Essentially this same CD appeared about 10 years ago in a very limited import edition, but now, happily, it has been re-issued on Bear Family, which means it should be around for a while. It contains all 26 tracks cut for COZY (4) and RCA VICTOR (22) from 1950-1954, with excellent notes by Gary Reid. The earliest cuts feature a very young Bobby Osborne & Larry Richardson while the VICTOR sides include Curly & Charlie Cline, Melvin & Ray Goins and Paul Williams (along with a few other sidemen like Rex Parker and James Roberts on mandolin.) Some of the finest tracks are MY BROWN EYED DARLING, I’M LEFT ALONE, 21 YEARS, DIRTY DISHES BLUES and the classic WINDY MOUNTAIN (a song learned from Hobo Jack Adkins). While everything about this album is first rate, there is a very un-BEAR FAMILY-like 3-page filler at the end of the notes. This curious feature combines something of a sob-story chastising of the buyer for not buying more Bluegrass (entitled “O Brother, Where Were You” ), with 2 pages plugging the company’s other Bluegrass CD’s and Box Sets. Strange! BABY YOU’RE CHEATIN, YOU LEFT ME TO CRY, NO CURB SERVICE, HONKY TONK BLUES, DON’T FORGET ME, PAIN IN MY HEART etc.
