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.

Some Of My Favorites
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good-
Duck-tail quaffed troubadour Ferlin Husky recorded dozens of records in the late 50s and throughout the 60s for Capitol, and never really found the audience on his own that his early hits with the beautiful Jean Shepard enjoyed. Still, a good chunk of those records, including this smooth batch of ... LP, Vinyl record album
