Performer Notes
  • This two-disc set is probably misnamed since you won't find any Carter Family or Jimmie Rodgers here, two acts that belong on any roots of country collection, but you will find instead 30 tracks of what is now called the golden age of country music, before Strats and Telecasters, tight jeans and sexy videos completely ruled the Nashville roost. While there are plenty of big country hits here, listeners should be aware that several of them, like Glen Campbell's "Gentle on My Mind," are actually live versions and not the original radio singles, which is mildly disconcerting. Among the less likely encountered gems here are Ferlin Husky's "Phantom 309," Tex Ritter's "Boll Weevill," and Waylon Jennings' beautiful and atmospheric version of Roy Orbison's "Dream Baby." ~ Steve Leggett
