Tennessee Ernie Ford's Greatest Hits contains ten of the country singer's well-known songs originally recorded for Capitol in the early to mid-'50s, including "Mule Train," "Shotgun Boogie," "The Ballad of Davy Crockett," and his biggest hit from 1955, "Sixteen Tons." The emphasis is on Cousin Ernie's country boogie tracks rather than the religious material he is also well known for. The casual listener will be pleased with the choice of material, but the collector who wants more should search the used bins for the unfortunately deleted Razor & Tie two-disc set The Ultimate Collection (1949-1965). ~ Al Campbell
