Charlie Adams may never have had a hit of any measure, but as a songwriter and effective singer, he left behind a small treasure-trove of quality Texas dancehall Western swing, country, and proto-rockabilly recordings on this excellent 30-track collection. Although Adams never considered himself a singer, he vocalizes effectively on tracks like "Black Land Blues," "Baby Let Me Kindle Your Flame," "You've Wounded the Heart," "I'm Drinking and Thinking Over You," and "Gloomy Sunday." Top-notch backing on all these sides (especially the later Columbia sessions that feature Adams' regular working band) is a big plus and Adams' story is told effectively by Kevin Coffey's excellent notes. Another artist lost to the times that Bear Family has rescued for future generations to enjoy. ~ Cub Koda
