Personnel: Earl Bostic (alto saxophone); Roy Acuff (vocals).
Liner Note Author: Chuck Young.
Roy Acuff was called The King Of Country Music back when such honorifics actually meant something. The rural Tennessee native was both an influential singer and a standout fiddle player, and both of these qualities are emphasized throughout this 20-track set. Opening with his first recorded song, 1938's "Great Speckled Bird," and continuing on through 19 more classic country and gospel songs--from "Wabash Cannonball" to "If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again"--this is bedrock country music. No line dances, no choirs, no orchestras, just a bunch of good ol' boys and their music. Traditional country doesn't get any better than this.
