Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
More roots country than rockabilly, but still good

"Like all of the Buffalo Bop rockabilly compilations, this one is taken directly from rare 45's from the late 50's and mastered onto CD. In spite of this process, the sound quality is very good on most tracks.
Listening to this CD you'll realize why some of these guys never hit it big...they just didn't have the talent. Others might make you think why didn't they make a name for themselves. Most of the tracks are along the lines of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams rather than rockabilly artists like early Elvis and Carl Perkins. You'll hear steel guitar solos and fiddles on several tracks (as well as hot, and not so hot, guitar solos). If you're more into straight-up rockabilly, you might want to look at some of the other Buffalo Bop or Bear Family compilations. However, it's still a lot of fun to listen to if you're into roots country and early rockabilly."
