"Old time country boogie and the beginnings of country rock music are both still good as well as being nostalgic. The performers were at the top of their game and without the improved technology of today were still able to provide excellent sound and enthusiasm. Very listenable."

"This music compilation is totally worth it for the price. I'm a young guy that loves old school music. I really got into Western music through my passion for 50's Rockabilly. Now, I don't want anyone thinking Western Swing and Boogie to think it's like boring old country music. Western Boogie is rocking, fun, upbeat, and really makes you want to jump out of your seat and shake! This Hillbilly Boogie 4 disc compilation has 100 songs! 25 songs per disc with a 55 page booklet that gives insight to this era of music! Get this compilation before it is out of print! Definitely worth it!"
