Porter Wagoner's public persona was pretty darn goofy through much of his career – at this point he may be better remembered by boomers for his loud, rhinestone-studded costumes he wore on his long running television show. But all the shtick in the world can't bury a good song – just ask a Buck Owens fan – and Porter's gleaming countrypolitan gems hold up quite nicely. As with the other RCA Country Legends titles the package includes excellent liner notes and photos – and provides a great, sort of second layer of depth for folks looking for strong stuff and who started their new interest in classic country with Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, or Patsy Cline
. If you've perused our Now Sound section over the years and might like a little twang in your 60s pop, you could do a lot worse than Porter! 16 tracks including "Company's Comin'", "A Satisfied Mind", "A Good Time Was Had By All", "Midnight", "Misery Loves Company", "Cold Dark Waters", "Legend Of The Big Steeple", the eternally great "Green, Green Grass Of Home", "Everything She Touches Gets The Blues", "Howdy Neighbor Howdy" and "The Life Of The Party".
