Louisiana Hayride - Classic Country Radio Volume 1
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 2007
Label: Synergie OMP
A laundry list of Nashville country heavyweights -- Hank Snow, Jim Reeves, George Jones, Webb Pierce, Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, among others -- perform the songs that made them famous on this national treasure of a radio show. Presumably recorded approximately a thousand years ago, these songs, with uniformly fantastic pedal steel and Western swing/C&W/soft-lit Nashville-sound backing may as well be from a different world. Johnny Cash's "Five Feet High and Rising" is a lot of fun.
