Bawdy beer joint stompers, raucous and rumbling proto rock rhythms and perfectly produced numbers from the hillbilly branch of Columbia Records in the 50s! These tales of hard livin' (and drinkin'), heart breakin' and train hoppin' by forgotten hillbilly combos and crooners – plus a handful of legends treasured to this day – will sound terrific until the end of time, thanks to the first wave freshness of the era's vintage – as well as the impeccable recording quality Columbia could provide. Great stuff from Rocky Porter, Rose Maddox (and The Maddox Brothers), Ray Price, Little Jimmy Dickins, "Freddie Hart, Jack Rhodes & His Lone Star Buddies, Bobby Lord and more. A whoppin' 32 tracks in all: "The World Is A Monster" by Rocky Porter, "All I Can Do Is Cry" by Johnny Bond
, "No Parking Here" by Jimmy Littleton, "Buddy's Boogie" by The Country Boys, "When The Sun Goes Down" by Rose Maddox, "Red Hot Mama And An Ice Cold Beer" by Smiley Maxedon, "Me And My Big Loud Mouth" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Much Too Young To Die" by Ray Price and many more.
