Description

The focus of this release is to track the evolution of the music in its first forty years as an art form, from the start of the 1920s, when it was raw, embryonic, and rural, to the early 1960s when the rise of the 'Nashville Sound' had resulted in mainstream Country music becoming more Pop and polished, where the oldtime rustic fiddles had been forced out by the shiny,lush string sections that had more in common with a Hollywood studio set than a dark mountain holler.

100 songs tracing the history of Country Music encompassing Hillbilly, Honky Tonk, Bluegrass, Western Swing, Cajun, the Nashville Sound, Western, saga songs and Trucking music. All of the finest exponents are featured within the 4 CD's.

The 28 page illustrated booklet tells the story of this ever developing music.
