Gold Star was one of the regional labels that sprung up right after World War II -- based in Houston, Texas, it featured not only local country music, but Blues, Polka , Tex-Mex and Cajun music as well. This 28-song anthology has one or two cuts each by mostly obscure regional country artists. Some may recognize a few of the names such as Eddie Noack, Hank Locklin, Aubrey Gass and of course the well-known Cajun fiddler & singer Harry Choates. There's also a rare surprise track by Ray & Ina Patterson (SUNNY SIDE OF LIFE), a fine husband & wife duet in the Blue Sky Boys style who later recorded 3 wonderful LPs for the County label. Though there are no real gems here (apart from the Ray & Ina and Harry Choates cuts), the album is a good survey of typical country sounds from the Southwest in the late 1940s, and the notes by Phillip Tricker give some good background to the artists & tunes. $ 15.00
