CD Reviews

Some of Country's Best--Excellent Compilation!
Thomas A. Holmes | Johnson City, TN USA | 09/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Time-Life Music people set out to offer some of the more representative hits of country music from 1950-1964, and this sixty-song, four-CD set should satisfy anyone who loves classic country. To their credit, Time-Life has also gotten the rights to present songs from a variety of record labels, so the sampling offers a more accurate review of the era. You'll find Patsy Cline, George Jones, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Kitty Wells, Marty Robbins, Jim Reeves, Lefty Frizzell, Ferlin Huskey, Roger Miller, Brenda Lee, Ray Price, Conway Twitty, and a host of others here. Sets like this one make me yearn for a multi-cd player, just for creating the atmosphere of a long-ago honky-tonk. The song selection demonstrates an interest and understanding of country music that a single-label retrospective cannot, and the recordings' remastering makes the sound as crisp and fresh as can be. I recommend this set highly."
Great mix of hits

"I bought this collection to use for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary party. They were married in 1955. The collection had a LOT of their favorite old country hits. The guests loved hearing the old tunes and it's made a great gift for my parents!"
