Older Country music fans will remember June Carter as a very talented country comedienne with a ton of personality, a key member of a great musical family, wife to Johnny Cash, and an all round great person. As a soloist, she was not a very good singer, at least in the pre-Johnny Cash years, though there was nothing wrong with her harmonies on the few records she made with Mother Maybelle and her sisters Helen and Anita. But unfortunately her record companies (mainly Victor and Columbia) fed her a steady stream of inferior songs—some of the worst novelty garbage that you’ll ever hear on record. Anyone who ever wanted to put down or belittle country music as “hillbilly trash” could use just about any of the 27 cuts here to make his point. Even Chet Atkins and Homer & Jethro were not able to salvage any of the 3rd rate rubbish like KNOCK KNEED SUZY, CROCODILE TEARS, YOU FLOPPED WHEN YOU GOT ME, BASHFUL RASCAL, FOR CRYIN’ OUT LOUD and THE HUCKLE BUCK. This CD will do nothing good for the memory of a great family.
