Known as "Whispering Bill" for his gentle, soft, and airy singing style, country singer Bill Anderson had his share of hits between the 1950s and late '70s, guided by his remarkable songwriting, which was really always his bread and butter, and his ability to write and work in all manner of country and folk styles through some six decades has made him one of country music's most successful songwriters. This beautiful set -- four discs plus a hardcover book -- from Bear Family Records is a lovingly and carefully assembled summation of Anderson's first decade in music, covering 1956 through 1966, and containing his first eight albums for Decca Records, five duets with Jan Howard, a dozen home demos of Anderson songs, as well as several non-LP B-sides and other rarities, including his early TNT singles, all of it adding up to an in-depth portrait of Anderson during his most commercially successful years. ~ Steve Leggett
