Stonewall Jackson is the epitome of hard drivin’, pure honky tonk. Feisty, heartfelt and down-home tunes delivered from behind a plow or the bottom of a beer glass. From the late 1950s through the 1960s Stonewall cut a vast catalogue of fine music and many of the greatest and rarest of these cuts are presented here for the very first time on this 30 track CD. Tracks include tales of the good gone wrong (I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water), autocide (Drinking And Driving) and suicide (The Water’s So Cold). Things are sometimes bleak (There’s No Reason To Be Living) but never without hope or redemption (I’ve Got To Change) though one might be a prisoner (Thirty Links Of Chain) or buried alive in a coal mine (While The Daises Grow Free).
