CD Reviews

Very essential, but get rid of the fake stereo!
Ronald George Reagan | Steele, MO | 08/07/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone wanting a good cross-section of Acuff's early hits (before all of the re-records), this is a must. These are truly his greatest hits. There are certainly a few tracks missing that could've made the cut, but the emphasis being this is an intro to the work of Acuff. Roy bridged the gap that was between Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams. He tied together the hillbilly music of old with a pop music sensibility that was just ripe for a national audience. Is it any wonder that so many early country stars found their influence here? Acuff was only bested by Hank Williams (who himself was a disciple of Acuff). The reason this gets 3 stars is for the fake stereo that was added to these selections in the mid-60's (same masters are being used from some of the Harmony LP's such as "Waiting For My Call To Glory"). I thought we were well past the days of faking stereo, but even in that format, these takes are essential listening."
