Johnny Horton?The Essential Honky Tonk Man Lives On!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"For those country music fans who are only familiar with Johnny Horton's historical saga songs, this two CD compilation truly demonstrates that he was an original and diverse artist. Horton really shines on the "honky tonk" tunes: "Honky Tonk Man" (most recently covered by Dwight Yoakam), "I'm a One Woman Man" (most recently covered by George Jones), "Goodbye Lonesome (Hello, Baby Doll)," "Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor," "Cherokee Boogie" (most recently covered by BR5-49 and Marty Brown), and "The Golden Rocket" (nice version that would please Hank Snow). Some interesting tunes worth checking out: "Hot in the Sugarcane Field," "Lost Highway" (good version of Hank Williams, Sr. classic), "Evil Hearted Me," and "I'll Do It Every Time" (almost Everly Brothers in feel). There is some filler on these CDs, but it's mostly listenable and enjoyable in its own way. There are two notable omissions on this compilation that would render his "Greatest Hits" package unnecessary for purchase (unless your really want some of the historical saga songs)--"Whispering Pines" and "All for the Love of a Girl." These are two of the best ballads (and songs!) that Horton ever recorded. Why are they missing here? Otherwise, this is a terrific collection."

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Although this CD left out some of my favorites, like "Jim Bridger," "Johnny Freedom," and "The Battle of Bull Run," it is a must have for any fan of Johnny Horton, or classic country in general. It provides many songs that aren't included on most of his other cd's, a bonus feature in this 2 CD set. It is definately a must have for any collection!"
Great 2 CD Collection

"Here is a fine collection of Johhny Horton songs; not only the more famous Historic numbers, but the equally good (or better, in my opinion) Honky Tonk numbers. I wish someone would release his entire catalog of early stuff; especially his signature, hard-driving, honky tonkin'! I do have one real criticism of this collection, and I am really perturbed that "Whispering Pines" and "All For the Love of A Girl" were not included here....it is criminal. If you are not familiar with Johnny's "drinkin" music, you owe it to yourself to hear the likes of "I'm Comin' Home" and "Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor"; both are included here, as well as many more. Forget Toby Keith, Faith & Tim Hill, or Kenny G Chesney.....here is a collection of fine country music that is worth every penny of the price."
