4 CD set! This set includes 100 songs & tunes from the King and Starday catalogs, ranging from well-known classics to some obscure but worthy barely known items. Notes by editor Gary Reid. The first of the four discs is devoted to the King label, with multiple tracks by Wade & J.E. Mainer, Shannon Grayson, Tommy Magness, Mac Odell and Jimmy Martin & Bob Osborne. The 3 discs from Starday contain cuts by Red Allen, Vern & Ray, Bill & Mary Reid, Jim & Jesse, Kentucky Travelers, Connie & Joe, Buzz Busby and Jim Eanes as well as the expected music by Reno & Smiley, the Stanley Brothers, Carl Story and Country Gentlemen among others.
