Description

Ground breaking pioneer of Country music in Australia over a career that enjoyed success spanning five decades of radio, TV, records, concerts, tours. Although hailing from Australia, Reg had success in America becoming the first Australian to perform on the Saturday night Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and the first Australian country artist to be recognised with a plaque on Nashvilles Walkway of Stars. Here are 28 tracks from a rare period in his career from 1958-1962, taken mainly from scarce 45rpm singles and EPs recorded in Sydney and never previously released outside Australia and New Zealand. Hear his unique interpretations of the country hits of the day Australian, Canadian and American never emulating the originals. Liner notes by Country Music broadcaster and writer Paul Hazell.
