Hawww yeah! Folks you really can't beat this one – 16 indispensable numbers from Bob Wills
and His Texas Playboys, with excellent notes and pristine sound quality (unlike sets with earlier material) – for the price of a latte. A true pioneer, Wills
' taste ran from Jimmie Rodgers to Tommy Dorsey – and he combined those and other seemingly disparate influences to create Western swing. You don't need to be a country nugget hunter to appreciate the sweetness here – Bob
's for anyone who loves a great swinging ballad regardless of genre! The set pulls singles Bob
and the boys recorded from the early 50s through the mid 60s – when the group was a ballroom circuit touring phenomenon and as tight as any band in the land. Vocalists include Jack Loyd, Lee Ross, Luke Wills
and others – the great buttery-voiced Tommy Duncan was missing during these years, but heck – with tunes this great Tiny Tim could've sang and it would still be amazing! Tracks include "Cornball Rag", "San Antonio Rose", "Don't Keep It A Secret", "Hoopaw Rag", ""My Shoes Keep Walking Back To You", "So Let's Rock", "Little Star Of Heaven", "It's The Bottle Talkin", "Lilly Dale", "With Tears In My Eyes", "A Big Ball In Cowtown", and "If You Walk Back To Me".
