(Various Artists) There's not much to recommend this 28 track sampling from the early post-war years. It's 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 & Jack (UNLOVED & UNCLAIMED and THAT'S WHY I'M CRYING OVER YOU). There is also one mandolin tune (RAGTIME ANNIE) by the excellent Paul Buskirk --a crackerjack picker who never got the attention or credit he deserved. YOU CALL EVERYONE DARLING, MY CROSS EYED GAL, CRYIN' IN VAIN, etc.
