Like his East Texas contemporary George Jones (with whom he often shared a stage), Benny Barnes resisted the impulse to succumb to rock & roll when the style threatened to eclipse country in the late 1950s. Though Barnes might be better remembered had he let it rip now and again, that doesn't diminish the quality of his recorded output, which is represented on the thoughtfully compiled retrospective POOR MAN'S RICHES: THE COMPLETE 1950s RECORDINGS. The set brings together his early demos, and all the essential singles from Starday, Dixie, Mercury, and other labels, giving this overlooked country artist his proper due.
