50 Years of Hits CDs (2004) Top Seller
Very Best of Ernest Tubb songs Even the title of the three-disc George Jones collection 50 YEARS OF HITS should be enough to tell you that the man being anthologized is one of the all-time giants of country music. A towering influence on all that followed him, not only in country but in rock and pop as well, Jones started out in the 1950s as a Hank Williams-influenced honky-tonk man who wasn't afraid of a little rockabilly either (the Hank influence is clearly audible on such early tracks as "Just One More"). By the '60s, he'd refined his approach, taking a bit from the jazz-inflected style of Lefty Frizzell and becoming a striking balladeer. "She Thinks I Still Care" and "Color of the Blues" stand as templates for how to sing a country ballad.
For most performers, that would have been enough, but Jones never stopped turning out heart-stopping performances. This is underscored by the presence of the mid-period mind-blower "He Stopped Loving Her Today," which reaches a superhuman level of pathos, and latter-day tracks such as the unstintingly bleak "The Cold Hard Truth," as well as the high-spirited, good-humored "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)." In case future generations want to know what country music was all about back in the 20th century, there should be a copy of 50 YEARS OF HITS placed in a time capsule.
Personnel: George Jones (vocals, guitar); Melba Montgomery (vocals); Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Merle Haggard, Randy Travis, Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings.

Essential Marty Robbins CDs (2005) Top Seller
Very Best of Ernest Tubb CD music Columbia/Legacy's THE ESSENTIAL MARTY ROBBINS surveys the crooner's '50s/'60s heyday, including the aforementioned song and his beloved forays into gritty Western territory, most notably the runaway hit "El Paso," a classic gun-slinging tale of ill-fated romance, and "Big Iron," a suspenseful recounting of an impending showdown. The collection follows Robbins through the '70s and into the early '80s, his smooth, clear vocals always at the fore. Although it shares many tracks with the similarly titled THE ESSENTIAL MARTY ROBBINS: 1951-1982, this two-disc compilation focuses more on Robbins's later years (including his posthumous hit--the lush, sweeping "Honkytonk Man"). Those looking for the most even-handed overview of Robbins's career will find it here.
One of the most versatile artists in country-music history, Marty Robbins covered a wide range of styles over his three decades of recording. Robbins's earliest 1950s singles veered from pop to rockabilly to straight-up country, building up momentum that truly kicked in with 1957's breezy "A White Sport Coat (And a Pink Carnation)." This country/pop crossover hit marked one of Robbins's first outings with arranger Ray Conniff, a collaboration that would yield numerous successful singles.
Personnel: Marty Robbins (vocals, piano); Jimmy Rollins, Tony Mottola (guitar); Johnny Gimble (fiddle); Dick Hyman, Floyd Cramer, Owen Bradley, Hargus "Pig" Robbins (piano); Jerry Byrd (bass guitar).
Ultimate Dolly Parton CD (2003) Top Seller
Very Best of Ernest Tubb buy CD music Though various record labels have released several dozen Dolly Parton greatest-hits and "best of" compilations over the years, few have attempted to effectively encapsulate the artist's enviably long and incredibly varied career in a single disc. THE ULTIMATE DOLLY PARTON goes a long way towards filling this void by collecting choice cuts from nearly every era and musical phase of Dolly's tenure. Beginning with stone-cold country classics like "Coat Of Many Colors" and "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" and proceeding through crossover smashes such as "9 To 5" and "Islands In The Stream," the collection will give the uninitiated more than enough prime Parton to dispel any inkling that the singer is all flash. On the contrary, her uncanny pop sensibility, heartstring-pulling, warbling soprano, and emotional directness are apparent in every single note on this disc, and anyone curious about why Dolly Parton is a cultural icon of the highest order would do well to start here.
2003 issued digitally remastered anthology of the Country music queen's best recordings drawn from her recordings on several different labels, giving you one of the most complete overviews of this great singer/songwriter's legendary career.

Anthology CDs (2003)
Very Best of Ernest Tubb album for sale Recorded between 1950 & 1981. Includes liner notes by Mary Katherine Aldin.
So much has been said about the founding father of bluegrass music that it would be nice if there was an all-encompassing collection of Bill Monroe's music to accompany the legend. Although the almost-correctly titled Anthology comes close, there is still a wealth of Columbia and RCA-Victor recordings missing from this Decca-centric collection, which runs chronologically from 1950 to 1969 (with one final track from 1981). Unfortunately, this means that the classic lineup of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, with fiddler Chubby Wise and bassist Howard Watts, is not represented. Still, bluegrass luminaries Vassar Clements, Jimmy Martin, Kenny Baker, Del McCoury, Peter Rowan, and many others, all drifted in and out of the Blue Grass Boys during their twenty-some years, and make appearances on classic tracks like "Sally Goodin," "Uncle Pen," "Blue Moon of Kentucky," and "New Mule Skinner Blues." All told, this may be the perfect collection of Monroe's work for Decca, but it falls only slightly short of being the Bill Monroe Anthology. ~ Zac Johnson

Essential CDs (2007) Top Seller
Very Best of Ernest Tubb CD music This double-CD best-of displays the Texas singer Ray Price at his early best. By the mid-1960s, Price had radically altered his approach, adopting a countrypolitan ballad style of singing, and leaving behind his honky-tonk roots, including his nasal, Hank Williams-influenced vocal style. However, THE ESSENTIAL RAY PRICE presents the country legend in his exciting honky-tonk years, making the music that would later be embraced so widely by country music's 1980s New Traditionalists. Backed by Hank Williams's Drifting Cowboys, Price excels on classics such as "The Road of No Return," "Heartaches By the Number," and "Talk to Your Heart." Though Williams's influence is evident throughout, cuts such as "The Same Old Me" show the beginnings of Price's unique, innovative style.
Personnel: Ray Price (guitar); Clay Allen, Lefty Perkins, Donny "Johnny Paycheck" Lytle, Art Bishop, Darrell McCall, Spider Wilson, Grady Martin, Hank Cochran, Jerry Kennedy, Jody Payne, Leon Rhodes, Pete Wade, Ray Edenton, Rusty Gabbard, Tommy Williams , Ray Sanders, Buddy Griffin (guitar); Chet Atkins, Samuel K.
