(Various Artists)Ê ThereÕs not much to recommend this 28 track sampling from the early post-war years.Ê ItÕs mostly just average, pedestrian country music, with your typical steel guitar and take-off guitar backing for a number of lesser known singers like Smiley Wilson, Tommy Sosebee, and Dolly Dimples. On the disc are two nice early recordings by Johnny & JackÊ (UNLOVED & UNCLAIMED and THATÕS WHY IÕM CRYING OVER YOU). There is also one mandolin tune (RAGTIME ANNIE) by the excellent Paul BuskirkÑa crackerjack picker who never got the attention or credit he deserved.Ê YOU CALL EVERYONE DARLING, MY CROSS EYED GAL, CRYINÕ IN VAIN, etc.
