Country Music Hall of Fame contains a good cross-section from Red Foley's heyday in the late '40s and early '50s. All of the selections of this 16-track, single-disc compilation were recorded for Decca Records. While not all of his hits are present — even some of his biggest singles, including "Smoke on Your Water," are missing — most of the essential items ("Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy," "Tennessee Saturday Night," "Peace in the Valley") are here, making it an essential introduction to one of country's biggest stars.
Decent collection...not great
I didn't know much about Red Foley before getting this disc. What i have learned is that his mid-late 40's recordings are FAR better than his 50's recordings. The earlier hits on this disc represent very tasteful country swing, with expert guitar swinging. The second half of the tunes are from the 50's, and more of them are a little on the goofy, novelty side, along with some duets and gospel numbers. Unfortunately, as of this writing, this is the ONLY legal disc on the market of Red Foley's music. So for THAT reason, i guess get it.
How do we forget these guys!
