One of the more mournful full lengths ever cut by honky tonk great Hank Snow – his When Tragedy Struck, cut for RCA Victor at the end of the 50s – and in the tradition of the best morose themed country music of the 50s or any other time, darkness never sounded so sweet and cathartic! Hank's best records always had the right mix of barn dance and elegance in the arrangements, and this is one of those. Great stuff! Includes "The Letter Edged In Black", "Old Shep", "The Prisoner's Prayer", "A Drunkard's Child", "Don't Make Me Go To Bed, I'll Be Good", "The Convict And The Rose", "Put My Little Shoes Away", "I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail" and more. (Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging, with some pen on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

RCA, 1969. Sealed
Possibly the best-known album from 60s folkie Bonnie Dobson – a singer/songwriter who had a subtle, but strong influence on the sound of her generation!
