Too many re-recordings for my taste

"That's right, this is a collection of mostly the 60's countrypolitan stereo remakes of the 1950's classics with a sprinkling of originals from the 1960's but the re-recordings are definitely enough to let you all know that this CD is not recommended and that I recommend the Legacy "Look What Thoughts Will Do" 2 CD set with only the originals. It may be a little higher priced but it delivers what it promises, the originals. The disc is rated 1 star for the heavy amount of re-recordings (many awful performances) and another star for the sprinkling of originals."
Some re-recordings, but a lot of lefty

"A 'Tee-Vee'recordings offering, this album includes a number of key early 60's 'countrypolitan' re-recordings of Frizell's early recordings, with a sprinkling of un-remastered originals as well. The re-recordings are a mix, with an obscene 'Always Late', preceded by an almost better than the original 'I Want to be With You Always'. A mixed bag, I'd recommend going for the higher priced re-mastered original recordings."
Lefty ALWAYS Right-on!

"Lefty Frizzell's "Golden 20" CD holds some of the best country music I've heard in years. I had forgotten just how good the man was and why he left such a big imprint on country music. You can still hear his influence, of course, in many of Merle Haggert's songs and even in some of Dwight Yoakam's stuff. Gotta say, however, only Merle gets close to being as good. If you want to hear some 1st Class Country, be you Merle Haggart or just a country-music-lovin'-bumpkin' like me, buy this CD! Pure 5-Star!"
