20 Originals From The Country & Western Hall Of Fame.VA..320 Kbps

Now this compilation took me completely by surprise nearly every track is a good Un'....Apart from "Johnny Cash" & "Roy Orbison" whose voices are easily recognisable...The rest are finding their way to the voices that we associate them today !!.....For example "Jerry Lee Lewis" does a great job on "Cold Cold Heart" I bet that you wouldn't have guessed it was him if you didn't know and a great piano bit in the middle hope it was him playing !!!..and then we have "Conway Twitty" doing a "Elvis" on "Give Me Some Love".....and one track that I think is the best one on this L/P and again if you didn't know who it was you would be surprised who it actualy is and it's definatly not a CW song more likes a "Blues"...What's the track you ask !!!
well now.... "Those Places Around Town" by "Charlie Rich"......As I  said at the begining this is a great selection of songs and don't let the title put you off....."Kudos" to the folks at "Pickwick" who put this together.....So Enjoy this One !!!!
