Product Description

This long overdue compilation beautifully documents the complete Columbia recordings of a group that perhaps more than any other embodies the essence of pure country music in the immediate post-war period. Great songwriters, Walter, Johnnie, Kyle & Homer Bailes had a large supply of well-written songs that they presented in an achingly soulful style with the simple yet rich and appropriate accompaniment of fiddle, guitar, mandolin, steel guitar and acoustic bass. At the time of these recordings they were established Opry stars and had it not been for some personal scandals (which led to a quick and quiet exit from WSM) they very likely would have become one of the most popular acts in country music’s history. The 28 songs here (4 of them never issued previously in any form) are accompanied by a wonderful set of notes by Eddie Stubbs in a neat 36-page booklet that includes discography. The usual top-notch Bear Family sound quality and production enhances this superb and important release, highly recommended. AS LONG AS I LIVE, DOWN WHERE THE RIVER BENDS, OH SO MANY YEARS, DUST ON THE BIBLE, REMEMBER ME, DRUNKARD’S GRAVE, etc.
