A fresh slant on the king and originator of honky tonk music, a full CD of his up-tempo recordings, including era-defining hits like Walking The Floor Over You, You Nearly Lose Your Mind, and Drivin' Nails In My Coffin. The next best thing to a night at a Texas honky tonk circa 1950 minus the guns and cigarette smoke. These recordings ooze character and believability. Tubb's voice wavers off-key here and there, but the gritty realism and human warmth more than compensate. Ernest Tubb made records that could only be Ernest Tubb records. The contrast with the cookie-cutter similarity and artificial perfection of today's country music could not be more obvious. Includes a 32-page booklet.
