as a kid. The sound on the CD is great. I also like the break from vocals and enjoy the fact that it's all instrumental. The greatest hits portion is what you would expect, with that bluesy, jazzy, heavy bass feel. The western portion just seems out of place because it's definitely western! Not being a big fan of western music I wouldn't have bought just the western songs. However, I would have bought the greatest hits anyway, so if you like western music, you get a bonus. Even if you don't, the rest of it is well worth the price.

Bill Black, born in Memphis on September 17, 1926 started out as an upright bass fiddle player, mainly doing session work, often with guitarist Scotty Moore. Around 1952, the two became members of Doug Poindexter's The Starlight Wranglers, and in 1954, Sam Phillips brought Black and Moore into his studios to work with a young singer named Elvis Presley. And the rest, as they, is history, as they were part of The King's back-up group in his performances and recordings into 1958, when both departed over salary issues. In addition, Elvis' manager Colonel Tom Parker didn't like Bill's renowned clowning on stage, telling him flat out at one time to cut it out because he was upstaging the star.

In 1959, Bill formed his own instrumental band, Bill Black's Combo, with guitarist Reggie Young, saxophonist Martin Wills, pianist Joe Lewis Hall, and drummer Jerry Arnold. Over the years, there would be personnel changes including each of guitarists Chips Moman, Hank Hankins and Tommy Cogbill filling in for Young after he was drafted, Wills made way for the great Ace Cannon on sax, and at times in the recording studio it was Carl McVoy pounding the keyboards instead of Hall, and on the road, pianist Bobby Emmons.

After securing a contract with Hi Records, launched in 1957 in Memphis by Joe Cuoghi, Ray Harris, Quinton Claunch and Bill Cantrell (who had each done production work at Sun Records), he and his band would go on to register 19 Billboard Pop Hot 100 single hits to 1968, five of which would cross over to the R&B charts, and would add six more to the Country charts between 1975 and 1978, the last seven in total after Bill's untimely death from a brain tumor at age 39 on October 21, 1965.

I have had a 33 record of this since I was 12. If you are down this music will pick you up. Don't miss out on some great music. Very "peppy" but not rock. Good music to have in the back ground when having a social affair.

Been trying to find Bill Black combo in the stores for years, but it just can't be found on the shelves any more. Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my father-in-law. HE LOVED IT! The DVD contains fun songs that take you back to the roller-skating rink days when times were slower and life was easier. A joy to listen to!
