The fifties begin with country treasures
(5 out of 5 stars)
"With names like Skeets and Kitty and Webb, Rex, Hank and Goldie we are talking good old country music. I remember these hits from Kentucky radio stations I listened to in the early fifties. My favorite is "Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes" by Skeets McDonald. It was written by Slim Willet. Another fast paced winner is "If You've Got The Money, I've Got The Time." by Lefty Frizzell. These songs weren't million sellers like the country superstars of today might take for granted, but they were treasured by those of us who listened to the radio at home and on the road. These records were sold mostly as 78 rpm discs. I used to put nickels in the jukebox to hear "Hey Joe" by Carl Smith. It was a 78 rpm jukebox. Just for the record there is one million seller here. It was done by an artist who had at least 3 million sellers before Frank Sinatra had one. Slim Whitman sings "Rose Marie" in his inimitable style with steel guitar accompaniment. Slim had million sellers in the early fifties. Frank Sinatra didn't have one until the sixties. But Frank never did sing country so he's not on this CD and it really doesn't matter. This stuff is all good. Tom Willett"
