The Country Music Association of Australian and EMI Music have enjoyed a long and prestigious relationship for close to 20 years, with the annual release of the "Winners" compilation, collecting together the finalists from the Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards every year. Now comes this stunning double CD collection of timeless favourites from the superstars of the local country music scene, featuring Lee Kernaghan, Slim Dusty, Adam Brand, Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, James Blundell, Kasey Chambers, Troy Cassar-Daley, Gina Jeffreys, John Williamson and many more.
Cutting away all of Marty Robbins' rock & roll, Hawaiian and cowboy recordings, Bear Family's four-disc box set, Country 1960-1966, contains nothing but his straight country and country-pop recordings of the early '60s. During that era, Robbins was one of the most popular performers in country music, scoring an impressive series of Top 10 hits and pop crossovers like Don't Worry and Devil Woman, which are all included on this set.
There's astonishing versatility here: hillbilly string band music, folk, rockabilly, Hawaiian, and western music. Marty Robbins stamped his own identity on it all. Here are the great early hits: I'll Go On Alone, That's All Right, Mean Mama Blues, Maybelline, Tennessee Toddy, Mister Teardrop, Singing The Blues, Knee Deep In The Blues, and I Can't Quit. There's also the complete vocal-guitar session of folk songs and traditional songs, the first Hawaiian LP, the rock 'n' roll sides, and the duets. Essential! The fifth CD is a complete session, all the false starts and alternate takes.
Light in the Attic's 2016 compilation Hillbillies in Hell: Country Music's Tortured Testament (1952-1974) digs deep into odd, forgotten recesses of country music, discovering independently pressed laments about dope and the devil. Two of the names will be familiar to country fans – Margie Singleton, with her inspirational anthem "Jesus Is My Pusher," and Cowboy Copas, who warns "Don't Shake Hands with the Devil" – but most of the featured 18 tracks echo other better-known country singers, usually Johnny Cash.
Live! Fillmore West 1969 is a live album taken from Fillmore West performances on January 9, 10 and 11, 1969.

We are a rough and tumble Americana, Country, Southern Rock band based in California. We grew tired of the music in our state being lost in the Nashville/Austin feud. If you are looking for something completely new, you found us! Think of it like this, California wines compete with the best in the world, right?. Well, So will California Country, the Jacki Stone way.
