Product Description:

Recording information: 04/04/1952-01/22/1964.
One of country music's all-time greatest vocalists, Lefty Frizzell combined the smooth phrasing of commercial pop with the gritty roots of honky-tonk. Interestingly, this two-for-one disc, which brings together a pair of Frizell's best mid-'60s albums--splits the difference down the middle. COUNTRY FAVORITES has a decidedly rootsy feel, with plenty of twang and bite on offer with its Bob Wills's cover ("A King Without a Queen") and Frizzell's own saloon-tailored originals ("Run 'Em Off," "My Baby's Just Like Money"). Laid-back rhythms and fine lead guitar work help classify this set with the best of classic honky-tonk.
The lush Nashville production of SAGINAW, MICHIGAN, on the other hand, emphasizes Frizzell's more commercial side. The strings arrangements and back-up singers complement Frizzell's deep crooning voice, sanding down the rough edges of the vocalist's more down-home dates. There are some excellent examples of the story-song--one of Frizzell's fortes--in the title track (a huge hit for the artist), the hard-times document "There's No Food in This House," and the twist-of-fate tale ""Hello to Him (Goodbye to Me)." Whether rootsy or slickly produced, however, Frizzell's choice of material is always satisfying, and his mellifluous voice either lulls or thrills on every track.
