Synopsis

Amazon.com
This Texas honky-tonker possessed a charismatic, pared-down style that featured his deep, distinct Texas drawl, and a relaxed, deliberate, behind-the-beat delivery. Boiling his career down to 16 tracks is no easy task, but this single-CD collection offers an effective mix of hit records and noncommercial career highlights. 1941's "Walking the Floor Over You" made Tubb a star and remains a country standard. Drinking songs such as "Two Glasses, Joe" accompany tear-jerkers about lost love and topical songs about World War II soldiers' experiences both overseas and upon their return. Tubb's Texas Troubadours--especially guitarist Billy Byrd--provide simple but enormously effective support. Tubb's easy-going, loping style distinguishes him from most other honky-tonk stars. --Marc Greilsamer

This is country music.

"Ernest Tubb is a true country music singer. His songs have feeling and tell a story. That is what country music is supposed to be. The new country might be okay for some, but give me "Walkin The Floor Over You" or "Waltz Across Texas" any day. The simplicity of the music, the feeling in the vocals, the meaning to the lyrics, please let's put some Country in our Country. Take Us Back. To Those Honky Tonk Days!"
