Editorial Reviews

From the time that Ford first stepped into Capitol's recording studio in 1949, until he left the label in '76, he recorded everything from swinging hillbilly boogies to American saga songs, pop standards and country favorites. This 20-track collection, focusing on his early days in the studio, assembles some of his biggest hits, but also a number of rarities and songs never reissued in the U.S. Highlights: "Smokey Mountain Boogie," "I'll Never Be Free" (with Kay Starr), "Hey, Good Lookin'" (with Helen O'Connell), "Sixteen Tons" and more.

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.

I got this because I read that Tennessee Ernie Ford, sold 90 million records, are you kidding me,, That blows Taylor Swift out of the water, any way most of it was way to dated for me, But did have a few country songs that were ok , A cheap way to check him out, maybe a good CD for your grandfather. Sixteen Tons is always great, and he did it the best, also Mule Train, both songs have been cover by lots of other singers.

I was born in the fifties and remember hearing Ernie many times during my childhood. Ernie was one of my Dad's favorites. Listening to this CD brings back many great memories from my childhood. When Sixteen Tons first came out I remember hearing all the time on the radio. I also like the song First Born on this album.

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.

I grew up listening to Tennnessee Ernie Ford. He as one of my Dad's favorite. Besides Elvis, he was one of the first people I remember listening to on the Louisiana Hayride. This CD has most of his earlier songs and of coarse, his most popular. If you are a Ford fan, you will love him. Of coarse, my sixteen year old grandson, said who is he?

I remember listening to Tennessee Ernie Ford when I was a child and still enjoy watching him on guest spots on various TV shows. I decided to get this CD and I love it. He has some great western swing and I cannot stop dancing to his music.
