Never been a big country fan, but this man was so much more and getting close to his beginnings through a collection of early recordings feels just right. This was his third LP for Sun issued a year after he left the label for Columbia. A compilation mostly consisting of picks from a bulk of earlier unreleased sessions. Usually when labels issue leftover tracks the quality don't match the first approved ones, but to me those here sounds exactly like the early hits - same licks, same expression and same blend of country, boogie and rock. All mono recordings carried by fine audio with nice atmosphere. Good listening - simple and sincere with lots of presence. 1959 issues in US and Canada only. Don't know what year this copy is from, but guess it's early with ridged label as shown here, thick vinyl and stiff laminated cover. (SYSÖ*) (YZÄ*) (ÖXCÅ*)
