✨✧ Willie NelsonNashville Was The Roughest – 1964 to 1972 (8CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 8CDs Book ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the great Willie Nelson – and a full collection of all the work that set him onto the path of his later outlaw years fame! The Nelson heard here is a man really finding himself – moving past some earlier roles as a songwriter for others, and some early forays with jazz – into a mode that's definitely country, but which has a heck of a lot more going on too – a wit and wisdom that's maybe even more compelling here, as Willie's still a clean-shaven guy without any cowboy image – and comes across in this philosophical way that's both a surprise for his cleaner-cut image, and the regular RCA country material of the time. The box is overflowing with greatness – 8CDs, and a huge amount of tracks that include all of Willie's RCA work of the period, plus sessions for Monument Records in 1964 – all bundled up with the usual sort of Bear Family booklet that offers a deep look at his career, along with notes on all the sessions too!

✨✧ Ray PriceHonky Tonk Years – Ray Price & The Cherokee Cowboys 1950 to 1966 (10CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CDs & Book ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful early work from the great Ray Price – cut at a time when he was a hell of a honky tonk hero, and almost single-handedly creating the style of late night, blue-tinged country tunes! The work here is almost all from Ray's killer 50s and early 60s years at Columbia Records – a time when the singer was using his amazing voice to front the Cherokee Cowboys – a group who, like Ray, may have had a western inclination in their fashion sense – but who worked mostly in a subtle twang that really helped redefine the music with a darker, modern current. The lavish box set features a stunning 80 page book – hardcover, oversized, and filled with rare photos and a complete discography, as well as a bio on Ray, and loads of album and record shots too. The 10 CDs feature music that begins with early Bullet Record material by Price – then a wealth of Columbia sides – 266 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Mac WisemanTis Sweet To Be Remembered – Complete Recordings – 1951 to 1964 (6CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 6CDs & Book ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music from the great Mac Wiseman – an artist who was as important to the growth of bluegrass in the 50s as Bill Monroe or the Stanley Brothers – but who doesn't always get his due! Mac's voice is amazing – wonderfully expressive, but in a slyly subtle way – and his range of material here is wonderful, and often surpasses most of the settings in which he worked! A good deal of tracks come from Wiseman's time at Dot Records – where he also acted as their country A&R person – and the set features loads of singles that have never been reissued from the Dot years – plus later Capitol Records tracks, including a full Capitol album that was never released! We've really fallen in love with Mac's music over the years – and this collection does him justice that no other package on the market has before – complete with 164 prime recordings on 6CDs, and a massive heavy book that's filled with images, photos, and rich writings on Wiseman's career by Charles Wolfe and Eddie Stubbs!
