Album Review

This is a highly recommended two-disc set featuring the best of early country music legends at a budget price. Among the highlights from these 52 selections are Jimmie Rodgers' "T for Texas," Hank Williams' "Move It on Over," Ernest Tubb's "Walkin the Floor Over You," and Eddy Arnold's "Cattle Call." A number of these artists are represented by more than one track, encapsulating their best material that should satisfy collectors and casual country fans alike.
Al Campbell, Rovi
