But no doubt, this collection is great and probably a good start for serious lovers of traditional honky tonk and ballad Country to get a little deeper into this music.
No wonder that George Jones names him as his faborite singer, Steel Guitar legend Lloyd Green (who actually played on all those records!) calls him "Greatest Honky Tonk Singer of all Times"! Find out yourself!
This is a budget line release with no info at all. No song or artist info is included. Plus I don't really like the inclusion of stuff like "Bad Leroy Brown" when I know there are better songs somewhere in the vault.
But for what it is worth, all these songs are original recordings, and the sound is acceptable.
But like I said, one of these days, there will be a deninate collection released, lets just pray it is soon.
