This is the cornerstone of every Country music collection! – Colin Escott, May 2018
Who was the greatest Country singer of all time? Some might say Merle Haggard, but Merle disagreed. ''There's no way I can describe the effect Lefty Frizzell had,'' Merle told us. ''The soul of Hank Williams, the appeal of Johnny Cash and the charisma of Elvis Presley. He had it all. He was dressed all in white - heroes usually are. The impact he had on Country Music, and on me is not even measurable.'' George Jones began his career almost as a Lefty tribute act. Much of Willie Nelson’s phrasing comes from Lefty Frizzell. When Roy Orbison joined the Traveling Wilburys, it was as Lefty Wilbury. Lefty's songs brought newfound poetry to Country music. Lefty Frizzell’s influence is incalculable.
