Country & Western CD2

What I found always interesting concerning low-budget comps was either the soundalike version or the many re-recordings of the hits by the original artists, which is the case here. None of these re-recordings reached the musical quality of the originals, but they're still good sometimes, although they lost much of their charm. But "That's the Way It Goes"... as Durwood Dailey would say. Listen to Billy Grammer's "Papa and Mama" and tell me what you think about that song.

2. Jim Croce - Workin' at the Car Wash Blues
3. Don Gibson - Lonesome Number One
4. Bobby Bare - Sylvia's Mother
5. Wanda Jackson - Crazy
6. John Denver - A Little Further North
7. George Kent - Hello, I'm a Jukebox
8. Linda Manning - If Only For a Moment
9. Kitty Wells - Password
10. George Kent - I Always Did Like Leavenworth
11. Ferlin Husky - I Could Sing All Night
12. Billy Grammer - Papa and Mama

Listening to Billy Grammer there made me go threw my old records and then I remembered recording the Opry in the late 60's out on the back step under the stars and hearing Billy sing and play fantastic guitar. I found some of those recordings and as the Opry faded in and out I could here the crickets and smell the worm damp air just like it was yesterday. Thanks I always realy liked Billy Grammer and his guitar. Floyd
