A basic 20-track primer to some of the Western swing master's best sides. Acknowledged classics like "Steel Guitar Rag," "Take Me Back to Tulsa," and "Stay a Little Longer" are all here, with the players and arrangements that made Wills and his Texas Playboys legends in country music.
The best ever?
Yep, they are.
A Unique Brand of American Music!
Yes, the recording quality cannot be great, due to the time frame of these recordings. With that said, this music will grow on you if you give it a chance. Big Band Meets Country & Western. Just amazing music, especially the instrumentals. Once you get used to Mr. Wills' intermingling on most all songs - like "Awww Hawww" multiple times, you actually love it! Great music - and as Mr. Jennings wrote and sang "Bob Wills is still the king". Highly recommended!
