Synopsis

Amazon.com
There's nobody quite like the affable Texan Don Walser. His stellar yodeling alone has led critics to call him the "Pavarotti of the Plains" (Playboy) and "the greatest country singer in the world" (the Austin Chronicle). Walser honed his honky-tonk street cred during decades of playing Texas dance halls before he retired from his day job with the National Guard and promptly cut his well-received major label debut, Rolling Stone from Texas (1994). The Archive Series plucks two volumes' worth of material from earlier, mostly local releases. On such classic numbers as "Cattle Call," "Take Me Back to Tulsa," and "Long Black Veil," Walser shows his deep roots in old-time Western swing, with influences ranging from Lefty Frizzell and Webb Pierce to Ernest Tubb and Bob Wills.

Don Walser

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like country music and have not heard of Don Walser then you are in for a treat. This CD is the best of Don Walser. Many of his more recent CDs do not include much yoedling, this CD does. If you like old time country western yoedling this is a prime disc. Even my 83 year old Father who grew up with will the classic country western singers sayes Don is one of the best, and this is the best of Don Walser."
